A Tale of 2.5 Phones, IV
The topic for this blog will be the Siri and iCloud services.  From the start, I need to be clear that these are why I found a way to get an iPhone, when I still love my EVO 3D.  My final question for the last blog will be, do these services overcome the features and functionality that I love on my EVO....
