A small team of experts in voice recognition technology is being put together by Apple to help the tech titan improve Siri; Apple has posted online job listings seeking more members for the team. Current members of the group all came from VoiceSignal Technologies, which was purchased by Nuance in 2007.

Wait.. which features in Siri aren't proprietary? Which features in ANY iproduct aren't proprietary?

Or maybe the editor means that in its origin, Siri was an independent project by an independent developer, which was later bought by Apple and made completely proprietary?

Difference being that Apple didn't buy these. If they had we would have had no Webkit, No Unix and no Wifi. Unless you owned an apple product... *shudders*..

yes the SIRI back scratcher. It combines Siri and the multimode vibrate support to give you the best back massage / scratch experance possible.

Apple scratch different
