The Siri update is next up. Apple showed an example of what it can do for sports addicts: latest batting average, current scores and standing, and she even answers question.

Another new feature is called Eyes Free. Apple's working this with car manufactures to let you use Siri from the steering wheel. Does not light up the screen, just uses spoken alerts.

Plus Siri is coming to the iPad.
