I think the ability to speak to computers will be incredibly valuable once it reaches the point of ambient availability. No need to push a button or carefully phrase a question--just address it by name whenever you need something, and it understands and responds or takes an action for you.

You can speak in any situation, including running, driving, walking down the street, chatting with friends, etc. We know how to talk and do other things at the same time. But we can only look at one thing at a time. This is why Google Glasses are not going to take over the world.
