Charles, I would like to prefer voice as output also. So I can use hands free for surfing and info gathering from net, while engaged with other jobs.
Cabe, it's a good idea. I think apart from that there have to be some provisions for audio search and retrieving the information from internet through audio mode. I mean instead of read, users have to able to listen the information in audio format.

Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
