A new patent application published suggests that Apple’s looking to go much further when it comes to having users talk to their Macs. The Intelligent Digital Assistant In A Virtual Environment application was filed February 4 this year, and describes a Mac-based Siri every bit as smart as its mobile iOS counterpart. The patent application depicts a future OS X dock featuring an icon for Siri, which could be available to use for dictation or commands from inside various different programs. Keep in mind that this is a rumor and nothing is confirmed. For those who don't know Siri was originally introduced as an iOS application available in the App Store by Siri, Inc., which later was acquired by Apple on April 28, 2010. After that Siri has been an integral part of iOS since iOS 5 and was introduced as a feature of the iPhone 4S on October 14, 2011. Siri has been a Standard on all iOS devices since the iPhone 4S.
