Apple may open up Siri to developers. That’s a huge deal. - The Washington Post

That should be "reopen;" see SIRI RISING: The Inside Story Of Siri’s Origins — And Why She Could Overshadow The iPhone (Huffington Post, 1/24/2013) for some historical details; also see Siri-creator shows off first public demo of Viv, ‘the intelligent interface for everything’ (TechCrunch)
"Apple is taking two big steps to improve its voice-controlled assistant, Siri, according to a new report from tech news site the Information that cites a single person with "direct knowledge" of Apple's plans. For one, it's apparently working on a standalone speaker that can house the voice-controlled assistant, like Amazon's Echo or the forthcoming Google Home.

That may sound like some pretty big news, even Apple is a little late to the market for smart home hubs, apart from some small forays with Siri and the Apple TV. But the real revelation from the Infomation article is the report that Apple's going to open Siri up to developers, perhaps as soon as next month during the company's annual developers conference. An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment on the report."
