From everything I’ve seen it’s clear from the performance of Google Voice Search, that Apple is way behind in the area of voice technology.The performance difference between Apple’s Siri and Google’s Voice Search is like night and day.
Plus, Apple’s reasoning for not putting its digital personal assistant, Siri (even in its currently lackluster state), on as many of its devices as possible makes no sense. Apple needs to address this.
For example, why is there only voice dictation on Mac OS X10.8? Shouldn’t the full Siri come with Mountain Lion? They can’t claim lack of processing power or memory. And Siri should be able to perform at least as well as does Google Voice Search.
Perhaps now that Eddy Cue is taking over the additional responsibility of Siri and Maps, things on both technologies will improve.
