Siri listens too fast, Siri is impatient, and Siri doesn't know who my best friend is.

Ok, got my new iPhone 4s. Siri is great and all, but I want to use it to dictate notes, and I find that it assumes I'm done speaking waay too quickly. Within a second, it's processing my request! But when I have something to record, I'd like to occasionally wait a few seconds between words. Is there any way to adjust how quickly it thinks I'm done speaking? [more inside]

Connecting Multiple USB Microphones to a Mac Laptop

I need to find the best way to connect more than one microphone (probably two but it could be up to four) to a Mac laptop. I don't need studio quality but will be capturing voices and I'd like them to sound decent. The signal from the mics would need to be seen by Flash, for teleconferencing, and by the basic Apple OS applications (Quicktime, Garage Band, etc.) Is it possible to connect more than one USB microphone at a time, perhaps through a hub? If not, is there a simple external digital mixer that I can use? Is there an on-line store that specializes in this type of audio? And is the a wireless USB option?

Total itunes/airtunes setup from scratch, please.

I have 300gb of music, a house, several Mac laptops, a Mac G5, a router, two iphones, an ipad, and several external HDs where the music is stored. I would like to be able to play music anywhere in my house, control it wirelessly without the laptops and update libraries as well as all my devices with whatever I like anywhere in the house, without having to drag out the external USB HD to plug into various laptops like I do now. I'm willing to buy equipment to let this happen. Bonus if it lets me move movies onto a USB stick to plug into my nifty new tv. Details under the fold. [more inside]

How Do I Connect 3 External Drives To My WiFi Network?

I've replaced an aging iMac with 3 external drives hanging off of it with a Macbook Pro with the same 3 external drives hanging off of it. The setup also includes a cable modem and a Time Capsule. Right now the drives are in daisychained Firewire mode. I'm looking for a way to connect the drives to my wifi network so I can eliminate the need to plug the first drive into the laptop? Staying with Firewire would be nice, but it's not a deal breaker.

Under the Shade of the Unusable Pear Tree

I have a decent sized pear tree in my backyard...in Minnesota...so the growing season is far too short to yield edible fruit from the tree. Can I simply: 1) cut it down; 2) dig up the roots of the tree; 3) plant an apple tree in the same hole; 4) and start getting apples after a few years? Or is there a lot more to it that I don't know that I don't know?
