    IBM has banned the use of Siri over Privacy issues on their network. The company thinks that the queries spoken over to Siri might be stored somewhere, since we are unclear of what happens to the data once it reaches the Apple Data Centers.

    What do you think? I'm afraid that my company would follow IBM! :-(

    Source is not The4Cast. The4Cast points to a Wired article, which in turn points to an MIT Technology Review article about the "bring your own device" movement in corporations - specifically, IBM's experiennce with it. The Siri bit is three sentences in the MIT article - Siri is one of many features that IBM disables or modifies. Dropbox, for example, is not allowed either.
