Now that's what I call voice control

Our printer speaks. Well, the printer driver on the PC actually; it says 'printing started' because it's a wireless printer and we might be rooms away and not know if the printer is working. People do like this - when HP made a printer that was too quiet people complained because they missed that useful whirr telling them yes, the printer was actually working and the page was about to come out. But this morning the printer said 'please put paper in the sheet feeder'; and as if by magic sbisson turned round, picked up the paper and loaded it. Voice control - without me saying a word!
