Siri -a list of commands, Easter eggs
How's about a list then?
When we're getting used to Siri, it'll be useful to know what the limits of it are, and also some cool shortcuts, and searches it can do, examples of how you use it.
We have a rough outline from Apple. Plan is - if people are interested, i'll flesh out this post and the ones below with the reach and syntax it can take etc.[COLOR="#808080"]
<Work in progress>
- Can you use contacts via their nickname?
- Can it search custom labels? (e.g. for custom label for a phone number for contacts (e.g. work emergency mobile)
***Confirmed words in bold, queries in italics***
General starting words:
Address Book: Querying Contacts, Finding Contacts, Relationships
Calendars: Adding Events, Changing Events, Asking About Events
Alarms: Setting Alarms, Checking the Clock, Using a Timer

This is a great thread and I think it should come back to life now that many newbies will be joining the forums and the iPhone 5.
