    rated them the same? he’s doing it wrong. You have to rate one way higher than the other to create controversy and get more pageviews, Isn’t that how research works now?

    On a serious note, it is interesting to see how they advance – especially as more voice activated technology hits the market (glass, watches, whatever TV apple hasn’t released yet)

    Yes the thing to pay attention to is the broader development of voice + AI + context

    I still want to be able to say “Ok Google, record the Lions game” on my phone, and my TV just does it.

    I suspect one day in the not-too-distant future you will be able to. Google is apparently developing a set-top box, which will undoubtedly integrate with Android smartphones.

    The distinction between Google Voice Search and Google Now is an important one. They really are different, and the latter is amazing (including its ability to gather up searches and context from other devices).

  • RyanMJones

    saw that. Side note: I hate the word “set-top” Most tv set tops are about 1 inch wide. that’d have to be one really tiny box.

    Ryan’s point leads to the future of personal assistant technology, the ubiquitous personal assistant that follows you across devices, and makes the OSes and devices all feel like one thing. Google, Siri, and Samsung (using its Nuance-powered S-Voice on Galaxy phones) are in the running to control this, particularly since it has deep implications for advertising revenues.

    Interesting study Greg. Thanks for the differentiation of Google Now vs. Google Voice Search. I propose a new Final Jeopardy with IBM Watson, Siri and Google Now in a machine only field.

    I guess with tasker you could figure out a way, but that would be a lot of work
