Apple TV has Siri Voice Interface

Oct 27 2011, 2:09pm CDT | by , in Rumors | Apple

New York Times reports that the rumored integrated Apple TV would have a voice activated interface similar to Siri on the iPhone 4S.

This is one of the reports where I think to myself: "Why didn't I think of that." The New York Times's Nick Bilton runs a report today saying that the rumored Apple TV Steve Jobs was working on has a Siri voice interface. This way Apple solves the problem of using remotes or dealing with lean-back graphical user interfaces. If true that Microsofts' foray into the TV sector with the Xbox 360 must have pissed off Jobs. Microsoft already has voice control via it's cool Kinect interface.

So a voice activated TV is nothing new in principle, but the question is how powerful that interface is. I would like to say things like: "Record new season of Navy CIS:L.A. as soon as it launches." Switching channels with voice is obvious. Nick Bilton's examples of what a Siri powered Apple TV could do include "lay videos of cute cats falling asleep."

The Apple TV project has though still ways to go. The earliest release the New York Times sees is early 2013.

I would rather like to see Apple bring Siri to the Apple TV box first. As mentioned in this report, I do not think Apple will make big screens. They will offer 32 and 42-inch sets. These are to small for home theater enthusiasts.
