Siri is the innovative personal assistant that Apple introduced when it released the iPhone 4S with iOS 5 in 2011. Since then, Apple has incorporated Siri into the 2 latest iPad generations as well as the iPhone 5 and expanded Siri’s capabilities with iOS 6. Using Siri is much more natural than any other digital assistants of the past. For the most part, you can use normal language to make requests such as “Wake me up at 7am” and Siri will respond with “Your alarm is set for 7am”. However, to harness the full potential of what Siri has to offer, it is super helpful to learn how to talk to Siri. If you know what to say, you will be able to save yourself a ton of time on everyday iPhone functions.
One of my favorite blogs that I check nearly daily is The Unofficial Apple Weblog (Tuaw.com). They provide helpful resources on everything Apple as well as keeping people up to date on the Apple rumor-mill – trying to figure out what products Apple is working on and when they will be released. One of their Authors is Erica Sadun (check out a post she put together on What you Can Say to Siri in iOS 6). Because of the extensive capabilities of Siri, Erica teamed up with Steve Sande (another author at Tuaw.com) to write a book on Siri. It is called “Talking to Siri: Learning the Language of Apple’s Intelligent Assistant”.
In my email conversations with Erica, she has offered me the ability to offer you a 30% discount off of her book (either hardcopy or eBook). The book is published by Que Publishing. So, all you need to do to qualify for the discount is to head over to the Que Publishing website (Que Publishing) and enter the discount code “SIRI” at checkout. If your device has Siri and you want to learn how to better utilize this intelligent assistant, then you don’t want to miss this opportunity to get this book at this price!
