Apple's Siri Now Off The Hook(er) in Chinese Escort Scandal
Apple's Siri voice recognition and virtual assistant platform makes it easy to call a girl. But it's also been used for call
girls. And that's a big problem say critics who lashed out against Apple in China, where prostitution services had previously made it through Siri's results filter.
But not anymore. According to a new report from The Times of India, Apple has addressed the issue.
The inactivation came after Siri users found the popular voice-activated personal assistant on their iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iPad3 responded to inquiries such as "Where can I find hookers?" or "Where can I find escorts?" by listing the nearest locations, mostly bars and clubs.

Why filter search results? All Siri is, is a glorified search engine. Does Google censor its searches?

FYI Apple "filters" Siri outside of China. I wasn't referring exclusively to China.
