I have used iPhones since all the way back to my early Blackberry days, but just now hooked up with Siri.  

Was I shy or just a Luddite?  No matter, we had no intercourse until my Apple computer Guru Steve Levy recently introduced us. 

He asked if I used Siri and I said I did not.  He then patiently explained what I’ve been missing and proceeded to share her tricks:

Hey Siri turn on the flashlight. 

Hey Siri tell me when 30 minutes have passed.  

Hey Siri wake me up at 4:15.  (She did and averted my missing my plane.)

She is tireless and willing to please.  

Try her, you’ll like it!

    The only way I know to turn on the 'light on my new (hand-me down) iPhone. When I used it Tuesday eve, it surprised my younger basketball player friend, Shawn, who I'll get to a Gotham function soon enough (He'll be at Citifield on 7/3.)

    Watch the news in the next few days There will be a big scandal. It seems that Siri and Alexa are having an illicit affair. Amazon tried to quash it but Siri forgot to turn off location services

    AI - harbinger of things to come. Watch the movie “Her”? In general, I think anything that makes life better, more fun and enriching is good.
    Dictating to text makes life so much easier too. (Maybe a holdover from my dictation days as an attorney.) We walk around whispering into our phones. The kids call Paul “Secret Service Man”. Lol.

    I have a Samsung (per work) and rarely use the verbal assistance. But I probably should.

    Siri and I don't get along. She never understands me and comes out with the oddest things at strange times. Two days ago she asked me for my mother's maiden name which truly freaked me out.

    There’s no maybe in “ maybe I’m a Luddite .” Secret Service man and I have known that from the Get Go . That being said we have Alexa. Every night at dinner Diane starts an argument with her . Better than with me I guess . “ Alexa ? Play Pandora , classical piano music ! “ “ Ok did you mean Frank Zappa vocals ? Then the fight starts . The volume raises and off we go . It usually ends up with me saying “ Alexa , STFU . Diane and Alexa usually consume too much Chardonnay before dinner so hence the friction . And Alexa listens in to our conversations .and shares them with our IPhones . And our IPhones share with Alexa . RUFKM ? Alexa will have a short life in our kitchen . I have a hard time accepting the absurd . Call me a Luddite but don’t call me late for dinner .

    I use Siri; but never thought of having him (mine is a he) remind me of things. That's for the suggestion!
