Yeah, Google is slowly taking over as the identity but Android is still known as its own being for now.

As usual. Android fanboys making very questionable assumptions and denying the facts in favor of google, when google openly admits on Siri's compelling existence.

So Apple got to it first. Fun article and actually Siri is definitely a force of its own. I do wish they weren't bought out so android and BB would have this. BB users would get way more use out of this than most iPhone users I'm sure.

mhh I don't think so, for a couple of reasons:
the iphone app siri released in 2008 on ios first.
siri wanted after succes on the iphone to go to android market as well.
but apple bought it. Google could've never know about siri.
and the yes siri would be different if google acquired. siri uses now wolfram and yelp integrated it's beta now and alrdy the best I've seen. google would propable want to build straight third party apps into it. but apple is just waiting for this, to make sure they'll do it right. they do'nt wann rush.

A lot of apps come out on the iPhone first but eventually come out for other platforms.
I wish nobody would have bought it so it stayed as a free app.

Maybe. But you gotta admit it apple did a good job with it. The same when google bought android, they did a good job with that to and look at android now, it's rly good by the help of google.
