Back in September of 2012, a patent by Apple surfaced which suggested that perhaps Siri could be coming to Mac OS in the future, and rumors of OS X 10.9 also suggested that Siri and Maps could be integrated into the computer OS as well. As it stands there is no official word from Apple regarding that possibility, but a job listing spotted by Apple Insider has revealed possible plans as well, thus making the rumors and speculation a bit more believable.

The job calls for a Siri UI Engineer and according to some of the qualities the candidate should possess, it reads, “Familiarity with Unix, especially Mac OS X […] Passion for the Macintosh platform and writing simple, elegant software that is easy and fun to use.” Since Siri is currently limited to iOS, the requirement of familiarity with Mac OS X is rather interesting. Obviously no word on if this holds any merit, or when it will launch, but some believe Siri for Mac OS X could be announced for version 10.9. Either way we’ll take this with a grain of salt for now, but what do you guys think? Anyone looking forward to having Siri on your Mac?
