    Have you asked Siri that question? Siri will tell you. Actually Siri is a voice activated interface that you can use instead of typing text. Being hands free, it's pretty handy for things like dialing your phone, search for information on the web, adding appointments, sending text messages without typeing, and that kind of thing. It's probably one of the best voice interpreting programs out there. It's better than Dragon Naturally Speaking (in my humble personal opinion). You do have to be connected to wi-fi or at least 3G for it to work, since it sends info back and forth to apple's servers to do much of it's hard work. Some of the Siri intelligence resides in software on the phone or ipad though, so simple tasks like dialing from your contact list work well even if not connected. But if you want to narrate a long text message.. then it will bomb out if it's not connected.

  • Siri Does Many things!
    Such as when you click on Siri you can say "Hey Siri, Whats a Good Restaurant Around Here?" Then Siri Finds you a restaurant around your area.
    You can also say " Hey Siri, Post "Having a great time" on my facebook page."
    One more thing you can say is "Hey Siri, Remind me to bring my text books to class."
    Then Siri says "Okay I will remind you." then you say "Thanks Siri." Then Siri says "No Problem!.
    So thats not all that Siri does. Siri is Voice Control But more Advanced!
    Hope This Helped!

  • Siri not only gives you answers to questions, but she also has a good sense of humor.
    Ask her to open the pod bay doors.

  • Siri is the smart personal assistant that helps you get things done just by asking. It allows you to use your voice to send messages, place phone calls, ask the weather, and more. You can use Siri in other languages too. Siri is also available for the iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPad mini, and iPod touch (5th generation).

    To talk to Siri, all you need to do is to hold down the Home button and you’ll hear two quick beeps and see “What can I help you with?” on the screen. Just start speaking. :)
