The Telegraph is reporting a glitch with a new Google app for the iPhone. Said app uses voice-recognition to allow the user to search for information. Only thing is, it can't cope with British accents. God bless you, Internet 2.0.

The Welsh one is best of all; I was engaged to a Welsh girl for a while, back in the day, and for the life of me I can't work out how the app hears `iPhone' in a Welsh accent as `gorillas.'
