How To Get Sports Scores With Siri

Written by admin. Posted in Sports

Attention sports fans, get your iOS device out. Siri is an ace at getting you the latest sports scores of your favorite team. Currently Siri can get scores for NFL football, college football, basketball, baseball, (international) soccer, and hockey. Your iPhone assistant will give you the scores, rosters, and stats you need – including player stats. Missed a game for a reason, forgot the name of the player of the season? Don’t sweat, Siri will help you keep score.

Checking Sports Scores

To get game scores, sometimes it’s wise to add the city too (NY Giants, SF Giants). It’s also possible to ask Siri for scores and standings in soccer leagues.

Tell Siri:

“Hey how about those Cowboys?”
“How did the Yankees do last week?”
“Give me an update on NFL.”
“Give me an update the American League”
“Give me an update on college football.”
“Show me the standings in the Premier League.”
“How is Barcelona doing?”

Check Out Game Rosters

Whenever you ask Siri when or what time a game will be, it will show you a game roster.

Tell Siri:

“Who do the Cowboys play next?”
“When will the next San Francisco Giants game be?”
“What time will the Giants game be tonight?”
“When is the next 49ers game?”

Check Out Team Stats

Tell Siri:

“How many games did the Giants lose this year?”
“Who plays in the New York Yankees?”
“Are there any injuries for the New York Giants?”

Check Out Player Stats

When asking Siri for player stats, note that you can often follow up on the question you started out with.

Tell Siri:

“Who is Eric Chavez?”
“How old is Eric Chavez?”
“How tall is Lionel Messi?”
“How many times did he score?”

How To Search The Web With Siri

Written by admin. Posted in Search, Web Search

Instead of using Safari on iOS 6, you can search the web by voice with Siri. By using the right commands, searching can be done on multiple search engines – even more than Safari currently offers. Depending on how you ask Siri to do a web search, it will search on Google, Bing, Yahoo, Wikipedia and Wolfram Alpha. What more could you ask for? Making Siri Search on Twitter works too. Have a look at some tips on how to search the web with Siri below.

Searching On Google

To make Siri search on Google:

Tell Siri:

“Search for iOS 6.”
“Google Shakespeare.”
“Do a search for the new iPad.”
“Search the web for the iPhone 5.”

Searching Images On Google

Siri can search for images on Google too.

Ask Siri:

“Search for Megan Fox on Google Images.”
“Search for Megan Fox images on Google.”
“Google a picture of The Black Eyed Peas.”

Searching On Yahoo

If you need to specifically search on Yahoo’s search engine:

You say:

“Search Yahoo for Michael Jackson.”
“Do a Yahoo search for Barack Obama.”
“Search for movie reviews on Yahoo.”
“Search for a picture of Justin Bieber on Yahoo.”

Searching On Bing

Yes, you can search the web with Siri on Bing too!

You say:

“Bing Bill Gates”.

Searching On Wolfram Alpha

Wolfram Alpha is deeply integrated with Siri. In iOS 6, there is no more need to initiate a search by starting your query with ‘Wolfram.’ Siri senses what your asking for and as soon as your question gets the least bit scientific, Wolfram Alpha will return the answer.

To make Siri search on Wolfram Alpha,

Ask Siri:

“What is the distance from the Earth to The Moon?”
“What notes are in the C major scale?”
“Who was the fourth president of the United States?”
“How many calories are in a bag of potato chips?”
“How much is a 1% tip on a 65 Dollar bill?”
“How much for a gallon of gas in New York City?”

Searching On Wikipedia

When the answers Wolfram Alpha returns get a little too scientific and you’d like a longer read on a subject, you can make Siri do a Wikipedia search.

You tell Siri:

“Search Wikipedia for the speed of light.”
“Search for the speed of light on Wikipedia.”
