    With the new hacked Siri commands, it wont be long before all of this comes out.

    More reliable.

    But above else, other applications can hook themselves into SIRI.

    Toggling Bluetooth and WIFI - plus other settings would be great also.

    Sounds more like a human.

    There are text-to-speech solutions out there that sounds a lot better. It seems like Apple put a robotic voice on Siri on purpose...

    and put it on other iOS devices. The entire thing is cloud based, there is no technical reason why they can't put Siri on other iOS devices. Of course, this is one of their major selling point for the 4S, but I hope they will make it available on all iOS devices in iOS 6 (or whenever the 4S hype starts to die down)

    Just noticed she doesn't say "Sorry, I am having trouble connecting to the network." anymore for me. Now she says "I am still thinking." or "Sorry for the delay". Looks like it won't time out anymore when network traffic is busy.

    My biggest disappointment in Siri was learning that most of it runs "in the cloud." My biggest use-case for it was going to be dictation. I honestly thought that they had managed to get a voice dictation engine running on the A5 directly.

    I take road-trips frequently, and frequently I hit areas with very spotty coverage for long stretches...areas where both data and voice don't really work so well. But I can get an occasional text message through. Problem is, of course, that I can't read and respond to texts while I'm driving. That requires pulling over. So I want to be able to dictate text messages and have the incoming texts read back to me over the car stereo.

    Of course, those same stretches where the only thing that really works is text messaging will prevent Siri from working, since she needs a reliable data connection to Apple's server farm to actually work. So, useless in this scenario.

    So my biggest hope is that Apple will actively work to try to move more and more of Siri's functionality to the local handset, and out of the cloud. Especially dictation.

    Support for other countries (Right now Siri is crippled outside of US)

    3rd-Party App integration, but I have a feeling we won't see that until iOS 6.

    Siri should be able to do EVERYTHING on my phone that I could normally do via the touch screen.
