Overview

Life with Siri – 2nd Edition (2012) - $1.99

Siri is the unique iPhone 4S “personal assistant” with amazing understanding of natural, informal conversation. Siri perceives what you want much better than any 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 134-page 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 how to have Siri communicate with Twitter and 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 way to talk to Siri and get the results you want.” In fact, this eBook has many more screenshots, with less text to plow through, than any other eBook about communicating with Siri.

Yes, Siri is the new girl in town. She’s a dynamo. She’s also 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 questions you can ask her to evoke funny answers and entertain your friends.

But Siri is not just a barrel of fun. She’s full of smarts. Siri can do all of these things and more for you:

- Communicate with Twitter and Facebook
- Tell you exactly where one of your friends is at this moment
- Address you by whatever name you choose. (including any wild nickname).
