Life with Siri –2nd Edition (2012)
Siri is the unique iPhone 4S “personal assistant” with amazing voice-recognition capabilities. Siri understands natural, informal speech like no non-human device has ever done before. Your grammar can be totally deficient, but Siri will almost always understand what you mean!
Now, Life With Siri provides you with an awesome guide to getting the most fun and usefulness from Siri. This new 2nd Edition (published in January 2012) includes:
- More than 50 screenshots of the questions that evoke the FUNNIEST SIRI ANSWERS
- More than 50 screenshots of the BEST SIRI TIPS, including the way to have Siri send Tweets and post on Facebook
- A comprehensive guide to SIRI PUNCTUATION COMMANDS
- A comprehensive list of ALL THE THINGS SIRI CAN DO FOR YOU
Author Jodi Dery expresses great pride in this new eBook. She says, “We feel that presenting Siri’s responses in this illustrative manner -- with maximum use of screenshots and no more text than necessary -- will help people remember the best questions to ask Siri and the best way to get useful results.” In fact, this eBook has many more screenshots, with less text to plow through, than any other eBook relating to Siri.
Yes, Siri is the new girl in town. She’s a dynamo. She’s a comedienne. Siri’s hilarious responses continue to surprise people and make them laugh. For example, when someone asks Siri “where do babies come from” she usually responds with, “I found some baby stores three blocks down the road.” Then knowing your location, she lists the names and addresses of those stores. Siri's answers to “What is the meaning of life” are choice. She might respond with, “I find it odd that you would ask this of an inanimate object” or any one of 10 other funny responses to this seminal question. This unique eBook also contains screenshots of more than 50 other questions you can ask her to evoke funny answers and entertain your friends.
