Samsung Apologizes For Bixby Voice Assistant

Really people? In a world filled with hate, violence, war and crime, bitching about something like this is just insane.

"Users of Bixby, which began rolling out today, noticed something a bit different about Samsung’s voice-assistant: It could be configured to be male or female. While this might be a welcome change for some users, the way Samsung describes the two versions of the assistant decidedly wasn’t. Under the Bixby “language and speaking style” menu, Samsung notes in hashtags that the female version of Bixby is “chipper” and “cheerful” while the male version is “assertive” and “confident.” Both versions are described as “clear.”"
