    They won't like this one bit will they, not one bit, especially as they had said the older phones where not good enough to run it.

      Bunch of narrow minded, closeted pilchards.

    ...actually found a practical use for Siri once you get bored of amusing friends and co-workers on day 1?

    Anyone care to enlighten me?
