If you have in iPhone, or don't live under a rock, then you probably know about Siri, after all she even has her own parody video (or two*). So, could your virtual assistant actually make you better? Or, at least make you seem better? Of course she can. If you let her she can make you a superstar at the office, and at home.
Working Faster with Dictation
Siri is always ready and wiling to take dictation for you, and that means that your emails and reports just got a lot easier to get done quickly in places you might not have done them before. So if you want to get your work done faster at times like your commute (thanks to speaker mode or the Bluetooth headset) then you will be in good stead with Siri.
More Texts Per Minute for A Seriously Strong Social Life
Whether you are setting up a date, making plans with the boys or checking in with the family you will find that you can do it a lot faster by making Siri send the message. After all, the more you use her the more she learns about the people in your life and who you want when you ask her to text Mom.
Never Miss a Deadline, Forget an Important Date or Leave Something Behind
Siri lets you add reminders for all kinds of things, big and small. Whether you need to remember to pick up your favorite shirt at the cleaners on Saturday, get on Xbox Live for that Call of Duty marathon with your little brother, or a certain special date then Siri can help you to keep it all in hand, literally. Since she can store dates all year round too, you won't have to worry about updating it every week or month. Perfect for the man on the go.
Use Her to Get Out of A Social Obligation
One great trick is to set up an update for a party or other event that you don't want to go to then set a reminder, or you can have Siri set an alarm so that you can fake a call, or an emergency, that will get you out of the obligation as gracefully as possible. Trust me, it works for women on bad dates all of the time.
See, your technological slave will keep you up to date and make you better than you have ever been before.
