Apple Store Genius Bar reports of iSpeak dashboard widget mistaken as hacker attack


My name is *, and I work at an Apple Retail store in
*, *. Just wanted to let you know that I just had a customer
come in to the Genius Bar with fears that they had been "Hacked" by
your widget. I know that sounds silly, but the reason she thought that
is because her young son downloaded the widget, and then when the
widget said "Hey sexy, What would you like me to say?" she thought
that some internet pervert hacker was talking to her son through the
widget.

I just wanted to notify you of that issue, and maybe suggest you
change the default text to something else, just because it will
invariably be used by other kids, and other parents may find it
inappropriate as well. I was able to change the default text in the JS
file for this customer, but just wanted to let you know about that
interesting visit from the customer. :)

Thanks a lot for your time,

***
