I heard a distant voice as I was watching a news show on TV and had my iPhone charging on a shelf. I looked around and saw the that the phone screen was illuminated and apparently the voices on TV talking about Syria triggered Siri
Heheh, just came here to post this. Yes this has been happening while my phone is charging. Random TV shows at random times, I did rewind my DVR when it happened once, play again and a name "Cindy" triggered Siri.
Just happened again watching CNN. The word "Syria" triggered it not once but three times. Followed by "I'm not sure what you said..."
No complaints, the words, how they sound are similar, I can see how it can set Siri off. On the plus side it is working - sensitive, but working. I can always turn the feature off but I actually use it.
As much as I would like that and find it quite cleaver, in the world post U2 album 19th Sept - I would say that people would actually riot if Apple took it upon themselves to include the world in on their advert without consent. People love overreacting and would soil themselves to scramble over each other to throw each other on to the prior of Apple bashing.
