Mac OS X 10.9 to include Siri, Apple Maps integration? According to sources, the upcoming Mac OS X 10.9 will integrate Siri and Apple Maps from its iOS counterpart.
So far, these sources have tested early builds of the operating system, and say the Siri voice command software works very similar to iOS devices like the iPhone and iPad.

Currently, Macs with Mountain Lion have access to "Dictation," which uses the same hardware and software infrastructure as Siri.

Furthermore, Apple will look to integrate the oft-criticized Apple Maps into the OS X framework for developers. Devs will then be able to embed a map into their applications for the Mac App Store.

More official word on OS X 10.9 is expected by February.
