In science fiction, we have dreamed about the days when we’ll talk to our computers to make things happen.  In Star Trek, crew members can talk to the Holodeck computer to “program” and explore amazing virtual experiences.  Tony Stark(aka. Ironman) constantly gets situation awareness from Jarvis during battle by simply talking to his device.   We’re still a long way away from Holodecks, R2D2, and Ironman.   As developers, we can explore the potential of voice interactions with mobile devices today.
