Siri and accents

It looks like accents will make a difference with Siri. In his review, MG Siegler of Tech Crunch notes that Siri didn't work for him initially because Siri's setting was set to the UK English.
Also awesome: when I first tried out the service in London, Siri was set to UK English. It didn’t understand a word I was saying. The Apple reps couldn’t figure out what was going on. But a quick change of the settings had it working perfectly. Siri understands accents as well.
As someone noted on iMerlion's Facebook page, time to practice your fake accents!
