Re: I love Siri
Susan: Glad you love Siri. Sounds like you have a great setup with the posh voice! My information screen is the Today pulldown. I have ESPN there for my teams' scores, Stocks, Weather, Calendar and transit info all on the pull down. It is really great for me. The information updates instantaneously (unlike the watch) and I use it all the time.

I will look into Siri although I just have not had any reason to ask it anything yet.

I love Siri
tjgkg, I love Siri. :) I use it quite a lot, and have good fun with it, too. I have set it to have a male's voice with an English accent and it sounds quite posh, which is nice. I also find it useful. It works well for me. What info screen have you set up on your Apple devices? -Susan

Not that great
It is so rare for me to use Siri. In fact articles like this remind me that it is a feature on my devices. That and pressing the Home button quickly. I don't really find Siri all that useful, especially when I have already set up an info screen (Today) on my Apple devices. So if i want to know the score of a team or stock I am following, I can bring up the screen with a swipe. And I have found Siri to be slower and less informative than what I can get from a good old fashioned google search.
