Have a Laugh With SIRI

One of my major hobbies at the moment is listening to the radio.

Earlier today I was listening to the B.B.C. on my iPad and there was a program describing the history of the robot in the cinema and comparing this with the reality of robotics  in science.

But in the midst of a quite serious programme came a brief respite. If you have an iPhone or iPad with Siri, try asking your favourite computer aide  to complete  the following task:

"Open the pod bay doors Hal."

Seems the geeks at Apple have a sense of humor and know the script of Stanley Kubrick's 2001 A Space Oddessy. I tried also asking what to do about Klingon's on the starboard bow, but it seems Cuppertino's best are not Trekkies.
