Siri Dictation on new iPad

What is perhaps most surprising in a pleasant way is that it seems to be hard to outpace the recognition. In initial testing, I've found that in dictating text (that is, creating it and not reading prepared text), the recognition keeps up with my thoughts, and, in fact, I'm lagging behind.
