Just like a real assistant, Siri understands what you say, accomplishes tasks for you and adapts to your preferences over time.Today, Siri can help you find and plan things to do. You can ask Siri to find a romantic place for dinner, tell you what’s playing at a local jazz club or get tickets to a movie for Saturday night.Siri is young and, like a child taking its first steps, may be awkward at times. Siri may occasionally misunderstand things you ask it to do even within its range of understanding.Nonetheless, Siri will improve quickly by getting to know you better and understanding a broader set of tasks. In fact, right now, Siri’s learning how to handle reminders, flights stats and reference questions. Our vision is that, over time, you’ll trust Siri to manage many personal details in your life - from recommending a wine you might enjoy to managing your to do list.The current version of Siri is built for iPhone 3GS and requires iPhone OS 3.1 or later. Soon, Siri will run on the iPod Touch, iPhone 3G and additional mobile platforms, as well.
This app actually sounds pretty cool. I would probably use this a lot. Too bad I refuse to get an iphone. Perhaps if it ever comes out on Android maybe i'll pick up a nexus one :-)
Yeah it does sound useful, but as I said before it's not the app for that profile. It is the 4-5-6-7-14 apps for that thing that kind of turns me off. I like to have differing options yeah I use several differing ones on Firefox. They have a lot of apps or add on's or etc etc, but not as many as the App store. I don't know how much I would like surfing through over a million apps, that seems to far to me.
I have (though haven't really tried) Dragon Dictation for my iPod Touch. (One of the problems is that I seldom use the microphone-enhanced earbuds included with the device.) I heard, though, that it doesn't do the work on your phone/player, but uploads the waveforms to a website, analyzes them there, and returns the results.
This is a pretty good way of doing things-- IF you have a constant and reliable network connection. The Touch has no 3G but rather Wifi, which I can get at home and at the Reading Terminal Market. (No McDonald's yet; I imagine that when they talked about installing Wifi in their restaurants, they were just making a "Jay Leno promise.") I have to wonder whether the Siri ap does the same thing, which would make it more capable but something you couldn't rely on if you spent any amount of time in dead zones.

just downloaded it xD, the voice recognition is pretty good, it recognized 99% of random stuff i said to it xD. they should have a future that reads back to you what u said so you can control it with a headphone and not just the screen. i said find deli and it came up with some but not small delis like the one on my block. mcdonalds is considered a deli? xD
