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.

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!
