(Newser) – Hey iPhone 4S users, is Siri all you hoped and dreamed it would be? No? Well don't worry, Apple plans to fix it—just as soon as it hires someone up for the job. 9to5 Mac spotted a pair of new job postings on Apple's site, seeking new engineers "to make the next big thing even bigger."

The postings don't sugarcoat how hard a nut Siri is to crack. "Consider it an entire miniature OS within the OS, and you get a good idea of the scope!" one of them reads. They also list "passion for the Macintosh platform" as a plus, leading 9to5 Mac to speculate that a Siri port for Mac might be in the works. Jesus Diaz of Gizmodo is just glad Apple's putting in an effort to fix its "broken promise."
