    Google Now, Siri, and Microsoft’s Cortana Study: 2014

    I had a little frustrating moment with Google Now the other day. My friend was in an accident and I asked for directions to a local hospital. I continued on my way, following Google's advice and arrived at my location only to find an empty building. Google had taken me to a "Permanently Closed" location. You would think Google would take businesses marked as closed into consideration. I had no way of knowing it was closed without clicking into the map. That's my little beef for the day...

    Anyway, Stone Temple Consulting did a study Between Google Now, Siri, and Cortana. You can find the original study Here.


    Who Provides Better Answers Between Siri, Google Now, And Cortana?

    Stone Temple Consulting analyzed data from 3086 different queries to find out which gives the best answers between Siri, Google Now, and Microsoft’s Cortana. The findings were recently published as a comprehensive study on Stone Temple’s website.

    Thanks for sharing Justin and sorry about your friend. That must have been so nerve rattling when he is injured and you are rushing to get him help!

    Thanks Linda. She is ok. I actually laughed when I ended up at the wrong location..only because I relied so much on the directions and didn't check. It was really no benefit to me for Google to send me to a closed business.
