Is Siri Coming To The Mac?

According to a recent patent filed by Apple (diagrams shown below), the Mac maker is looking to implement something called a voice control system. Allegedly, this will allow you to pair your Mac with your iPhone and other devices for voice services. Essentially it will allow services like Siri to remain on the smartphone, but be utilized by connected devices like a Mac, iPad, AppleTV, or iPod. Imagine talking to your computer and having it understand you. This is like Star Trek. The new feature may not be exclusive to Siri though. Utilizing this technology, you may actually be able to make calls from a device that is not a phone. How cool is that?
