Siri. Your intelligent assistant.
Siri is the intelligent assistant that helps you get things done, just by asking. Talk to Siri as you would to a person: Ask "Do I need an umbrella?" or "Did the Giants win last night?" or "What time is the barbecue on Sunday?"

Then, just like a personal assistant, Siri provides you with the information you need.
