Apple's Siri voice recognition: sounds like Tomorrow's World today

Media_httpstaticguimc_vfwbr

If you grew up in England and were technically inclined you will remember "Tomorrow's World" - it played live right before "Top of the Pops"
As the Guardian Article points out there was often mention of computers powered by voice...now with Apple's Siri that distant future looks closer than ever.
In fact the "KNowledge Navigator" video is pretty much implemented in Siri (albeit it took from 1987 to 2011 to get into general availability)
Tight now that future is looking even more exciting and more accessible.
