Not interested if I have to say a full sentence just to turn on/off my computer.
Windows Vista/7 already has speech function where you can do basic commands like open media player, click start and so forth.

Voice activated things never work that great. You always have to say the commend over and over. This is not a feature I would use.

wait till it learn more phrases like 'overclock', 'shut off cpu fan', 'format hard drives' and things will get pretty interesting

You mean I get to say a long phrase to power the computer now instead of an instant push of the power button? Awesome!

Agreed.
Before card: Press button to turn on.
After Card: Sit down and position mic. Clear throat. Say oddly long phrase and hope system understands.

Let's hope it understands odd accents, like Brooklyn New Yoikers accent, or the Deep South Alabaiyma, not to mention all the pig-latin from Chinese, Russian or African people.

Since I already named all my PCs at home, it will be very cool and showoff to my friends when I can say something like, "Release the Kraken" to turn on and off a pc of mine.

Haha, I'm ready to pay $50 for it as long as it works most of the time.

New entry for a malicious virus. You download some music, video or game and when played out from your speaker comes "Power Off MSI Big Bang" and down goes your machine!

LOL @ the "new way to troll"

This is a cool idea, but I just don't see it being super useful. The thing is newer versions of Windows already have voice controls built in. So the "open control panel" etc. seems like a moot point. So the only new thing this is really offering is the ability to turn on your computer with voice.

Which brings me to my second point. The power saving features in newer versions of Windows make it so I (and probably most people) never even shut my system off anymore. I simply let it go to sleep. Maybe there is a "wake up" voice command?

[citation][nom]user_ace[/nom]How long before I can say "computer, scan the planet for Z-particles"?[/citation]
You can do that already, it just won't find any Z-particles

Don't forget to ask for tea, Earl Gray, hot

The computer won't make the tea either, but maybe your Mum will, while she is there, tell her to make you a sammich!
