BlackBerry Assistant, Cortana, Google Now, Siri, etc., will provide significant boost to NSA's spying obsession

These 4 and other Cloud-based voice control services will provide valuable voice samples fodder to the NSA's voice-matching software [assuming the NSA will be able to intercept these samples as they're sent to the Cloud for processing], giving it a boost in recognizing people far more accurately. NSA will now be able to match requests/searches made through these services with intercepted phone calls, and thus draw further context about an individual. Cool.
