    I thought this was interesting. There's not a lot in it, but Google's search definitely wins every time.

    This is bound to drive Apple to doing a bit better next time.

    Meh. Besides the search for dog pictures the speed differences between the phones wasn't significant, IMO.

    The biggest differences I noticed was that although Siri has a less human sounding voice she is programed to responded in a more human, conversational tone where as the Google phone has a more human voice but responds more like a robot. I also like how Siri repeats the reminder back to me (so I know it's right) as well allows me to do the whole process via voice. I set myself reminders all the time in the car or walking around and having to finish a voice-initiated task like that by looking down at the screen is much less convenient.

    This is the 4th thread with this piss poor comparison.

    Search is your friend people.
