Cards sounds like Tiles showing friends info.

Pathetic..... from now on you are just a WP bot from my PoV who has nothing else to talk other than live tiles, WP sh*t on any unrelated article.

I call out similarities. Look at this i bet you within a couple of years Google now will become the native Homescreen across Android, its their way of bringing a WP like Live homescreen that is not as clumsy as Widgets, Google now was largely inspired by WP Local scout who ushed in an era in integrated location based services, but unlike Local scout Google is adding large cards (their version of Tiles) with relevant consumers info, that bland Google now UI is going to become colorful adding lots of images, its pretty much WP
HTC One, Tizen and all those who are ripping WP tiles UI interface says you are wrong,

I would respond to him...but its not worth it anymore. WP bot seems appropriate.

If you'd ever use an Android with Google Now, you'd know that the cards are actually useful unlike those fugly and boring tiles.

Google Now is one of the first things to go when I get a new Android phone. Wish Google would add more platform features to Android vs. infesting it with more of their garbage.

I believe this has a lot to do with Android Wear, for as we have been shown, Google Now is a critical part of the system.
This especially makes sense with music controls.
