Wow, Google now is amazing. I got a new phone for my birthday (android) and installed a bunch of new apps. One of the is Google now. I didn't know much about it, I was just trigger happy app installing.
Later in the day I was out and about with the family. I turned my phone on to use google maps.. omg, not only did it tell me the temperature, how to get where I need to go, but where I parked, how long I'd walked for, reminders from emails and other insanely clever tid bits that blew my mind.
I just 'need' the google watch now.
Google now = fantastic
