The big announcement from Apple today was not the expected iPhone 5 announcement, rather the announcement of the iPhone 4S. The changes aren’t huge, but it does include a new 8MP camera with new optics now shoots 1080p HD video, a dual-core A5 chip to deliver more power, and probably its biggest new feature is the intergration of Siri, which essentially acts as a voice activated assistant…

“Now you can use your voice to use your iPhone. Just talk to Siri as you would to a person: “Do I need an umbrella?” or “Any great burgers around here?” or “Where’s the closest ATM?” Siri not only understands what you say, it knows what you mean.1 It figures out the right apps to use to find the right answer. Then, just like a personal assistant, it answers you. Siri makes phone calls, sends messages, schedules meetings, sets reminders, and more. How much more? Just ask, and Siri tells you that, too.”
