    Been trying Siri for the first time. Where does it get it's info from and can we send in corrections/comments?

    I tried three things
    1) "Italian Restaurants" & got a good list of local ones, impressive but shame about two on the same address one of which went out of business 2 years ago.
    2) Then I tried "Football clubs" and it could not find any - big surprise as I live in Birmingham - what happened to Aston Villa, Birmingham City, Wolves, West Brom & Coventry to mention but a few.
    3) Finally I asked for "Baptist Churches", I'm a member of one just a mile away and it did not appear nor did one or two other in the local area although I was offered 15 others up to 18 kilometres away - ps why not miles in the UK?

    I think Siri is likely to equate "Football" with the American version of the game. Maybe try "Soccer" instead.

    Miles? Good question. The assumption is probably that the EU uses kilometers, and that's it.

    Youre getting miles because the Apple servers are in the US! :)
