    Siri actually does suck! Google Now blows it away....

    Who's ready to hear about Apple suing Google over Google Now??

    "Incredibly impressive here what Google has done. [...] If voice assistant was one of the big reasons you were going to consider an iPhone 4S, you might want to look at a Galaxy Nexus..."

    And they're still both 'beta products.'

    Nice. Now let's get it on our phones.

    Bu what about texting or emailing or making a phone call. He didn't show that. I think those are more common tasks than asking how tall Kobe is.

    I can't get her to fail me. She even sounds way hotter than Siri Seriously, I never thought there would be a day when I didn't think of voice command/search as a gimmick that I'd use. That day has passed.

    Definitely pretty neat, personally I don't see myself using it very often if at all though.

    Versioning numbers depends on development organization, younger Chrome for example is on version 20.0 right now, Linux was 2.x for.. over 15 years

    You find yourself using it all the time, don't you? I almost don't use the browser anymore and just go straight through Google Now. I've had so many people ask me why I'm returning my S3 for an unlocked Nexus and this is a huge, huge part of it.

    Jelly Bean makes the Galaxy Nexus a contender again. Google Now and Google Voice Search trump anything the S3 or the One X has to offer. Then I remember I get to enjoy all that with stock Android, a UI that is much faster and smoother now thanks to Project Butter. Switching back to the Galaxy Nexus was a no-brainer for me.

    But those features will eventually reach S3 and One X anyway, including "Project Butter" which is improvement in Android UI drawing system.

    The short hands-on videos like the one in the OP are good demonstrations, but this is truly impressive. Your move, Siri.

    Emphasis added. That's the main point there -- there's a significant delay unless you're willing and able to unlock your phone and "deal with" ROMs. Furthermore, I'm not quite sure that all of these features will, with manufacturers such as Samsung starting to add their own (albeit very poor quality) versions of voice input and search.

    Gotta admit she sounds better than Siri does. Just sounds more natural.

    something to keep in mind with Google Now, is that it isn't aimed at being a personal assistant in your phone, but does allow for limited functionality like setting appointments, and that sort of thing. it's meant to get information to you. Siri is aimed at being a personal assistant, part of which includes giving you information you ask it for.

    so it's only natural that Google smokes Siri at retrieving information from the web, whereas Siri probably has a bigger number of actions/tasks it can perform for you. (for now)

    i think Google will position Now like that for a while and continue improving and speeding up how it works before adding in more personal assistant features. this is a HUGE first step- especially for being a x.1 release over ICS. just imagine what they'll do with 4.2 or 4.3...
