    Google has slipped a plug-in into the iOS5 service stream which would change Siri's voice to be that of the phone's owner, so that it would sound like you're talking to yourself when using the new feature. This was evidently an effort to demonstrate that iPhone users really are crazy, ostensibly for not buying an Android. This strategy has backfired somewhat as it is actually quite popular in many areas of lower Manhattan. One Wall Street iPhone owner was quoted as saying "Yes, dear, I really did give our beach house to charity." It was unclear at press time if that was the iPhone owner speaking or if it was a spontaneous glitch in the Google plug-in.

    This whole thing reminds me of Gerdy from the movie Moon.

    Well to be frank I don't know what you expect... The voice will always be a generated voice, not an actual human voice. Until the technology for that improves drastically, and in a way that can be implemented in a mobile device, the Siri voice is not going to sound like a real person.
    Maybe they can change it to your voice.lol It would be nice to have a large selection of famous people to choose from. Time will tell.

    I think they should give us the option of STEVE's voice. Awesome or what.

    I think if it were Steve's voice, his family/friends would never want to use Siri.

    they should give you a "settings" for it where you can tweak the pitch, tone, etc... then people could get cool voices and share the settings for everyone!

    I'm thinking next update will offer that, at least.

    That would be fantastic. And I am sure something like that is on the horizon. Remember, this is the first implementation of Siri so we can expect some great things ahead.

    Maybe someone can find a way to mod Siri on jailbroken iPhones? Maybe they'll even find a way to get it to run on iPhone 4! This is the kind of stuff the jailbreaking community wants....

    I hear rumors, but word on the street (or web) is that the jailbreak community is trying to get Siri on the 4, except it runs very slow.
