    Pretty sure it won't do that (yet) otherwise they would have demoed it...

    Siri will seach the web, so I bet you will at least get a link for the Macrumors forums.

    I hope one day there is an API for devs to be able to have Siri open their app and perform actions based on certain commands. So not only open up the ESPN Sportscenter app, but also go to a specific section of the app. For instance, "Siri, open up ESPN Sportcenter app and give me tomorrow's college football schedule."
