    I hate searching youtube with the remote. I could be ignorant and there may be a better way. Feel free to educate me.

    Using the remote app on your iPhone or iPad (if you have either) is much easier. You can also pair a Bluetooth keyboard.

    ^i agree. I think Siri on the TV would not be as useful as some might think.

    Yep, I am surprised Apple is going to let Microsoft beat them to this. Siri on Apple TV or using her on a mobile device to control Apple TV would be quite nice. Of course the Xbox One system is nearly a full fledged desktop so voice tech has more of a use.

    I dunno about voice control but MS is already years ahead with Kinect. Kinect has potential way beyond the PC. I'm surprised Apple was snoozing on that one.

    using Siri to control through the remote app has some potential.
