Apple's Siri Being Changed Because Of Barbra Streisand

Of all the injustices in this world, Siri pronouncing a celebrity name wrong is one of the most shocking and appalling. Thankfully this situation is being personally remedied by Apple's CEO in the next iOS update. Let's just hope this never, ever happens again.

STREISAND: (Laughter) She pronounces my name wrong.

SIMON: Yeah, I noticed that.

STREISAND: Streisand with a soft S, like sand on the beach. I've been saying this for my whole career. And so what did I do? I called the head of Apple, Tim Cook, and he delightfully agreed to have Siri change the pronunciation of my name, finally, with the next update on September 30th.
