    Being butthurt because I present a side of an opinionated argument that you do not agree and others do while attempting to make yourself seem more intelligent by googling a bunch of fancy words and slapping them together in a post does nothing to improve your argument or invalidate mine.

    When Apple does something truly remarkable besides their usual expected astronomical sales figures and iOS releases based on concepts taken from the jailbreak community......then I will give them their due credit. But right now all I am reading is stock predictions, a new mouse, more iOS 5 testing, and a bunch of rumors.

    Copying off of Android, nice one Apple.
    Right...because Google is the first company ever to use speech to text technology. In a related note, I'm just as upset with Apple because they copied Nokia's use of touchtone technology in mobile phones.

    Seriously, come up with something original Jobs.

    Voice works amazing on Android. I use it to do voice searches all the time and getting gps locations. I've sent a few text messages too from voice. No need to type anything.

    Honestly, it can't be worse than the people with headsets on their heads.

    Just another 'feature' Apple is snagging from Android. Yay Apple's version of innovation.

    Am I the only one not seeing how Apple is ripping off Android? Speech to text technology has been around for quite a while. Just because Android made is standard on their phones before Apple doesn't mean Apple is stealing ideas from Android.

    Keep in mind the iPhone was released long before any android phone, so I'm sure if we compared all features you'll find that 95% of the features on droid phones were on iPhones first.

    Ability to store large amounts of music? check.
    Built in GPS? check.
    No tactile keyboard? check.
    Check email? check.
    Apps? check.

    Now if Apple starts using something that Google/Android innovated themselves, then I'll agree that Apple is ripping ideas from them...but Google did not invent speech to tech technology. They simply put it in their phones before Apple did.

    Finally someone else agrees with me how its just two companies with a common technology being implemented on smart phones.

    As far as someone saying something about my post and how you must have big fingers to hit the speech button, its not that i have big fingers, its that when typing soo fast, i just expect to hit the space button somewhere down there. the same reason they made it big in the first place. haha

    Apple made the smart phone better. No doubt about it. Very few actual features were brand new when the iPhone launched.

    It would be silly to try and say that this feature isn't being added by Apple BECAUSE of the success of Android. It is a feature being used more than ever by Android users because it is implemented extremely well within Android. Is this ripping off? No, but it is taking advantage of a feature people use and love on another highly popular mobile OS.

    Yeah...I pretty much agree with you. I wasn't trying to say Apple was the first to use those features, I was simply saying Apple used them before Android.

    I do believe Apple would have eventually implemented speech to text anyway, so I wouldn't say they're doing it simply because it was successful on Android. I'm sure Jobs and his engineers/designers have many other features they want to implement, but are slowly releasing them with each iteration of the iPhone...it's just how he does things.

    Apple, lately, has only been implementing things that people clearly want. They seem to look at the jailbreak community first (as this is a great sign of what features people want and is essentially free statistic fro Apple) but they also look at the competition, no doubt. A great example of this was MMS. Job's, in his own words, said that email was the future. With enough whining and complaining they added the feature and it has all but been forgotten that we DIDN'T have it for the longest time. Cut & paste shares a similar history.

    A very good point. I wonder if the success of Vlingo also had something to do with the decision to include the text-to-speech option.
