    If you think that Siri is in beta, watch this video that shows Microsoft's TellMe (their voice recognition software) compared to Siri.

    Very nice. Never realized how difficult voice recognition was. Obviously Microsoft's back end is still in alpha.

    Microsoft is heading on the right direction. Pretty soon we'll see that phone on the sex offenders list.

    You have to also realize that MS hasn't taken accents into account. Their version is only for people with non-regional diction. That being said, it shows you how little they think about things when implementing them. This is why things like Vista and Win ME were so crappy. No forethought, just a lot of hindsight. This is why MS has been losing ground for a while now. You can't keep making every other version of your product decent, based on the complaints of the version before it.

    I don't hold it against MS too much. As I understand it Google did that free 411 service to develop their voice recognition tech and Nuance also has a huge history. I assume it really takes this kind of live and long term development with real voices to get this type of tech to a good level of accuracy.

    I do like the interactive nature of Siri where it sensibly continues to prompt you without you needing to click anything. I think some 3rd party devs have or are working towards a similar function in Android. This is a very smart evolution to the next level. :)

    Just like everything else, they need to copy Apple.

    I didn't realize that the Siri in Australia was different sounding from America and the UK. I thought there were only two Siri voices.

    relax, mitchell.
    There's voice recognition, then there's Siri. Do your homework.

    Benny is right. Siri isn't really 'voice recognition'. It is A.I.

    It's like saying, "Apple wasn't first with a touchscreen".

    I know!
    I have to say it over, and over, and over again. I don't even get paid for this.

    AI? Hardly. Although somewhat cool and a little useful....It's capabilities are less than what was available 8 months or more ago on Android. I understand that those that have not used a current, top end Android might not get that though. Make an appointment?...sure....cancel one?....well no, can't do that. Set an alarm?....sure no problem...cancel one?....well no.

    But it knows how much wood a woodchuck could chuck.
