    Hey all I am new to the forum and just thought I would post up a couple of new things I found that Siri can do since I haven't seen anyone else mention this yet seeing as it isn't a major feature or tech update. I don't know if this is iOS6 Beta 2 specific or if she will give back these results on iOS5 too.

    Now I never asked this question running iOS5 but I never hear of anyone asking her this question either but she will SING! I asked her to sing a song and this is what I got!

    Now if you are not familiar with this song it is part of the song that the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz sings when he sings about if he only had a brain!

    Now the next new thing is she seems to have a new story that she tells if you ask her to tell you a story.

    Again, I know this isn't some major tech subject matter, but I thought it would be fun to share!

    It's not a new story, I used to get told the same one when I got my phone last year - I always have to ask about 5 times until she'll actually read that story though! As for the song, I've never tried asking on iOS5.

    I remember the Eliza stuff from day one. But the part about taking a dump and other stuff is new. And EPIC. Someone must have been reading all the top asked questions and decided to put a reference in siri.

    EDIT
    Replicated in iOS 5.
    Could still be a new feature. Siri is a cloud based service and can be updated without system side updates. They could have added the dump part of the story recently. I don't think it is related to iOS6. Good find though.

    EDIT 2
    I could not however replicate the song in iOS 5. Maybe it is only replying with the song for iOS 6 users?

    The story is legit. I can see it on iOS 5. As you can see from the attachments I am on sprint not AT&T. Im not just copying the OP's pics. Try it out for yourself if you have siri.

    It took asking her 5 times with two pleases, but she finally did it on beta 2.

    "OK if you insist". I do.

    I think this is a new one as well.

    Some Apple employee just thinking these up somewhere. I like to think this is what Cook does all day.

    I got her to do it by saying;

    "Sing me a song or you're fired!"

    He sings for me (UK English, iOS 6B2).

    First attempt he said "I can't sing", then I said "No go on sing a song"

    Siri: "Ok, if you insist ..."

    Siri: "I could while away the hours, conferring with the flowers, consulting with the rain ..."

    Siri: "And my head I'd be scratching, while my thoughts were busy hatching, if I only had a ... hey wait a second!"

    Me: "Thank you Siri, how about another song"

    Siri: "It is I who should be thanking you."

    Me: "Do you know another song?"

    Siri: "Ok... how about a web search for 'Do you know another song'?"
