Do you have Siri or a “talking” to you feature on your mobile? Here’s some tips and ideas on how to use:

1.       Safe Texting … If you are driving, out walking—you name it; you can send a quick text message using hands-free technology.

2.       Get Help … ask questions, do research  with your voice.

3.       Call people … say the name and your phone searches your contact base and dials for you.

4.       Use as a Calculator … wow … let Siri do the math for you. Kind of cool.

5.       What’s the Weather … get the weather wherever you are. Great if you are traveling and you need a quick report.

6.       Sports Updates … Ok, Ok, tis a stretch … but Siri can update you on an ongoing game as you drive or wherever.

7.       Dictate Away for the Multitasker … hey, who doesn’t like to talk while cleaning stuff up? Isn’t that when an awesome idea drops in. Let Siri take the notes for you and you do two things at once.  I like it.
