Siri finds things close to you, sets up reminders and timers, shows you maps, and can provide a wide assortment of information. You can ask it things like, "What day of the week will New Years Eve be in 2055?" Yesterday I said, "Call the nearest Starbucks." And Siri said, "I found five Starbucks pretty close to you. Tap the one you want to call." The nearest one was at the top of the list, so I tapped it and the call was made automatically.
