Disappointed with Siri? Well, maybe you should ditch your fancy iPhone, because the upcoming Google Now "is a lot more impressive," writes Steve Kovach of Business Insider. After using Google Now for a few days, he's concluded that it "fills in all the gaps left by Siri, and does pretty much everything else a whole lot better. This is how search should work on mobile devices."
Among its features:
- If you've got a meeting, it will alert you when you should leave—taking traffic into account.
- Search for a sports team's score often enough, and it'll start sending you score notifications automatically.
- Taking a flight? It'll figure out your flight number based on your search history and automatically keep you updated on gate info and delays.
