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.”
