Apple doing a Speech-Driven Interface

UIs: Apple planning ‘Spoken Interface’ for 10.4. Damn! This was one of the main reasons I chose Linux over MacOS X for my new laptop!

You see, Linux has xvoice, which combined with a scriptable window manager and the now-samizdata version of IBM’s ViaVoice for Linux, means that a whole lot of UI navigation can be performed via voice.

Well, now it seems Apple are into the idea too — and they’ll probably do the job right and without the samizdata. ;) (Found via WorldChanging).

Politics: The full Bruce Sterling ‘State of the World 2004’ speech.
