    • How about being able to shop with Siri? Integration with Amazon.com would be wonderful: “Find the lowest price for a 3 TB FireWire 800 disk drive.” Once you see the specs, Siri asks “Would you like to buy this item?” Answer yes, and you’ve purchased it, answer no and Siri asks if you’d like to look at other similar items.
    • Healthcare providers could also make life easier for their patients. My provider, Kaiser Permanente, has a wonderful online system for making appointments, contacting my doctor, and getting refills on prescriptions. Doing that by just saying “Order a 90-day refill of my Zantac” or “See if Dr. Healey has an appointment time available tomorrow,” and then being able to pick from a couple of open appointment slots would be a time saver.
