Shouting at your TV will soon have more of an impact than just raising your blood pressure, with news that DirecTV
expects to update its smartphone remote app with voice-control this summer. Capable of searching through live TV and on-demand content, and - like Apple's Siri
- recognizing natural language rather than requiring the viewer memorize specific controls, CNET
reports, the functionality will not only allow you to chatter to your DirecTV box in the living room, but remotely command it while out and about.
