Siri is fun to play with – ask her what the meaning of life is some time – but I am still not sure “she” offers real, usable information that a quick internet search wouldn’t give me, and I wouldn’t have to repeat three times.

Insight into the food preferences of both you and your spouse, restaurants nearby and their table availability. The latter two are not as difficult, but insight would be an achievement that most men would like to possess on their own.
