    Check this video out, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mNcnj2l6RE&feature=player_detailpage#t=244s. I couldn't have put it better myself.

    It's only a little mistake, but it really does need to be 99% accurate for this to not be annoying. If you're dictating a message in a car, where there is quite a bit of background noise, it needs to always be spot on as having to change any text using the keyboard will be frustrating and illegal. This guy pronounces S very clearly and is in very controlled quiet surroundings.

    Well that is why when you dictate it a text message, it repeats everything back to you before you send it.

    Something like ten years ago I bought a speech to text app, let's just say that it was some high quality family entertainment.
    Hope that things have greatly improved since then.

    I like how he attempts to keep a straight face after seeing the error, but then loses it for a few seconds at 4:32.
    You'd think Apple would put in some auto corrections for common phrases, apparently not.

    It's only a matter of time before someone puts up a damnyouautocorrect.com site for Siri, in fact somebody had registered a domain for it back in August on GoDaddy.

    Looks to me like Siri works pretty damn fantastically. Not sure why this guy looks so underwhelmed about it.
