Honestly... Google Now is quite impressive.

I've been watching many user reviews of Google Now and I''ve got to say, it's very impressive. I didn't even know it existed until today. It's response time is almost mind blowing.

The official Google Now video didn't do much for me. But take a look at this one. It's kind of ':/' at first, but it starts to really impress me.

Has anyone else heard about this?

I have a Galaxy Nexus running Jelly Bean and I sure love Google Now. I even get my sport updates from Google Now.

It really is something isn't it? Its one of things that sold me on it. I don't have personal experience with Siri, but it did seem rather slow compares to Google Now in a comparison video. Hopefully Siri will improve in the the next interaction is iOS.

I love Siri, I use it every day. And I don't think Google is a replacement of Siri. But the more "human" voice and the speed of Google Now blows my mind, the examples of the sports score and the Obama lookup are what got me most. It's literally instantaneous.
