    expand what siri can do world wide, finding places etc
    because in NZ she's kind of useless, its still good. but given what she can do in the USA,

    also expand what devices she can work on
    ie ipad, iPod touch, maybe iPhone 4(know this will get me voted down, just a idea)

    All I'm hoping for in regards to Siri is hardware controls.

    "Turn Bluetooth on"
    "Take a picture"
    "Make the screen brighter"

    I wouldn't be surprised if they did more with it though. I also wouldn't be surprised if it found its way onto the new iPad.

    API would be nice for developers.

    Do you mean for Siri to not pronounce any vowels?

    Location services in UK and I would be happy (or location services for everyone to be fair!)

    So annoying this hasn't been implemented yet and is Siri's biggest drawback to me.

    I would like Siri to "start" more functions. For me in particular it would be nice if she could start movies. I also just thought wouldn't it be great if while you ask her to search a song if there was a matching song available in iTunes Siri would ask "Would you like to purchase this song?" and then you answer yes or no. I think that would be cool.

    Looks like they decided to copy Windows Phone 7's "Local Scout" feature.

    Looks like iOS 6 is gonna be as disappointing as expected. I hate to say it, but... I WANT STEVE JOBS BACK :(

    Yes, but it seems to lack...knowledge, but this may be due to Yelp which I believe is what Siri leverages.

    Ireland? Is it included?

    I mean we have an Apple HQ, but no Apple stores and im guessing we wont get Siri location support :( :( I can't even get local weather here.

    Give me a break - look at the new MBP retina. 2 TB ports, 2 USB 3.0 ports, one HDMI port. If steve were alive, he would say NO.

    iOS 6.0 with SIRI voice control will be awesome. Who needs to tap on crap when you can just say it.

    It will be so great in the new 2013 cars.

    You may find it disappointing. But I actually liked everything I seen today. Just because Apple didn't cater to you doesn't mean iOS 6 was a flop. Maybe Android has what you are looking for.
