And you can see the whole clip here:

Unlike in the clip you posted, he successfuly does application launching and switching betwheen windows. Also, after the part where the voice recognition fouls up, he removes the text and starts anew dictating a letter without any problems. But of course, these part don't help when you're out to bash Microsoft. ;-)

Anyhow, as described pretty detailed in the YouTube description of that clip, it was a known bug and it hs been resolved.

If you want to know exactly what caused it, you can read all about it here:
