Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - COMPUTING - BY TUSHAR KAN­WAR

Ah, Siri. The prom­ise of hav­ing your own full-time flunky, ready to per­form me­nial tasks that you don’t have time for, is a big part of the ap­peal of the iphone 4S, and one that has cap­tured the public imag­i­na­tion like few other phone fea­tures have. Is it wrong to ex­pect such slav­ish at­ten­tive­ness from your other plat­forms? Here’s how you can get Siri-like fea­tures on the plat­form of your choice.

Be warned though that while talk­ing to your gad­gets might still be in its in­fancy, the fu­ture, where we will be voice-com­mand­ing, even con­vers­ing with them, isn’t that far away.
