New Iphone: Why Is Apple's Siri Female?

My first reaction was hmm, is Siri sexest? But the answer to the question is deeper than that.

Siri, are you male or female? If you ask this question of the iPhone 4S voice assistant, it won't give you a clear answer, but most people assume that the distinctly feminine-sounding voice comes from a woman.

Many electronics, such as GPS devices or voicemail boxes, are female, and according to a CNN report, there is likely a psychological reason behind this. Siri sounds female in at least the U.S. and four other countries, although in France and the U.K., Siri sounds male. 
Meanwhile, Siri's clever answers to the questions of iPhone 4S users has provided plenty of material for blogs, memes, and Tumblr and Twitter accounts. For more on Siri see How to Use Siri, How to Teach Siri Your Name, and 30 Questions and Commands for Siri.
