Siri in iOS 6 vs Google Voice Search in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (video)

Both services are able to tell you the weather when you ask them, set up timers and reminders, as well as relay sports results to you with the power of natural language. In the video below from Techno Buffalo it is clear that Google's new solution is faster and the voice it utilizes sounds more human, while Siri has more sophisticated info cards layout popping up when you ask it how tall is Kobe, for example...

WONG! like always unlike Siri that has to wait for your input Google now will try to figure out what you up to next

baseball? Google now has the ongoing scores of your favorite team right when you tap on it

weather? Google know has the weather in your city and (in case you want to tr) the city you are planing on visiting when you open it

Google now even knows the best dishes of that fancy restaurant you plan on visiting before you even ask it

that's not all its performance in answering real life questions is way better! ant his video (you actually bother watching it right?) or this link

I mean when you compare, Siri's advance features are Google Now's basic features

like always google learns what you do and adjusts to it. did you watch the video at all, taco, or are you just trolling like normal? Once GVA figures out that he likes a certain team, it will update him automatically for all sorts of things for that team.
GVA has always been more advanced than SIRI as far as actual functionality. This just adds in the missing ability to take multiple versions of the same command which was SIRIs strong point, but adds even more functionality with a better voice as well. GVA fixed its only weakness and then added so much more.
And not to be overlooked, the fact that GVA now works WITHOUT an internet connection is just fantastic. Take your iphone off the internet and see how SIRI works.

People are happy not because it is 'gimmick' but because Google's 'gimmick' is better than Apple's 'gimmick'. ;)

Anything u talk to SIRI goes back to APPLE server and it takes a bit for it to give u some information. GOOGLE VOICE doesn't faster than SIRI just like in the video. and I remember WOZ saying bout he doesn't like SIRI going back to Apple server

Although I use an iPhone 4S and Siri often, I must admit, Google Voice is amazing! It's fast, accurate and simple. Can't believe I'm saying this but G-Voice is really straightforward. Kudos for Google; hats down.
