Clearly you don't live in Britain, otherwise you'd understand how polite and accommodating we are.
If there are no seats, ask a fellow passenger if you can sit on their lap. They'll usually oblige, unless they have a very good reason.
Try it the next time you visit.
I'm genuinely curious here, do any Slashdotters use Siri on a regular (let's say daily) basis? What do you use it for?
I've always thought this kind of tech to be more of a gimmick, something to show your mates every now and again.

I was an iPhone fan when they first came out. I remember standing in the phone shops, looking at the Android phones running the laggy Gingerbread and wondering why anyone would want to buy a POS like that.
Then I ran into antenna-gate while I was trying to get a job. Eventually I told callers that I had an iPhone so if the call ended suddenly it was because of that, and not because I'd just hung up on them. As soon as my contract was up I moved to Android.

What's the obsession with metal frames? Message boards are filled with hipsters ranting about how cheap a plastic frame looks.
Whenever I get a new phone, the first thing I do is wrap it in a plastic protector to protect the body.
Cows have best friends.
I see Apple's flat style is continuing to be copied^H^H^H used as inspiration for UI developers.
I only just installed Kubuntu 14.04 over the weekend. Can't be arsed to go through all that again.
I still don't think teleporting would leave the soul intact. To the observer, the result may act and behave in the same way before the teleportation took place, but I wonder if it would be the same person?
