When Voice Recognition Goes Bad — Horribly Bad

I was grocery shopping the other day and wanted to find out what a hothouse tomato is so I spoke the words “hothouse tomatoes” into the Google Mobile App for the iPhone and it returned “penthouse letters”. Not exactly what I was expecting.

Normally this app is amazing in how well it figures out what I said but I can’t figure out how it got this one so wrong. Strange indeed.
