But last week, I got my first mobile notification from Google Now. I was at an event in SLC at The Leonardo. I had a dinner meeting in my calendar at 6:15. At roughly 6pm, Google Now sent me a mobile notification that I needed to leave because the place I needed to be at 6:15pm was a 9 minute drive. I was impressed. That’s value add.
No doubt, Google Now is amazing. Everything Siri should have been/should be.
I now use Siri about once a quarter and even at this ultra-low usage rate, its speech recognition is lagging relative to others.
