iPhone 4S – Siri

I’m not completely sold on how useful this will be. But I’m looking forward to the big boss getting hers so I can play with the Siri app. This looks pretty damn awesome. If it does a HAL voice, I may have to upgrade early 😉 Check out more information about Siri on Apple’s website.
