Those TVs might not sell all that great in Scotland, Siri doesn't wear plaid very well

Siri has received generally positive reviews since the 4S was launched. It seems to do a pretty decent job of freeing your fingers while answering your questions. Provided, of course, you speak English in a standard, American or British accent. Cross the pond and skip over to the Scottish Isles, and Siri gets confused. When a woman with a reasonably mild, Scottish accent asks Siri, "Is it a nice day," The phone responds, "I don't know know what you mean by 'is it an a-s-d-tuh-sez.'"

Looks like someone won't be getting a new iPhone 4S
