    I use Siri on a daily basis, I'd be lost without her.

    I hope you do not mind me asking this, but are you visually impaired? I'm asking because I am visually impaired and I have many blind and visually impaired friends who use Siri.

    I don't think you can use Siri being visually impaired due to her creative interpretation of your speech without letting the recipient of any messages know Siri is in the driver's seat so they forgive the un intended results that are bound to arise.

    It does make for interesting conversation though - "I didn't say that". "Oh yes you did, look at this". "Not me dude (or dudette), I don't speak mandarin and that sure looks Mandarin to me". ...

    She makes up her own words a lot of times, nothing to do with what you actually said. I've Siri'd friends while walking or running, not checked what she heard, and really sent some STRANGE messages. :) :( :)

    I use an iPad 2 and an iPhone 3GS, so I've hardly used Siri at all. Siri, while fun and in some cases useful, is not something that I'd feel compelled to pay more for.

    Siri on iOS 7 does a great job! Although I think it still sounds a bit like a robot :S
