Tech Tip Tues - Oops, I guess Tech Tip Wednesday :)

You can't get the Siri App for the iPhone yet, but you can submit your info and get contacted when the beta version launches this summer before it goes public. It sounds like a really cool and helpful app and I can't wait to try it out. Here's the description of the app from the company that makes it:

Siri is a Virtual Personal Assistant - a new way to interact with the Internet on your mobile phone. Like a real assistant, Siri helps you get things done. You interact with Siri by just saying, in your own words, what you want to do. You can ask Siri to find a romantic place for dinner, and get reservations for Saturday night. You can discover things to do over the weekend, get tickets to the movies, or call a cab when you’re out on the town. You don't have search through a bunch of web pages, following links and hunting down facts. Siri does all the work giving you the information you need at your fingertips.

TechCrunch also did an early review of it, if you want to read more. Late in the day, I also found video demo of Siri online from the Wall Street Journal D7 Tech Conference. After watching the video, I want to try it even more

I try to spend some time each week reading magazines, tech blogs, newspapers online (New York Times being my favorite) to find helpful websites, iPhone apps, trends that can help me to thrive and be more efficient. Try taking just 5 minutes each day to do it and you will be shocked at all the cool and useful stuff you will find.
