    iTunes Match is great, but the really great and anticipated feature, let’s call it for the time being, Apple Voice, didn’t. It’s still expected and maybe in time for the fall release of iOS 5? s

    The sooner the better as it is expected, thanks to Apple’s purchase of Siri and agreement with Nuance, Apple Voice should utterly blow Google’s Voice to smithereens!
