    I just bought the new iPhone and have been messing with the new feature siri. I am curious as to when I do a search for a restaurant or other business using Siri, how is siri looking for these answers? Is it using the Internet? A local database or something similar with predefined answers?

    Also how do I get my company(or a clients company) to appear in this list of suggestions?

    I have noticed that if Siri can not find a specific answer, it directs me to use google search. Which there Google works like normal and my business name shows up.

    It's been listed in all the literature/posts and news coming out from Apple that Siri gets its restaurant/business info from Yelp and uses it to list the restaurants/businesses in order of user rating.

    www.yelp.com

    Apparantly, your business isn't listed in Yelp?
