Apple Buys a Start-Up for Its Voice Technology
"Siri, a start-up based in San Jose, Calif., describes itself as a virtual personal assistant for the iPhone and the iPod Touch. For example, Siri users can speak commands like find a table for two at 9 tonight or send a taxi to my house; using GPS and speech-recognition technology, the application translates the commands and uses search algorithms to find answers. For results, Siri worked with several companies, including Citysearch, OpenTable and Taxi Magic.
"An Apple spokesman, Steve Dowling, declined to comment on the specifics of the Siri deal. Apple buys smaller companies from time to time but doesn't comment on products or plans, he said."
