    Siri can't mess with system settings, and that's a good thing...accidental or mis-pronounced words could lead to issues.

    Issues? They would be corrected with an easy, "are you sure you want to turn WiFi off?" question.

    Apple don't want you to turn wifi, 3G, bluetooth, etc. off.

    I disagree. Siri should be able to toggle settings and launch apps. This is not "dangerous" by any means.

    ...or changing the brightness, using 'Do Not Disturb,' or changing the volume.

    Heh, they just don't want Siri doing that. They're not ok with changing brightness (that's why there is an auto brightness setting...), but they're ok with you setting DND for every night. And the volume has hardware volume buttons.

    A good assistant would know where I am and what resources I have at my disposal. So I don't worry about trivialities.
