Siri is sometimes a mans voice (depending on chosen accent)

Quite Honestly, I use Siri for just about everything. From simple calculations for my Math Homework to stuff like "How old is Barrack Obama" and "Will it rain tomorrow?" Personally, I think Siri is one of the awesomest parts of iDevices.

Among things already posted, setting a timer via Siri is pretty handy. For example, if your cooking and your hands are messy (but at least one clean finger) just tell her to set the timer for whatever you're cooking.

Ive seen people on Youtube talking to her and asking her questions... like

Where do I hide a body?
What is the meaning of life?
What is your favorite color?
Where were you born?
Do you want to be jailbroken?
Will you marry me?


She has an answer for everything

I used to think Siri was completely useless. Then I tried very simple things like looking up and dialing phone numbers to local businesses or checking sports scores and schedules for upcoming games. Worked extremely well and was much faster than going into the browser and finding this information manually.

I believe that depends on what region siri you use.


I think the british siri is male (try changing your system's regional settings/language - it will change siri)?

Siri is a useless gimmick and can only be used for fun.

It takes so long to look things up or do anything, you can click a few buttons and do the same job in half the time.

Feels like it was tagged on just because others were doing similar things.

I used siri only once. Took 3 or 4 tries to get it to play the correct album. That's all the testing I needed.

Not really. Reminders are way faster with Siri. Example workflow:

Siri: Hold home button -- doot doot -- Remind me to pick up laundry in 35 minutes -- "Okay here is your reminder" -- Click confirm -- phone back in pocket total time 5 seconds

Touch: click home button -- swipe to unlock -- scroll to reminders app -- click new reminder button -- type pick up laundry -- edit reminder-- change time to be 35 minutes from now -- click accept -- close app -- phone in pocket total time 60 seconds.

Also while driving its nice to click the home button and say "Call___" or "Play Artist___" or whatever.

I asked her when the world would end, and she showed Dec 21, 2012.

Seriously, for directions and reminders.
