Things Siri Says; Things Siri Can Do
For a comprehensive list of functions Siri can perform (and, yes, we’re sure more will be added and more will be discovered every day by astute users), check out tuaw.com’s post here. One thing we’ll point out that not many people have noticed yet is that Siri’s behavior can change according to circumstance. For example, when I paired my iPhone 4S to a Bluetooth speakerphone, Siri read more stuff out loud than she previously did when I was holding the phone (so, she knows I’m paired and acts accordingly). Further, Siri’s dictation abilities are far superior to any voice-recognition software we’ve ever tested (and we’ve tested A LOT over the years). Just remember to use punctuation (get used to saying “comma,” “period,” “question mark,” “exclamation point,” etc. What’s most fun about the “novelty act” of Siri is the constant feeling of searching for Easter Eggs.
We’ve enjoyed articles that test the limits of Siri’s comprehension, but we thought you could do better, so we asked you to submit your best question ideas for Siri. I promised I would give them a try on Siri (no matter how strange). Here are your best suggestions, with Siri’s cleverest responses.
