Virtual personal assistant shootout: Talk the talk  - read the full textWhat can I help you with? Hope your day is going well. Itís a start. But itíll take time for the likes of Siri and Google Now to live up to the Intelligent Personal Assistant title. Surprisingly, intelligent isnít too far off for software thatís context and location aware, does speech recognition...

Best one for me..

Even while phone is locked:

1. Hold down home button
2. Say "set alarm for 8am".
3. Done.


1. Hold down home button
2. Say "remind me to pay my electricity tomorrow".
3. Done.

However I look at it, these assistants are mere gimmicks. I can perform tasks faster by hand.

What about S Voice? I think it is just as good as Siri and it turns in actual weather reports compared to Google Now..

I wish I could post a photo here, but on my iPhone when I asked "why did the chicken cross the road" the response was "whether the chicken crossed the road or the road crossed the chicken depends on your frame of reference, according to Einstein". Funny, but true!

Anyway great review and write up good read.
