iOS 6 hands-on: Siri has learned a lot in the last year

I’m using Siri a lot more frequently. Thanks to a bunch of additions and improvements, here are some of the ways she’s helping out now, and not just in the car. Siri understands sports now, and for someone like me who is a sports stat junky it’s been a bonanza of fun. Ask Siri, “What’s Dustin Pedroia’s batting average?” and she responds that he has a batting average of .293. Where Siri also comes in handy is when I want to know the score of a game. While watching the Patriots choke this Sunday, I was curious about the score of the Red Sox game. I asked Siri, “What’s the score of the Sox game?” and Siri responded that the [censored] Red Sox are losing 3-0 (extra emphasis mine; it’s been a trying year for the Sox).
