With ease I can tell it to "remind me at 7am on Monday morning to call Susan" and it set up a reminder! I can ask it to text a person and dictate the text, all without touching a keyboard. I have a feeling I am only scratching the surface. If you are on the go and need to remember something and yet do not have the time to type it in . . . . well friends. Looks like Steve has left us with a great future!
