Because if it were a microphone, then Google could sue for a patent violation! LOL
 
Apple: Implementing last year's Android features today!
 
Yeah, in this case, shoot, we got that feature on Froyo, didn't we? Lol
 
Well of course Google won't sue, because Apple magically invented a mircophone on the keyboard and the Android version is a microphone. HUGE difference! :-P
 
What do you think the percentage of people get this on Google+...?

iSheep won't get it
 
I get it,, wish I could just say it without pushing the button ;)
 
I got it. Siri for the iPad would be awesome!
 
Why are you paying for me to be spammed? How do I shut off this stupid "what's Hot" who the hell says it hot they are stupid too besides G+ is insulting for suggesting they need to tell me. Google shut off this what's hot!
 
google has voice recognition to voice dial and a bunch of stuff why the crap i need suri
 
Could be very useful for speeding up business for bad typists.
 
+Anthony Burokas: You say that, but you've clearly never dealt with the south. "t'a'int" is synonymous with "it isn't," and "froke" rhymes with "broke" but is otherwise known as "freaked." Voice recognition is also notoriously bad with pretty much any accent that isn't northwestern US.
 
I grew up in the northwest, but Tulsa is home. People there find it amusing that my voice tone, cadence and dialect changes starkly when I'm talking to an automated system instead of a local.
 
+Paul Johnson -- funny, I grew up in and around Tulsa, but now the northeast is home. I have to be careful not to let my Okie twang seep in when I'm doing voice commands.
 
I had to adapt to it because pacific northwesterners sound like a more neutral sounding overcaffeinated Briton thanks to proximity to Victoria (which does have a distinctly Commonwealth accent) and influence from the central plains (where many born Oregonians and Washingtonians ancestrally hail from). As such, if I go with the accent and dialect I grew up with in Tulsa, I'm speaking too fast, clipped and enunciate too much for the locals to understand.

On the other hand, the opposite is fun...if I let slip my best Tulsan accent, folks in Oregon assume I'm substantially less educated than I actually am.
 
+Paul Johnson LOL -- in large contract negotiations, I've exaggerated my Oklahoma accent, which universally results in the other side underestimating me. They think I'm a sweet little southern belle, while I'm ever so sweetly clawing their eyes out (figuratively speaking) (and I guess it doesn't hurt that I'm 5'1" and petite).

Okay, back on topic! Sorry to hijack!!
 
+Paul Johnson it's what I was joking about in the first few posts: mircophone versus microphone. The r and c are reversed.
 
Wow, I read that at least five times and didn't see it until you pointed it out. I'm apparently more wiped out than I thought today.
 
+Matt Kelly: I'd rather the Linux Foundation or the Electronic Frontier Foundation did that.
 
Sorry the estate of George Booles owns the universal world rights to all IT cyber technology Google Facebook Microsoft and Apple are trespassing they must cease and desist, or I will walk into your homes on their behalf and confiscate your junk!! You are were suckers to those extortionists in the first place.

So screw you and Bill Gates!


George Boole ( /ˈbuːl/; 2 November 1815 – 8 December 1864) was an English mathematician and logician. His work was in the fields of differential equations and algebraic logic, and he is now best known as the author of The Laws of Thought. As the inventor of the prototype of what is now called Boolean logic, which became the basis of the modern digital computer, Boole is regarded in hindsight as a founder of the field of computer science. Boole said, ... no general method for the solution of questions in the theory of probabilities can be established which does not explicitly recognise ... those universal laws of thought which are the basis of all reasoning
 
What me I am completely innocent you won't get me coppers! The geniuses of parasitical capitalism and vulture can not prove their idiots products are original they are all HACKS, cheats and thieves. and as HACKS cheats and thieves they should get what they deserve NADA NOTHING ZERO!
 
yeah start studying the manual, get your lawyer to look over the terms of service before they recall your life, and don't forget to renegotiate the bank's iron clad finance terms for the purchase of preplanned obsolescent electronics.before they fir you because you do your job too well as you have to be a positive thinking team player as it doesn't matter that you and your family don't have health care since having health insurance doesn't mean you can find a lawyer or a doctor when you need them locally.
