Google Now keeps on top of you so that you can remember to do your chores
posted by Alan F. / Jul 06, 2014, 9:24 PM
You can set the reminders to go off "today", "tomorrow" or "occasionally." The first two are not recurring reminders, but the third one is. If you choose to have an event pop up occasionally, it will go to the top of your Google Now cards stack. When these reminders pop up, you can dismiss them or postpone them for another day.
Google won't reveal how many days until a postponed event comes back around to remind the user about the particular chore that needs to be done. It is just another way that Google Now tries to get information to you, when you need it the most. In this case, the app is warning you to get something done before you feel the impact of a rolling pin aimed at your head.

Yeah that's pretty cool.. Reminds me of the way Cortana can do these type of reminders.. Not exactly similar, but both are really nice to have... Lately I've been telling Cortana to "remind me to get socks the next time I go to WalMart", and asking Cortana to remind me to do things when I get home, or to my GF's house... Even if I don't do those things the reminder can be held off until the next time I reach certain destinations... Pretty cool, I think.... This is where smartphones are really becoming useful... I just can't wait to see what these PA's can do in the future.... .............. The day I can tell Cortana to start my car, and blast the AC, while I'm getting ready.... Well, it looks like that day is officially coming soon.

If you need a too personal VA system to remind you to do your chores then something's wrong.

Isn't that the main usage case for a VA? In a different question, do we REALLY need a smartphone? We can suffice our internet needs using a PC or laptop, but we do still spend hundreds of dollars on smartphones.

Step by step, Google Now transforms into "Google Own". What's next? Tell you what to eat and when? Tell you when to have sex with your significant other? When you should take a crap? Once they hook up a neural command interface into Google Glass, human beings will become nothing more than cheap mass-produced robots, ready to wear their master's command interface.

Isn't that what Apple does already ? you need to buy the new iPhone even though its the same thing over again. Isn't what Samsung does also. You need the next big thing even thought its a S4 over again? isn't that what the whole mobile industries does? Do we all really need the next phone not even a year after buying the first phone? I think we are all in the matrix already and having a matrix moment while in the matrix.
