What the heck?! This is a simple work that Apple could take care of that! The problem rises when the TV voice signals overlap with the voice signals of the one who controls Siri!! that is what we don't know about how steve jobs cracked it!! All the rest is not a big step toward!

TV will mute (or almost mute) itself when listening for your commands. You will probably still have to press a button to activate Siri, so I really doesn't see problem there.

I think it could be quite easy to somekind "noise cancel" what's comming out of the tv...

If I was Steve I won't call such a finding cracking. That is the most straight way of thinking to take care of this problem. And again consider that you are carrying a remote. The only difference here is that you have an iPhone in your hand instead of a remote!! Again you should carry something

@Sou: Noise canceling as a computational process is a very complex and hard dynamic. In fact most of the algorithms used today are rather primitive. Try to talk to Siri bot not alone, try it with someone else at the same time and see the outcome.(consider the fact that the second one talking could be anyone but not talking to the Siri, but Siri wouldn't understand such a fact)

With all Siri proxy plug-ins that are coming out, Apple should open their stupid control policy and open things to developers ....

"easy to use." If your television is hard to use, then you are an idiot.

Wow this guy that says ur an idiot is way off at what jobs might have been thinking when he said he cracked it....Its sooo funny how the other day i was at my grand pas house watching tv with him and my little bro, who wanted to watch a movie granpa bought for grandpa was tryin to change from cable to dvd player and said " i wish i could just tell this thing what to do!!!!" he had just gotten the tv couple months ago and could only use some parts of it...... If steve jobs really cracked it then on behalf of my grandpa (whome i love) and aaaallll the granpas and grandmas in the world who have lots of trouble using todays tvs.... And many llittle brothers who just wanna watch the new damm dvd grandpa just got em......Thank you!!!!! :)
