    How useful is siri
    pretty reasonable actually according to this little article. UK based so apparently there is less going for it than the US, but still seems a good thing to have as an add on.

    It will get more useful over time as well.

    Specs:
    2011 MB Air Core i7 256GB, 2011 Mini with 8GB RAM, iPad 2, iPhone 4S, 2TB Time Capsule
    Texting while driving... Worth it for that alone. Then the reminders and appointments. So easy to just tell the phone what I need to do and it's taken care of.

    Pretty awesome I'd say. Especially if you want to find stuff locally. The texting while driving is awesome too.

    I think Siri is great. As obviously mentioned, it is in beta. From what I've seen so far though, it's got a lot of potential and it's very exciting. I've been speaking to a few people about Siri recently and their opinions are quite varied. I've heard so many people saying that it's useless. Typically, these people don't even have an iPhone. I get the idea that most people don't really know what it's capable of and that it's simply just a polished version of the Voice Recognition which ships on all iPhones. Well, I guess we know better, right?

    How can these people have opinions on something they don't own or have not experienced. >_>?

    I'd really like Siri to get a GlaDos voice makeover!
