Google Now Hits iOS: “Android Users Have Had this for HOW long ?!?”

Wow. It’s beautiful, has a creative UI, is crazy-fast, and is frighteningly intuitive about the information I might want. And the voice-recognition does indeed rock. I think I’m just going to leave it open on an iPad next to me all day, and let it handle all my utility searches for me…

That said, I’ve just reminded myself that I can get similar-ish voice input functionality from Mountain Lion by just double-tapping the `Fn` key when I’m in Chrome’s omnibox. But there’s a noticeable activation delay, you have to tap the button again to finish, then enter to search, and… well, Now is just much more fun…
