Siri is the kind of feature you would use for a while because you think it's "cool" but then completely forget about after you're finished showing off to people.

You should be able to sell it for more than that? An 8GB model brand new sells for $600 doesn't it?

There's a setting so it activates when you hold it near your ear for a few seconds, so it'll look like you're just on a phone call.

No, but that's true of past voice recognition software and only because it doesn't work well enough to be better than doing it normally. Siri's different, Siri's better.

Siri is the realization of many years of hardware/software advancements in real-language communication. It's also the "ultimate goal" of computer interaction by using natural language and receiving answers to almost any question. In other words, the game now is to "stump" Siri.

That's a good thing, though. Sort of like a miniature version of IBM's Watson super computer (I'd like to see how Siri does with Jeopardy questions.) In otherwords, what IBM did was only the beginning. What Siri is doing is a practical application of that thought process.

Exciting times ahead. Personal assistants will be integrated into all smart phones soon.

so Siri is basically your IRC chat robot with added speech recognition capability, that are technologies available since 10 years ago.

Speech recognition != natural language processing. Regular speech recognition is just a dictionary of common words that are compared with a simple algorithm, this is supposed to be far more complex.
