Apple Locks Down Patent on Siri Logo
Leaving no stones unturned, Apple is legally sewing up its ownership of anything and everything iOS related these days, right down to the logo we all have come to recognize as the face of this virtual assistant known as Siri.
It came to light Tuesday that Apple has secured the patent for the glittering icon that is Siri. In short, The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office says Apple retains the legal rights to the design described as "a silver microphone that glows purple when active."
Although the securing of intellectual property relating to Siri isn't a surprise, it's another critical example of how much the digital voice assistant means to Apple. Siri has already become a big hit on the last two iPhone models, the iPad mini, 5th generation iPod touch, as well as the iPads 3 and 4 (running iOS 6).
With talk of an iTV and future Macs welcoming Siri to the party as well, there's no telling just how integral or deeply intertwined this feature will be with future Apple products in the years ahead.

Just proves Siri is here to stay, whether you like it or not. I must say with the upgrades they gave in iOS 6 (being able to check sports scores especially) Im using it more and more.

Still more to be done to Siri for me to use it everyday I mostly use google search because if the little dumb ho can't hear or understand me then ill just type it with Siri she can't hear or understand I gotta close it then go to safari."You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not"

If it wasn't for the specification of purple, I'd be darned sure to say S-Voice is officially screwed.

Siri is still in beta IMHO. We have yet to see its full potential and won't see it for years. Every update Siri gets more capable, yet the basics have yet to be covered still. Like being able to launch applications(you can do this via a Cydia hack) or power your phone off with your voice. Siri is going to be awesome..we just have to be patient.
