Creating Events Using Siri


Siri is magical and fun when it works…

If you’re on the go or just want an easier way to add events to your Calendar app, Siri will happily get the job done for you. Creating an event is super simple and only takes a few seconds.

  1. Hold down the Home button to activate Siri.
  2. Tell Siri what you’d like her to schedule. For example: “Schedule a conference call with Phil tomorrow at 9AM.”
  3. Wait for Siri to show you the Calendar widget and ask for confirmation.

If there’s any ambiguity about what you said, or Siri is uncertain, it will ask you to clarify. For example, if you ask to set up an appointment “tomorrow”, and it’s near midnight, Siri will ask you to specify the date to make sure the appointment is set up properly.

The Clear App Is Actually Good…

Clear for iPhone (Coming Soon!) from Realmac Software on Vimeo.

Most of the time when the technorati slobber over something it turns out to be rather lame. But this time they got it right.

The biggest advantages to Clear over just about any other app I have used: it is concise and fast. You can’t get buried in the details with the app because there are no details to get lost in. You can actually only enter in a task that is under 30 characters long. Clear forces you to be clear.

Clear is the fastest way to enter in new tasks on my iPhone: swipe down/pinch open/tap to create a new item, start typing, pull down to create another, type, pulldown… and so on. It’s fast — faster than OmniFocus.

What To Wear If You Want To Play With Your iPhone In A Snow Storm

Mujjo touchscreen gloves typing 1000 2

This is what the well dressed tech hipster is wearing this winter.

Winter is finally in full effect here in Toronto, with a couple of very cold days in the past week that gave me the perfect opportunity to test a pair ofMujjo touchscreen gloves. These gloves are woven throughout with silver-coated conductive fibers to allow them to work with capacitive screens, like the ones on your iPhone and iPad, and their unique design makes them better suited than most for the task.
