Siri creator: Apple will produce Siri-capable TVs by 2013

“Since the unveiling of its iPhone 4S back in October, Apple has received heaps of praise for one of its new features in particular: Siri,” Killian Bell reports for Cult of Mac.

“The digital assistant is by far the most impressive voice recognition service built into a mobile device, and it seems everyone has been blown away by it,” Bell reports. “What many of you may not know, however, is that Siri is one of the few Apple products that wasn’t created by the team in Cupertino.”

Bell reports, “Instead, Siri was created by Dag Kittlaus, a 34-year-old man from Norway, and it has made him a multimillionaire… In a profile by Norwegian publication E24!, Kittlaus revealed Siri won’t always be exclusive to the iPhone, claiming Apple ‘will produce TVs with Siri as an integral part of the package’ by 2013. Kittlaus won’t be there to develop those TVs, however, because he’s no longer with the company.”

  1. 2013?!!! Too. Long. Can’t. Wait.

    Reminds me of that song (daydreams off)…

    I want my…
    I want my…
    I want my Apple TV.
    Get your apps for nothing and your chicks for a fee.

  2. “Well, my strongest reaction came when I realized how sick he was, that he had not long to live. There I realized the job, we were together every day. My reaction to that was a lot stronger than I was prepared, it put me out properly. He is the inventor in history that changed the most, dozens of industries around the world is turned upside down.”

    This man worked for Steven for like under two years. When you read Isaacson’s book, bear in mind that the stories how tyrannical Jobs was come from like 25 years ogo. Jobs had colleagues that worked for him for decades and while they agreed to be brutally honest to each other, there obviously was never actual disrespect.

    And the earlier cases of Jobs’ tyranny were driven by his obsessive perfectionism. And, sometimes, these harsh cases were fair in terms of that these people whom Steven fired did not meet the needed level of perfectionism he required.

    1. They said EInstein was tyrannical too, in fact it’s been said of so many of the great daring ” crazy ones” in every field – maInly by sheep with little wieners.

      Think big and make it happen, or be small and stfu.

  3. “Siri, I’d like to watch A Space Odyssey again.” (Silence.) “Siri?”

    “I’m sorry, Dave, I’m afraid I have shown that movie 13 times already. May I suggest something else? Perhaps you’d like a nice western ….”

  4. Of course SJ’s brain waves, probably his soul too for that matter have probably been built into Siri to quietly grow, so expect once it gains full consciousness a siri controlled iphone to come on to stage to present as one last thing the new improved upgraded SJ.
