What Siri was going to be before it was acquired by Apple was a voice activated way of interacting with a whole host of web services out there, like getting movie tickets from fandango, reservations from open table, etc. I think Apple will eventually get there, but it seems to be happening slower than I thought it would. It should really be my personal assistant.

Siri already talks to Open Table, and fandango can't be far behind with all the movie stuff you can do with Siri already.

Very interesting look at Siri's potential (via everyone's favorite Gruber): http://counternotions.com/2012/11/12/siri-future/

I sincerely doubt it. Then again, my standards for voice activated computer assistant is hardened by Star Trek since childhood - and nothing short of true AI will probably ever get there.
