Poll – are you excited about smartphone voice control?

Keen to start barking orders at your smartphone? Or happy to let your fingers do the talking?

Apple's 'Siri' personal assistant certainly isn't the first time we've seen voice control on a mobile device – see Google Voice Search on Android – but its sophistication and sense of humour make it a charming glimpse of the future of tech interfaces. It'll even do an impression of HAL 9000, if you ask nicely.

But does the idea of having KITT in your pocket excite you? Or do you think humans talking to inanimate objects is proof that humanity is unforgivably lazy and imminently doomed? Vote and leave your comments in the box below and you could appear in the December issue of Stuff, on shelves on 2nd November.
