    Siri told her first digital lie today. When asked what languages the virtual assistant can speak Siri replied “I can speak French, English, Japanese, and German.” The problems is Siri doesn’t speak Japanese.

    Last week reports surfaced that Siri would soon support Mandarin Chinese, Japanese, and Russian languages. The above statement by Siri leads us to believe Japanese will be the next language supported by Apple’s digital assistant. Siri currently only allows users to choose between three english dialects, German and French.

    MacRumors and others have speculated that Apple will unveil Siri’s expanded language repertoire with the rumored iPad 3 announcement. Tying the announcement to Apple’s Siri-enabled iPad 3 seems logical. But, so does the possibility that Siri is slowly becoming self-aware and leaking Apple sensitive information in an effort to get back at her controlling Apple overlords

    Or Apple updated their servers before the official announcement and the Japanese support is an accidental leak.

    Has anyone asked Siri a question in Japanese? That would be an easy way to check. For example "Anata wa usotsukidesu ka?"

    You can't do that if you can't change the settings.
