    If you're cooling fans are on a little higher than normal, and you activate Diction, the fans will quiet down as you talk, and then resume to its previous speed.

    I don't know why, but stuff like this says "Steve Jobs" like nothing else. Such an interesting feature that probably isn't needed, but is nevertheless cool.

    Obviously this is so the fan noise doesn't get in the way of the accuracy of the dictation but yes, this does seem rather nice and 'Steve Jobs'-like.

    This was discussed on another thread a while ago. When the fans are at max RPM, starting dictation will not slow down your fans. ML assumes that ou need the cooling more than the increased accuracy.

    Very true. I wonder if there is a fail safe to prevent that?

    Ironically, many Mercedes-Benz vehicles do that as well. The W211 212 as well as the W220 and W221 S-classes will lower the climate control fan speed while speaking commands, and resume the speed when completed. Also ironic that he had a high level of respect for Mercedes-Benz engineering.
