Not really sure why they felt the need to issue an explanation, unless they were trying to stop the inevitable deluge of complaints by vicariously offended people. Rather amusing really. His response on twitter was excellent

They just cannot get this voice/print software right can they? I was at Olympia during the build up to an IBM launch of voice activated software years ago where the presentation was in full flow showing how the presenters words into a microphone could so easily be translated into the written word on screen.At this point, a Contractor working nearby dropped a hammer on his foot and uttered an expletive along the lines of sex and travel and this popped up, clear as a bell on the presenters screen to the crowd.

What we wanted to know was who had programmed this into the voice activated softwaresmiling smiley

Reminds me of the (apocryphal) story of the IBM man first showing voice recognition to a crowd using a laptop. Suddenly someone in the audience shouts out.

"format c:"
"yes"

He was trying to use his voice to reformat the C drive on the laptop the IBM chap was using. If you were typing in DOS, the command would have been "format C", then they'd ask you to confirm the instruction, upon which you'd type "yes". Just being a wag basically.

Not really. You can roll the drive back by popping it in the microwave for a few minutes.
