What gets me is how people keep thinking that a voice-command interface is a good idea. Aside from the password-entry problem, it overlooks the fact that most computer users can type faster than they can speak, and that it's easier to edit text than a dictated speech, and that it's a royal pain to speak loudly and clearly for hours on end.

You might indeed end up with an AI speaking like that magic mirror, though };>. It's the classic "How May I Help You?" voice-menu task, as implemented by someone on valium =^.^=.

Oh, this AI gets worse. Aside from its condescending manner, weirdly stilted method of speech, far stronger in some other clips, there are times where it seems deliberately obtuse in recognizing authorized user access, and where it tells someone to type in "JGA-3497-LVT" for no discernable reason before proceeding with a user request.
