I'm having a hard time seeing how you're excited about using DD-WRT. A brief tour of the Wiki shows the typical Linux UI: "Here's the nice web form you fill out, um, except for the options we're too lazy to provide UI for. So use this cryptic half documented command line. For details, go read the source code..." I'll take my dusty three your old router instead, thanks.

I use Google voice recognition all the time, both Goog411 and the Android voice recognition. Both are remarkably effective and useful, and the pervasive availability of voice input is (IMO) a killer feature of Android phones. I've heard the reason Google gives away the Goog411 service for free is it lets them acquire a massive, user-corrected training set for their VR algorithms. It seems to be working. I've had cases where Goog411 handles cases ("Le Boulanger Café") that human operators failed at.
Would somebody on the GMail team copy this and post a bug report? Thanks!
