    Title a bit dramatic and following conclusion over-stated. Apple has already indicated future improvements to Siri.

    "I have no doubt that Apple will add better search features to Siri over time. But what most people won't realize is that Google has already beaten Siri with Google Now."

    The "already beaten" suggests the competition is over. It is a continual leap frog of one better than the other until the other raises the ante even more. Sounds like Business Insider got just a bit carried away.

    I thought Apple recently won a patent suit which meant that the pretty features of the Iphone appearing in other devices had to be removed. Like many of the touch features of the Iphone; basically making many other phone plain ass phones.

    lol no.

    google remains basic, creepy and invasive.

    "Google Now, a feature which scans users' search history, calendar and location data to bring them relevant information at the right time."

    AKA

    "We want to track you so you we bring you 'relevant information at the right time.' i.e. sell you shit."

    No, I don't think so. You tried it, Google.

    Seems like Google has been rather desperate lately trying to get a couple of popular media outlets to promote Google Search over Siri.

    Anyone who ever understood what Siri meant will realize that Google has not done anything new with Google Search to take on Siri. Siri is a personal asistant and Google Search is still your basic Search Engine, nothing much different from what you get when you type in a question on Google.com.

    The reason why Siri is so popular is due to its ability to understand regular language rather than simple commands. You can ask Siri if its gonna snow in Toronto tomorrow or if you will need an umbrella today and it will understand what you are talking about. You can ask Siri to remind you to pay your bills the 12 of every month and it will say "ok ill start reminding you". You can ask Siri the stupidest question like what are you wearing, sing me a song, why dont you just shut the fuck up. Siri agian, is an assistant fully integrated in iOS and will eventually have its own API for the iOS SDK. Google Search is just another search engine and it is good at doing searches and set and alarm here and there nothing else beyond that.

    BMW, Audi, Hyundai, and other automakers are already in motion with adding Siri functionality built into steering wheel controls. Even if Android defeats Apple in content Apple has really nailed ease of use and integration with everyday life.

    Apple always seems to stays one step ahead.
