Siri can now remotely control your car: start and lock it, pop your trunk

That humble virtual assistant Siri always willing to help might be useful for telling the weather, setting appointments, alarms and a couple of other things, but given the fact that we’re living in a connected world…

If Siri was for ICS then you would say (Wow,, look at this..can the iPhone do that??)!!

No doubt, Siri is going to take Artificial Intelligence to next level.

Idd. Siri has also a little friend (mentor), Eliza (40-50 years old). Also a software designed for Artificiel Intelligence. But failed the test.

This is pretty cool feature to have. Seems useless when the remote does the same thing, but imagine if your keys were locked in your car...

Its not about a Car or Keys.
Its about What SIRI Can Do.
Its about How SIRI Can Be Used to control your Electronics Devices.

There is already a Viper app that allows you to do all this. I think it'd be much easier to just use the app then have to tell Siri.

I think it's easier to press the home button and speak than to open an app!

Except I'd rather subtly n silently do it then have to speak out loud.

N. Reynolds... They mentioned the other app in the article. The App is the Viper Remote Start application. You have to buy the app and also by equipment to connect to your car's ignition system.
This article is simply to show you the uses of SIRI. My neighbor has the app and has to access the app on his device to use the functions. However, according to this article the user would simply need to say 2 words.
In case you didn't get it, they are stating that soon you will be able to access certain functionality of third party applications by speaking to SIRI.

Not useful because it's Apple. Can you come out the closet already and troll in the open?

IPhone fans are so sensitive. I was paying the dumb phone a compliment, but as usual you guys are even taking my compliment as an insult. Grow a pair girls!

Apple = Skynet
Next is Siri having control over your bank account, then a decade later control over military.
Viruses can easily hack Siri, everyone should be warned!
I don\'t believe in giving a cell program that much power.

if siri is for ICS,google might have exposed the capabilities of wonderful technology to all(just imagine what the developers have done with that technology),not unlike Apple crippling the capabilty of SIRI..
the linguistic capabilities of google voice search are far more superior than SIRI,i dont think so it might not be difficult for Goole to extend the capability of voice search to match that of SIRI.

The linguistic capabilities of android are FAR BELOW that of Siri.
