    Awesome! Google Now tech is in the iPhone :)

    Wow, hats off Google. I was amazed by this feature in Jelly Bean, I can finally get a decent advanced voice search assistant on my iPhone 4. Siri is too limited to only the 4S and New iPad.

    Only problem is this isn’t integrated with 4S and iPad 3. If Apple wasn’t greedy about license pricing, we’d have Google Search on the iPhone as an integration instead.

    Why would I want this on my iPhone? I already have Siri, which works fine, and can be accessed quicker.

    So it’s like part of the Google Now functionality? Cool

    Does google do anything that ISN’T from someone else’s design??? Obviously not. Don’t be evil, just unoriginal.

    The stupid, it hurts.

    Apple didn’t create Siri. They bought it in 2010. Android incorporated “Voice Actions” in 2.2 “Froyo” (May 2010) and was announce prior. Apple purchased Siri in April 2010. Hmm. Sounds like Apple didn’t want to start falling behind. Siri wasn’t introduced into iOS until October 2011 as an Installable App then later included with the iOS. Do you really think Google Sat still after they release Voice Actions 2 years ago? Seriously? Google Now is an evolution of this concept. And guess what… Google’s not done. Project Majel is coming with significant additional advancements. Yuh see? Not sitting still.

    As for copying? iCloud, yeah Android has had that for a few years now.

    Quick responses? A4.0(2011), iSO6(2012).
    Notification bar? A1.5(2009), iOS5(2011).
    Actual Applications? A1.0(built into it from design),iOS2(2008, after much developer complaints).
    Navigation? A1.0(2008), iOS3.0(2009)
    Sharing (holy crap, iOS has NOTHING on Android in regards to sharing). Not just facebook or twitter either.
