Isabelle Zahn's curator insight, January 2, 7:56 PM

This article applies to language because of the whole accents concept. It als fits into pop culture because it is talking about the phone that millions of people around the world have. In this article it talks about how Siri the i phone voice recognition command can tell many languages and accents. The only accent that Siri cannot comprehend is that of a Latino. This has relevance in many communities because lots of people all over the world have i phones and use Siri including Latinos. In places that is a majority of Latinos the i phone if it wants to really apply to them should be able to understand their accent just like it could of anyone else. Short term effects could be people listening to what Apple had to say and just trying to use it more so that it will recognize them just like it would any other accent. A long term effect would be Apple making Siri understand the accent and maybe do other things with the i phone to make it apply more to Latinos making their market even bigger.
