    Apple should allow iPhone 4S with Siri to communicate with each other. This would be mind blowing. For example, If I ask Siri to 'find a time John Doe and I can meet' and it will search your calendar, then cross check over the network with his calendar to calculate an open time in your schedules. This would obviously only work if both parties have Siri but that would be really cool. There are endless things this can open doors to.

    Wow that would be really neat. I'd also like an ability to force it into a constant listening mode, so I could give it commands without having to open my iPhone. If I had a real assistant, all I would need to do is call his/her name. Naturally, it'd have to work with only your own voice otherwise saying "Siri..." in a crowded environment would activate everyone's Siri.

    It will open a can of worms on privacy issues.

    If everyone's Siri is connected to one big network, then Apple could get live traffic information via the speed (from GPS) of every iPhone owner who's driving on each road.

    What exactly do people define as being part of Siri? I mean, cross-checking two people's calendars to find a common opening is simple technology. Siri is more about the natural language interface to these things that are actually powered by other technology behind the scenes. To say that "everyone's Siri is connected to a big network" doesn't really make sense to me.

    The word Siri is becoming the blanket term for the artificial intelligence on the phone. It doesn't just refer to the contextual algorithms anymore, it basically refers to an imaginary person, doing things for you in the software.

    Not sure how useful it'll be in protecting you. Unless it feeds you escape routes through a bluetooth headset or something a la Matrix.

    Well, your friend wouldn't even need Siri for that to work. You just need access to his calendar. If his calendar is public or shared with you, then Siri should be able to cross-reference his calendars and yours to find time when you both are free.

    If Siris can communicate if a grp of iPhone 4s are together , they'll probably start planning for world dominance soon
