    Useful stuff, like:
    • Setting the timer.
    • Add items to Reminders shopping list.
    • And other quick reminders.
    • A quick note to myself
    • Ask the time, when driving and wanting to keep my eyes on the road.
    • Dictation for messages and posts.
    • Start Flashlight app in the dark.
    • Play (music, artist, playlist) when walking.

    Misc not really useful things, like:
    • Roll the dice
    • Flip a coin
    • Get a random number.


    Ask silly questions, like:
    • What is the Force?
    • What's my name?
    • Why did the chicken cross the road?
    • And other stuff when I think of them.

    I have mine set to Chinese to hear Siri speak my native language for fun. I don't use Siri otherwise.

    Siri will type for me when I get sick of pecking out letters or my thumbs are sore.It's to embarrassing to use in public though.People look at me funny when I talk to my ipad3. .Funny when I first got it I didn't know about siri and when she asked me by name "how can I help you I freaked and immediately shut down my ipad.lol:)

    What is playing at the movies?
    What is the temperature going to be today?
    What is the weather forecast for Thursday?
    Take me to a location, contact, or business.
    Call a person, or dial a number
    Add an appointment to my calendar
    Remind me to do something at a specific time.
    What is the score of a ball game?
    Show me a person in my contact list.
    What appointments do I have today?

    Just told Siri to "Remind me to wear something green on St. Patricks Day", and it worked. Cool.

    I don't have it on any of my devices, but many of my friends do, and from what I've heard they always forget about it!

    I used it once to send a test text to a friend in my iPad. I guess I will need to practice more lol.

    When I'm not around home
    Find the nearest Starbucks, library, Italian restaurant, etc.
