SIRI is one different Virtual Assistant that changes how all the virtual assistants work, those we have seen and experienced to date. If the news from unconfirmed sources goes true, then Apple is really working hard to port SIRI on iPhone 4 and all its existing and upcoming models to give a total new look and feel to their devices with a software.
I came across an article from “Cult of Mac” which shows how Steve Jobs can give life to these words “willing to go thermonuclear war on this” and “this” stands to Android and Google. Thermonuclear war on Google ? What apple has and will come up with to make that happen ? And the Secret and Special Weapon that Apple currently have in its hand, SIRI the Virtual Assistant.
Steve Jobs took it personally, and told biographer Walter Isaacson that he was “willing to go thermonuclear war on this.”But what did he mean by that?
In a recent interview Google Chairman Eric Schmidt sees Apple’s voice assistant Siri as a “significant development” that could threaten the Web search giant’s business.
He noted that some publications had referred to Siri as Apple’s “entry point” to the search sector and a “Google killer”. He also backpedaled on earlier statements, saying he was “clearly wrong” when he said Apple and Facebook were not Web search competitors.
