Ever since we got our iPhone 4S, we’ve been having a lot of fun with its built-in digital assistant, Siri. An excellent repository to all kinds of Siri tricks has been LifeWithSiri.com. Now, there’s Life with Siri, an ebook that compiles the funniest Siri responses from the site, giving you plenty of fodder to show off your new iPhone 4S to your envious Christmas guests.
Jodi Dery, the author of the book, gave us permission to show you 10 of the funniest Siri dialogues, giving you a sneak preview of the Life with Siri ebook. We took a look at a copy of the book, and it’s not only a humorous source of Siri sarcasm and saucy rejoinders, but it’s full of useful info about what Siri can do and how you can use it.
“Life with Siri” is an appropriate title for this book, because now that we’ve lived with it for a couple of months, we’re started to realize what this software can do. Although we use it mostly to set our alarms, it’s especially good in a pinch, when we’re in a hurry and don’t even have time to type anything.
For instance, in addition to having a lot of fun with Siri, texting is completely hands-free, and we even taught it how to post on Twitter for us. Heck, we hear even Santa uses Siri.
But if you just received an iPhone 4S for Christmas, it’s hard to tell precisely what Siri can and cannot do. The gallery below will show you some of the clever things you can do with Siri, but the book will show you even more. The software has tremendous potential, which is well-demonstrated in this book.
This book gives you a lot of info for your $1.99, the price of the electronic version of Life with Siri, now available on Amazon and elsewhere. You can also get it as a print edition for $4.99, to be published on Jan. 2.
