Apple Will Fix iPhone's Abortion "Glitch"

On Wednesday, we were all up in arms about how iPhone's Siri robot can't find abortion clinics, instead recommending users travel to anti-abortion Crisis Pregnancy Centers.

Well, yesterday Apply vaguely apologized for the "glitch." They don't explain why it occurred, or exactly how they'll fix it (expand Siri's vocab?), but Apple's CEO told the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League that as Siri moves from a "beta to a final product, we [will] find places where we can do better."
