Siri Quick Tip: Wikipedia
Authored by: Sigma on Oct 31, '11 06:01:34PM

Just for the fact that it can understand me millions of times better than the old "Voice Control" makes it extremely valuable. I don't think Voice Control EVER played the music that I told it to even though I hopelessly tried again and again.

Dictating text, creating appointments and reminders, and just being able to call people without looking at the phone while driving makes it insanely useful. When you try to get a little more playful with what you ask it to do, it does show how much improvement it could use (try creating TWO alarms with one sentence). Any ambient voices will completely ruin your chances of it understanding you. And it NEEDS a data connection; without one it simply does not work at all.

That is a big problem for me: i'm on the road a lot and, not only does Siri need a data connection, it needs a quite good one (i've never gotten it to work with just an Edge connection).
Even plain dictation does not function without a good connection... (Even though Dragon Dictate, its alleged dictation engine, does)
i'd like to try Siri and know what all the fuss is about, but, for now anyway, i'm afraid i can only be less than impressed...
Be Well,
Peter

So, do you currently own an iPhone 4S? Your comments leave me unsure.

Thanks

My point was that i do own a 4S (phone company gave it to me for free 2 days after launch), but that i haven't really had the opportunity to try Siri since even the dictation functionality requires a fast connection
Be Well,
Peter
