My "England" really that bad mer?

I was browsing around my favourite Mass Order section of VRZone when I came across this interesting clock, Moshi Voice Control Alarm Clock. Interesting because you can give the clock instruction for various functions, like asking for time and temperature, set time and alarm, turn on the night light, all without touching the clock.

I thought it was pretty cool, like those futuristic movies where the computer greets you when you wake up, tell you the day, time and weather, that I decided to get one. But it turn out to be frustratingly funny rather than cool.

What do I mean? Check out what happen when I tried to show off to Lilian the new toy.

Vincent: Hello Moshi
Moshi: Welcome, command please
Vincent: Set time
Moshi: Tell me the correct time
Vincent: 9.30am
Moshi: The time is now set to 9.13am

Hmm, maybe I wasn't clear enough. So I try agan.

Vincent: Hello Moshi
Moshi: Welcome, command please
Vincent: Set time
Moshi: Tell me the correct time
Vincent: 9.30am
Moshi: The time is now set to 9.13pm

At this point, Lilian burst out laughing... Feeling embrassed, I was determine to set it right.

Vincent: Hello Moshi
Moshi: ... (ignored me)
Vincent: HELLO MOSHI
Moshi: Welcome, command please
Vincent: Set time
Moshi: Tell me the correct time
Vincent: 9.31am
Moshi: The time is now set to 9.31pm

By now Lilian was rolling on the bed laughing non-stop.

Vincent: HELLO MOSHI
Moshi: Welcome, command please
Vincent: SET TIME
Moshi: Tell me the correct time
Vincent: 9.31 A-M!
Moshi: The time is now set to 5.31am

I gave up and set the time manually with the buttons...
