Siri and milk

The folks behind Remember the Milk, a popular task management service, have integrated the iPhone 4S‘s voice assistant Siri with the app’s calendar.

The process of adding a new task requires no additional steps — simply tell Siri to remind you of something, and that task will be automatically created in Remember the Milk as well.

To be able to do this, you need to have an account with Remember the Milk and go through a short setup process explained here.

This latest integration is another sign that Siri might revolutionize the way we interact with our phones.

Sure, voice commands and tasks existed before Siri — even on the iPhone — but thanks to Apple’s enormous reach and influence, as well as some of Siri’s advanced and fun features, we’re seeing a lot of buzz around Apple’s take on speech recognition and artificial intelligence.
