    Small point, “many layers of complexity” is a silly thing to say. This has nothing to do with complexity.
    The phone itself has little to do with where the new software is housed.
    This has to do with people speaking through the phones into the massive server arrays that employ the rules of grammar and syntax.
    The only smart here is the software developers.

    I wonder if psychiatric help will be available for the phones that end up in the hands of people like George Bush or Sarah Palin.

    That’s not the kind of progress I need. To be honest, the idea of people talking with their phones makes me cringe…

    Me: Do you remember that hot chick I met at the bar last weekend?
    Phone: Yes. She was not that hot so I deleted her number so you couldn’t contact her when you sobered up.
    Me: Awsome thanks!!!!

    This is a wonderful talk about indexicals, semiotics, and the difficulties facing voice recognition software. If this is correct, I am amazed.

  16. ananiasacts says:

    Maybe women want a phone that listens to them, but I’m pretty sure most men would prefer a model that listens to whomever is trying to call them and saves them that trouble. Give me the phone I never have to talk to.
