    Last evening I was out for my evening walk (using Fitbits to ensure I do my 10,000 steps) when a driver asked me if I knew where a certain street was.

    I didn't know but pulled out my iPhone and asked SIRI, at first she didn't know where the street was because it turned out to be a cup-de-sac. But then he gave me the main street that it was off of and then SIRI was able to show exactly were he wanted to go.

    The driver and his wife were visibly impressed.

    Of course Champaign, IL is the home of Wolfram Alpha, heart of SIRI's search engine, and the University of Illinois (the Fighting Illini) so it should come as no surprise that SIRI would work well here. :D

    Could've typed it in. Let's give credit where it's due - to the mapping system.

    For me it works the majority of the time. But in circumstances like that it would have left me looking like a fool.
