"Siri, Upgrade My Phone"

Preordered iPhone 4Ss. (Is that how you pluralize it?) My wife and I have regular gen 3 phones so it's time for an upgrade. We should get our phones... sometime next month. Backordered but better than standing in line. Because I know I'd not pick the trendy Woz line anyway.

One of the new features on the 4S is Siri, the voice-recognition assistant. This actually seems to be a potentially cool feature. (Plus you can also dictate documents, which has it's own potential for a writer on a long commute.)

Most impressively, it seems Apple engineers invested at least some time in giving Siri a sense of humor! Check it out.
