I'm personally way beyond ready for full Siri integration and iPhone compatibility. The resonating echo of Steve Jobs' "synchronicity" keeps striking me every time I see this. As for myself and millions of other Apple users (though I don't consider myself an Apple fanboy) I love the functionality and intuitive nature of ...
