Microsoft: We've Had Siri-Like Tech for More Than a Year

Microsoft’s Craig Mundie made it known in a recent interview that Apple’s Siri voice recognition technology is nothing new; matter-of-fact, Microsoft has had TellMe technology for over a year. The difference is Apple just has better marketing than Microsoft according to Mundie, the chief research and strategy officer for Microsoft. I’m sure the Microsoft Marketing Department is just thrilled by the announcement. I like my grapes on the sour side: How about you? big grin

Microsoft acquired TellMe in early 2007 and the company announced its first app for Windows Mobile in April 2009آ—a downloadable program that let users dictate text messages, dial phone numbers, or search the Internet by voice.
