Siri, New iPhone Virtual Assistant, Works With Your Girlfriend to Bust Your Cheating Ass
A girl's best friend?
Ashton Kutcher, you definitely don't want to get the new iPhone.
Reports indicate that the iPhone 4S' voice-activated assistant, Siri, can still take commands when your phone is otherwise passcode locked. Meaning that your wife -- Demi Moore, for example -- can ask it to redial the last number called or otherwise embark on any number of intrusive inquiries that will having you packing for the nearest Hard Rock Hotel.
Siri seems like girlfiend's best friend. The Washington Post today warns:

Scary stuff, huh Ashton?
The good news is that she only works as a default: All you need to do is go into your settings and turn Siri off (shouldn't be too hard for some of you guys to turn a woman off).
For all you players out there, there's still the Blackberry.
