re: Google Now Update Improves Voice Commands
As cool as that would be I'm ready for this to be available on my phone.  It kills me now to try and use voice command.  I do the robotic "send text to Steve" and I get a Google search page with sandy Texas sieves.  I think they have a long way to go before I'm using it to dictate long emails but at least they recognize that there is a problem and they're making an attempt to fix it. 


Maybe one day we'll get real voice command functionality on our PCs but for now I'd be happy with my phone not assuming I'm an idiot.

Damn...
I was hoping the voice capability would be available on their normal website also.
Always wanted to either say "Computer...." or "Hal, open pod bay doors." to my laptop or desktop.

As much as I find Google Now interesting, I can't help but think of it as a crutch for those who are unable to manage daily life. So much of what Google Now does can be accomplished using your brain.
