    After having used my Mac for a whole, I realized that I actually need Siri to help me open apps and whatnot on my computer. I have two questions.

    Is there currently a mod that can put Siri on my Mac?

    When is Siri officially coming to Mac OS?

    You currently can't get Siri legally on the Mac. But I actually read some rumours on some tech site that it was found to be possibly coming in a later update to OSX. We'll see. I think it may eventually be on everything. That would be kinda cool for some things.

    Probably on 10.9.
    But there are voice controls now, they are under the accessibility Preference pane now.
    You can also download a new voice to mimic Siri Located under Dictation & Speech but it's a 400 MB+ Download.

    I am actually pretty sure 10.9 will have Siri for the following reason, the iMac already has more than one Microphone needed for Siri to work well.(Noise cancelling)

    I already have Siri telling me when my battery is running low. Siri could be much better than it is. They said the next update will have Siri.

    I really hope they have something better in this.

    But you can get it illegally, I would really like her to be opening some webpages for me.
