Siri allows you to coordinate your activities with restaraunts, local events and more just by talking to your phone. This is a free app which you can grab from the App Store right now. If you’re a busy person who has things to do, Siri may well be the answer you’ve been looking for. You ask – and Siri will DO. Forget clicking a hundred links in your browser to accomplish something.

Siri will automatically identify your location through GOPS, then search its partners including OpenTable, MovieTickets, StubHub, CitySearch and TaxiMagic. The app is free, but Siri gets affiliate fees every time you buy something or make a reservation through the app.

In addition to helping you do things, it also can be used to set reminders. Tell Siri to remind you by email that you have a doctor’s appointment this week, and it will do the rest.

Not only is this app fun and useful, it’s also on the cutting edge of voice technology. Siri is building variations on a technology developed by nonprofit research-and-development company SRI International, which several years ago led a $200 million research project on artificial intelligence, funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

Siri… you have to talk to it to believe it.
