Dictation is also very, very fast. I read the first two paragraphs of a fairly long patter song (Modern Major General) and it took maybe 1 second to think and then spit out the results (which were almost perfect). Usually it takes dictation at least a few seconds longer to do that many words.
the past week or so it seems all around more stable for me. 100% of my request have worked as opposed to the usual 85 to 90%.
