People have been fascinated by Google Now and all of its possibilities since it was announced, and now it looks like Popular Science is pretty impressed too. It has named the new service the Innovation of the Year.
Popular Science tries to choose products that are “milestones”, products that really change things in our world. Past recipients have been the digital camera, seedless watermelon, the portable defibrillator, TiVo, SpaceShipOne, the genome sequencer, the Apple iPhone and App Store, and the Large Hadron Collider. So that’s impressive company.
According to Popular Science editor-in-chief, “Voice interfaces like Siri seem outdated by comparison. With Google Now, you don’t pull the phone out when an idea occurs to you. You pull it out when an idea occurs to it.”
