Apple iPhone Siri Personal Assistant [allthingsd.com]
While many of the new features in the iPhone 4S had to do with hardware tweaks, the main feature of the phone could well be Siri.

Siri and which Apple bought last year, allows users to get a range of information just by asking their phone a question. On stage, Apple iOS head Scott Forstall demonstrated the app doing everything from findind directions, to getting stock quotes and currency conversions. Apple has also partnered with Yelp to grab and sort local information.

The Siri feature is activated in the new iPhone by pressing and holding the home button on the iPhone, or pressing and holding a button on a Bluetooth headset.

“It’s just that easy,” Forstall said. “You can ask so many questions of Siri.”
