Tiny thing, super handy.
Apple. I will give you serious money. If you replace Siri’s voice with Jarvis. Or Charlie Brown’s teacher.
So far, I can’t figure out how to make Siri roll a d20. However, Siri’s coin might occasionally fall into a crack.
I’m not sure how far back Siri’s been able to do this, but it’s not an iOS 7 addition. Siri can do it on my iOS 6 test device, too.

Apple hangs onto your Siri activity for quite a while, but creates a random number on its servers with which to associate all your activity. If you disable Siri, Apple deletes all that information immediately.
I agree with the ACLU lawyer Wired spoke to, Nicole Ozer: Apple should disclose this to users in its FAQ.
I can’t tell if Siri is mocking me or trying to sing along.
