'Google Now' vs 'Siri'

Apple's Siri was and is a big deal, as the first serious mass-marketed move towards the sort of "talking computers" we experience in sci-fi stories. Siri appears to have a bit of personality; "she" may joke, and be conversational at times. In other countries, Siri is a "he", hence the gender-neutral name. Well, Google has introduced it's own voice-activated companion - Google Now - with it's new version of the Android mobile operating system. First indications are that Google Now is all business, but may actually work better than Siri in some areas. Let the battle begin!
