Google Now, Siri face off
Question: What is the meaning of life?
Siri: “I can't answer that now, but give me some time to write a very long play in which nothing happens.”
Google Now: The voice assistant was silent. Instead, keywords in that question triggered an ad for the Mormons on the top of the search results page.
Question: Please set my alarm for seven.
Siri: “I've set an alarm for 7 a.m.” Siri assumed 7 the next morning rather than 7 that evening.
Google Now: The voice assistant was silent. Instead, search results appeared, including an article on “How to Use Siri's Clock — For Dummies.”
