Google Now is faster and more accurate, ie. better than Siri. Android phones has also overtaken iPhones. Oh well… Worst case scenario, people won’t option this MyLink system.
Hey GM, how about better cars?
Thumbs up on that.
I also hope they can carry these features over to other phone systems as well for those that run Android or Windows phones.
I dont want my car to be an Ipod accesory.
oh no, do we have to be a slave to this?
SIRI is useless..
I mainly use my iphone for making calls, Internet and news.
I don’t understand some people who are using heir phones all the time?.. What are they doing, just scrolling up and down for no reason.
Siri is not entirely useless. I find her helpful for setting alarms and telling you the weather forecast, but if you don’t live in the USA, for anything else. she is ppretty useless. I can’t see it being of much use in OZ until Siri realises that the world exist outside North America. Beside, if you want this feature, it seems you have to buy a Barina, No thanks.
Siri is unreal, create a sms, dictate the message and send it without touching the phone, and it works !
Sort of defeats the purpose of a TOUCHscreen phone doesn’t it…?
120 miles per hour for a, what’s this…a Chevy Spark? RIIIIIIGHT!
The Spark is too easy of a target.
And yet again, another company riding apples jock! Seriously, does anybody look outside the box? So much more going out there than Apple and their products. And like Dave W said, Google now is so much better and accurate!
Google sucks, they just copied the hell out of iOS.
Android still maintains 75% global market share. What did Android steal exactly? Rounded corners on rectangles? All I can see is Apple stealing ideas from Android. Copy & paste, notifications menu, 4″ 16:9 form factor, panoramic photos, social media intergration, etc. Not to mention all the things Android can do that iOS can’t. Bluetooth files, set default applications, native share function, auto update apps, widgets that save heaps of time being able to get the same information as opening multiple apps on iOS just from glancing at the homescreen.
Touch screen phones never had inertial scrolling before the iPhone, as was many multitouch gestures (which are patented by Apple). The App Store and iTunes has more content and is more refined.
They stole the vibe your honour…:)
Android does seem to make people cranky? I wonder why that is?
“OS – Cranky Pants”
I’d like my Siri to sound like Eddie Murphy… “hey man, someone stole your battery, i say we go get…”
I prefer Mr. T’s BA… “I say we go straight ahead, fool!”
Will be good keep more eyes on the road.
they think apple can boost their image or whatever up. apple’s died since steve jobs did.
this is a really good idea. Siri is by far the most advanced voice controll application available . nothing on Android or any other platform comes close.
Ah Apple fanbois, don’t ya just love ‘em!
Apple fanboys or Android fanboys, are both equally boring. I use an iPhone and both Windows and Mac PCs. The phone does what I need it to do and the computers both have their good and bad points. Slavish devotion to a particular brand is just plain dumb and shows an inability to think for yourself. Come to think of it, just like the Hyiundai and Kia slave that infect this site.
if someone can demonstrate to me a voice control system on a Android phone that works better than siri then i will eat my words. By the way. I am no apple fanboy, i own both and mostly use my Galaxy S3
I suppose you wouldn’t know since you probably don’t have Android 4.1 (JB) yet. Wait for the JB update on your S3, you’ll love it.
For now, just search Youtube for “Siri vs Google Now”.
SO this means Australia will get this technology in locally built cars in the next 15 years.
