What commands should Siri get right, but isn't?

    I have been using Siri for a few days now, and I have had three 'easy' questions or commands that I thought would be no problem, yet it didn't figure out. And it should ask to "search the web" on a few other occasions...

    "Create and alarm for Saturday at 7:30am to go volunteer." (It can't make alarms more than 24 hours out)
    "What is the score of the Detroit Lions game?" (Should have asked to search the web if it didn't know)
    "Show me a map of the Appalachian Trail" (Siri did know how long it was)

    I know this is pretty new, and hopefully it will learn and improve as time goes on. But have you asked Siri any questions or thought it could do something easy and found out it didn't know?

    Maybe they need to add in something like IBM's Watson to it's knowledge gathering system...or will that create true AI and the Terminator's SkyNet will become iCloud... ;)

    Set a reminder instead, it's what you're actually trying to do anyway; remind yourself.

    I was able to get the score of the Eagles game, no problem...

    Siri has no problems making alarms for 5 minutes out, or 5 days out for me. I wish she would understand telling her an alarm for certain days. Like every Monday, Thursday, and Friday.

    I tried to add an all day calendar entry for November 6th "Daylight Savings Time" and it didn't matter if I said "November 6, 2011" or "November 6", Siri kept responding that she couldn't create a calendar event in the past.

    Uh...it's October...??
