You are obviously describing some custom video player app crashing. I've seen many of those do the same thing, without AirPlay and long before iOS6. Just another buggy app.

Only the new iPad is the device that didn't have Siri and is getting it now, but she is unleashed in her full glory. Also, finally she's been informed about the existence of restaurants in Canada. :)

I officially declare that I do not see or claim that any conspiracies between Google and/or Android users exist, especially when it comes to expressing opinions.
