New York Times: Google Voice Search is 'Definitely Smarter' Than Siri
The New York Times has published an article this morning criticizing Siri's performance as a personal assistant.
Over time, things have really soured between Siri and me. We barely speak anymore. And, although she doesn't know this, I've started seeing someone else. Her name, although not as mysterious or sexy, is Google Voice Search.
Google Voice Search, available in the latest operating software for Android phones, is a much better listener. It's definitely smarter. If I ask Google Voice Search a question, like, "Who is Tim Cook?" it responds with an answer. (He's the chief executive of Apple.) If I ask Siri the same question, the response is: "I don't see Tim Cook in your contacts."
Recent comparisons between Google and Siri have also put Google on top. Apple is updating Siri with improved results; however, the NYT argues that it is Siri's understanding of your question that is the problem not its ability to produce a result.
What do you think? Is Siri performing as well as you would like?
