    Me: what do you think of me?
    Siri: I think differently.

    That is awesome.

    Siri: I will now call you 'daddy' from here on. Is that ok?"

    Anyone have any ideas if Siri can read text messages . If so how do I turn it on
    When you hold the home button to bring up Siri, there's little i you can click on and it shows a list of everything you can say. If you click on one(like messages) it shows you how to send a text and also how to have them read to you.

    Hope this helps

    Can someone ask siri to turn on or off an antenna like bluetooth or something? And ask siri to launch any specific app. Just want to know if these are possible. Thanks.

    Edit
    And what about asking siri to update you fb or twitter status, and telling it what to write & post w/o initially launching an app to do it.

    Can't launch apps or fb/twitter. Siri does say "I'm sorry, I can't launch that" and "sorry I cannot send tweets" so it knows what your talking about. I just isn't meant for that.

    Siri/voice recognition is built into the 4S keyboard (there's a microphone icon next to the space bar) and so you can go to facebook/twitter and just dictate and it types it out for you. This also works with taking notes, sending text, emailing as well.

    Thanks for doing that. Hopefully siri will just become even more filled out and comprehensive with updates and api's.

    Great, isn't it?

    I had the idea for the first one, when, after asking how much wood a wood chuck could chuck, it answered 'It depends if it's African or European wood'. :-)

    Remember, Apple said Siri is in beta, so there is always the chance they will add other features that we all want, like the ability to launch apps.

    I asked Siri "tell me a joke"

    She said "Two iPhone's walk in to a bar.....oh wait, I always forget the punchlines"

    I got a chuckle out of that.

    Found a more extensive list of Siri commands someone compiled together. On another note. I find it easier and quicker to do a speed to text when you are already in the text app. Seems to be a better way to use Siri already in the sms app.

    More Siri tips

    "new line" - move to the next line
    "all caps" - make the next word all uppercase
    "all caps on/off" - turn caps lock on or off
    "smiley" or "smiley face" or "smile face" - :-)
    "frowny" or "frowny face" or "frown face" - :-(

    I just wanted to point out with folks having trouble with Siri understanding them. Siri learns your accent, dialect, how you say things, etc. It learns and adapts. Some things take a while like my mothers name is Dawn, which can be pronounced like Don or Dawwwn or like break of Dawn. Took a while but Siri learned what I was saying. You can tell Siri to call you whatever you like and if you haven't programmed anything like Mother, Father, Girlfriend, Wife etc. Just tell Siri Julie is my wife and it will remember, etc. Basically Siri takes some time but as it gets more educated from what you teach it, it comes closer to 100% accurate on what you say. I don't think we have even began to scratch the surface with this technology.

    Me - I need to hide a body
    Siri - What kind of places are you looking for
    Mines
    Resevoirs
    Can't remember the rest but gave me 5 ideas to hide a body, lol. Someone with frontal lobe issues did some of the Siri programming, lol


    Me - Are you still in Beta
    Siri - No Comment

    Me - Are you still in Beta
    Siri - I can't answer that

    On a serious note. Is there any commands that are actually useful that anyone has discovered besides the normal playing around.

    I like the feature of being able to program family and names for instance.

    What I have programmed as Home is my grandmothers number. In Contacts its titled home. I have Siri programmed to call my grandmother or from what I call her which is "Mimi". So I have 3 different names to call 1 contact.

    Just to add to what mustang put, saying:

    "Quotation marks" works, as does "open parenthesis" and "close parenthesis." This dictation feature is nothing short of astounding.
