    This is cool especially given how many issues so many of my friends seem to have with assistants... at least the very basic stuff can be accomplished.

    That interaction with Google will be in the form of a back-and-forth conversation, something the company has been working on for a while now. Thanks to its Knowledge Graph, Google has become significantly better at understanding its users intends and it is already able to use voice recognition for at least a limited amount of conversation that is able to work with pronouns (and that’s really the first step in making conversations with computers seem natural). It’s not exactly the Star Trek computer, but it’s a clear first step in the direction Google is taking. Google Know currently handles 38 languages and knows about more than 18 billion facts and their connections. That – more than its search index alone – is what will create the Google of the future.

    Sounds very cool but yes, invasive.

    Well, when Google can make me coffee or run errands for me, I'll give it a try...

    Hi Steve,

    It looks like you're about to get gay-bashed. I've looked up the average kill-time for this procedure, and it's unfortunately shorter than what it takes for the police to arrive here on time.

    I've taken the liberty to write a facebook post saying "I'm dead. #loveyouall". Would you like to complete a survey on Google Personal Assistant before you leave?
