Or by "double-clicking" both volume buttons simultaneously. Have a service that is started even before the card loads completely, so that there is less perceived lag...

All in all, i like the idea, even though i'd never use it...

One thing that makes me wonder, on the reasons that Palm couldn't do such a thing like the Voice Search capability similar to the "Just Say" for WebOS 2.0 ? I mean just a few Chinese developers that created such a useful tool for WebOS, without much resources and it was created....And the team at Palm couldn't made this feature possible for WebOS phones/platform.

Well they were struggling with developing the core system to merge 2.x with 3.x. And at this time "getting things done" via JustType was quite fast compared to other mobileOS possibilities. What HP did afterwards, i'm not very sure - but they blew it. In my opinion voice search would still be no high priority task on webOS development, i think there are way more important fields to catch up.

The voice recognition is not bad, but it seems that some of the location-based services that have been used for Just Say don't work outside of China. For example, it will only tell you the weather and show you the map of cities in China.

what did it take for you to install? Does it search the local phone data at all? Like typing a contact's name into just type.

man this is the kind of stuff that really makes you wonder what the limits are for webos in the right hands.

I think someone mentioned this earlier. Just download the ipk from the developer's website JustSay and install the package.

It seems it does not use data from contacts, but I seem to remember the dev had a screenshot of it launching another app. You can follow him on www.weibo.com/noteday

Most of the functionality seems to be based on GPS. It can also give you word definitions and other info from an encyclopedia. It has a funny sense of humour too.

Speech recognition has advanced quite a lot in the last couple of years. So has network speed and easily available natural speech parsing systems. There's a lot more involved than just "listen to mic, turn words into text, google for text". And that second step isn't particularly easy, and was in a much worse state back in 2009, 2010 when there were some fairly significant advances in that.

But, I think what most services are doing (I could be wrong) is just sending the straight audio to a processing system on the other end of the internet, which then turns it into words, then lexes it out for natural language parsing into something that it can try to understand, and then returns the response for searching on that. It's all quite messy.

Theoretically, Autonomy, if it works properly, could have one hell of a good engine for that sort of thing, but I'm not sure how general their stuff is.

I'd love to see it, since people go nuts over voice-to-text-message things, but frankly, I think most of us would end up playing with it a few minutes, then never using it again.

I have Siri and rarely use it as it seems more of a novelty to me. Yes there are some cool things about it but usually she's just a pain especially texting or emailing as if I pause she is ready to send.
