Anyone have a iPhone?

Just curious if this is real as I've heard about it. Many may know about it already but Im curious and don't have a iPhone to try it. Only a Android.

Ask Siri:
What is July 27th 2014?

What does it say?

I've just tried it on my iPad Air and apparently "It's Sunday July 27th 2014 (opening the gates of Hades)"

Apple’s iPhone assistant Siri sometimes gives an odd response about “opening [the] gates of Hades,” the Greek mythological term for Hell, or the underworld, when one asks what will happen on July 27th, according to reports. Several Epoch Times reporters got the response.

If you ask, “What is July 27,” then Siri will say “It’s Sunday, 27 July 2014 (Opening Gates Of Hades).”

Cult of Mac reported that if you reword the question to when the gates of hell are opening, Siri will say they already opened on May 14, 2005.

As the website notes, the odd apocalyptic responses are glitches in Apple’s Wolfram Alpha, which is the engine that drives Siri.

According to an Apple forum discussion, “Opening Gates of Hades” might be in reference to “Chinese Ghost Month.” But others speculated it has to do with the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, where the gates of “heaven open and the gates of hell close.”......

This is at the bottom of the story, apparently the fellow is somewhat upset over it.

Maybe it's the codename for a new OS?

Ok, got my tin foil hat on.


This is odd.
I just read that it is such a odd glitch because of a response saying the gates will close for Sept. 3rd 2014, which is after those events.

Anyone care to test Sept. 3rd 2014 see what it says?
