Google Now named Popular Science’s Innovation of the Year

Google Now is one of the coolest, most revolutionary features in Android 4.1 and above. It changes the way you interact with a phone and still has a ton of untapped potential. And apparently, Android diehards aren’t the only ones who think so, as Popular Science has named Google Now its Innovation of the Year.

That’s a fairly prestigious award, too. Other notable entries are the digital camera, TiVo, and the Apple iPhone and App store. Blasphemy, right? Apple jokes aside, it really is an unbiased, impressive award to claim, and congratulations to Google for getting that recognition. PS editor-in-chief said of Google Now “It really crosses a line, not just technologically, but in terms of the expectations that we humans have about our relationship to our technology,” and even claimed Apple’s Siri seemed “outdated in comparison.”

What do you guys think? Has anyone seen their smartphone a little differently since Google Now has been added?

    I don’t see what new innovations the iPhone 5 brought? It is same old stuff with small obvious improvements, faster cpu, bigger screen
    Bug fixes and new bugs added. Lousy maps, purple haze, wifi and battery issues….

    Google now is good in comparison of Siri. It works fine as a personal assistant.
