Unless you live in Canada, where you can give your iPhone 4S
all the additional info in the universe and it still won't
be able to tell you anything about where you are, what businesses
and services are nearby, anything about the store you are
standing in front of (or the museum, or restaurant, or theater,
or national capital and heritage sites, or ... name it). Siri
won't recognize it. Or care.

Fortunately, I don't have "i" anything (a MacBook Pro doesn't
count). So it's not much of an issue.

Though, y'know, I am in the market for a smartphone/superphone,
and was ready to jump on the 4S. Instead, it'll be something
Android-ish. It might be interesting to discover if I even
need/want docs with that, or if it's pretty much self-docmenting...
likely the iPhone woulda been. :-)
