When users posed the question in the invitation to Siri on their iPhones, Siri threw back responses such as "You're cute when you're desperate for information" and "You'll have to wait until Sept. 9. I bet you were one of those kids who snuck downstairs to open presents early, weren't you?"

   29-year-old Kinjal Patel   (C)NewHavenPoliceDept.
Kinjal Patel, 29 was found guilty of first-degree manslaughter for the death of 19 months old Athiyan Sivakumar, and would be serving 14years in prison.
Reporting on New Haven Register, the office of the chief state medical examiner ruled the child’s death a homicide and that the cause of death was blunt-force trauma with multiple sites of impact.
Apparently, Patel told police several versions of what had occurred before ultimately stating that after the toddler gave Patel a hard time about eating rice and spat water in her face, Patel picked up the boy and slammed his feet onto the kitchen floor about three times, then shook his head back and forth. The warrant quoted her saying she then pushed the boy in the face and he fell backward, hitting his head. Athiyan was reported to have died at the Yale-New Haven Hospital as a result of the injury he sustained.
Patel entered a plea under the Alford Doctrine. That means she does not agree with the state's case, but concedes there is enough evidence to secure her conviction. She will serve 14 years in prison.

Jonathan Elias, 18, and Brayan Valle, 19, has admitted in federal court to using drones to smuggle nearly 30 pounds of heroin from Mexico to the United States.
It was the first drug seizure involving a drone along California’s border with Mexico, said Lauren Mack, spokeswoman for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in San Diego. She was unaware of any other drone-related seizure on the 1,954-mile divide between the two countries, the Associated Press reports.
The teenagers said they drove to a field in Calexico, California where they picked up the 28.6 pounds of heroin that was sent across the border. Elias took over control of the drone from an operator in Mexico after the aircraft crossed the border, Mack said.
“With border security tight, drug traffickers have thought of every conceivable method to move their drugs over, under and through the border,” said Laura Duffy, U.S. attorney for the Southern District of California. “We have found their tunnels, their Cessnas, their jet skis, their pangas, and now we have found their drones.”
The defendants, both from El Centro, each face maximum sentences of 20 years in prison when they are sentenced Oct. 20 for possession of heroinwith intent to distribute.
