Say what you will about Siri. The digital assistant may get some directions wrong every now and then, but that doesn't mean it's good for nothing. If you're one of the many who have lost faith in Siri, you need to read this amazing story.
A mother from Australia named Stacy Gleeson was able to use Siri to help save her daughter's life.
When her one-year-old suddenly stopped breathing, Gleeson did what any mother would do: She dropped everything and rushed to help her. But 'dropping everything' included her phone, which meant she couldn't call for help.
Fortunately, Gleeson remembered that Siri was voice activated. She began yelling "Hey Siri" at her phone, which prompted Siri to become active. She then asked Siri to call an ambulance, and soon medical help was on its way.
This story goes to show that even though Siri has been around for several years now, many people don't realize how they can use this technology to make their lives simpler. Apple is expected to announce big changes to Siri at the annual World Wide Developer conference this month. And it's even rumored that Siri may be making her way into homes throughout the country, if Apple is indeed releasing a product similar to Amazon Echo.
