While Apple’s WWDC is of little interest to hard-core Android customers, Google I/O can and often is of significant interest to Apple customers. It’s where Google shows off its big new initiatives and previews updates for its existing services. Some years, those are blips on the radar, here for a moment, gone the next. Other years their scope and implications shake the world. This year, for me, fell somewhere in the middle. Google was restrained, relatively speaking, and focused. Yet as much as they acknowledged the need to shore up what came before, the company’s focus is clearly on what’s coming next. And that’s worth a deeper discussion.
How iMore’s Rene Ritchie perceived the Google I/O accouncements.
While I think the article is long and boring and repetitive. At some point Google Now got mentioned:
“Google Now continues to fascinate me. There’s nothing I’d love more than Tony Stark’s JARVIS in my life â€” a virtual persona assistant to rival a real one. Yet, at the same time, nothing would terrify me more. Privacy, like security, is at perpetual war with convenience.”
What I think ? There is only one thing to say:
“a personal assistant should be personal”
Meanwhile, Apple loses in trademark case.
