Google Apparently, this is a major victory of the patent system. This, this right here, this is what the patent system has come to. This is the destructive effect it's having on this once beautiful industry. Thanks to trolls like Apple and Microsoft, basic, elemental functionality is being removed from devices people already own.

Enter Samsung's S Voice.


Yet the concept behind Siri isn't particularly new, or revolutionary. It also inherits from the boatloads of previous research that has been done in this area.

What IS good about Siri is the execution of the concept. If it took so long to work on Siri then in all likelihood it is the better implementation. It should therefore compete and win against S-voice on the merits of the product.

It does. I've tried S Voice on my Galaxy Nexus and it's pretty terrible. But it's implemented EXACTLY like Siri is.

It's so unfinished, it's as if Samsung beat the eggs and poured the goop on my plate. Completely skipped the skillet.

It LOOKS like Siri, the implementation is probably different...
