  1. So wait, I thought the amazing thing about Siri is that it understands basic speech. So there is a book to “teach” you what you can say. That sounds a lot like voice commands to me. Guess the guy (as in one) developing Ask Ziggy is not that far behind. Vocabulary increases every couple weeks.

  2. LOL, how dumb can you be that requires you to need a “for dummies” book on voice commands?

    Q. How many dummies does it take to use Siri? A. Apparently one too many!
