    What commands do you think will be added? Will there be a chance to "add" words to the server so she understand you better?

    The more you talk to Siri the more she'll understand you.

    Apple.com is the proof. From here:

    "And the more you use Siri, the better it will understand you. It does this by learning about your accent and other characteristics of your voice."


    On the flip side, you can make Siri forget what it has learned about your voice.

    "If you like, you can reset what Siri has learned about your voice by turning Siri off and then back on in Settings > General > Siri."

    I think this is more likely to be an improvement based on the total user base on the server side i.e. the more everyone talks to Siri, the better the voice recognition will become.

    So the amount of times I asked "will there be a second season of the ringer on tv"

    and it coming back as ringo until I got it to say it is making a difference. Thats cool I love Siri as it means when Im walking to work I can still text and plan my lessons :)

    It appears that I'm both right and wrong but mostly wrong:

    http://www.apple.com/iphone/features/siri-faq.html - it could just be marketing guff of course.

    1)Must learn headline news and sports score command
    Imagine?
    "Give me top 5 headline news right now"
    Subsequent command from it's input from siri:
    "Give me detail for news XX"
    "What's the yankees score?"

    2)What's up w/ unnecessary contact to siri server when you want to do just 'call xx' or 'text xx' ??
    They should localize certain simple command so that siri will be part of everyday life(no more.. 'text gf'... pause... pause pause... "Having trouble connecting to internet).


    Otherwise, i love siri!!!

    Better recognizing ones voice/accent doesn't answer OP's first question as far as added commands.

    Unless Apple allows 3rd party apps to access Siri, I don't see much being added to it's capabilities.

    A way to give you the score is to say, "Yahoo New York Yankees" and it will take you to the Yahoo search that has the best score system in the search. Try doing Yahoo + any football team and it will bring up last Sunday's score and who they're playing next week.

    settings adjustments would be neat! as one that often toggles services like Bluetooth on\off, a voice command would save a lot of digging around in settings.

    imagine: Bluetooth 'On'>connect to 'Pioneer'>play 'Eagles' :cool:

    Orrrrr...The scorecenter app (or any other sports score app) could have access to Siri and when you ask for the score of X Game, it pops open the app to the appropriate screen.

    The sky is the limit with Siri. Once developer API comes out then it will explode. Although I'm not comfortable with Siri's transcription ability to the point I won't check it before I send a text or email, but I imagine this will change in time.

    That's funny, cause the more I talk to my wife the less I understand her.

    Siri and Skynet both start with S...

    I personally want third party support for Siri so I can play spotify or pandora and go next track and it change the bleeding track :)
