    A kid made a siri app on android and released it a few weeks after the siri announcement was first made. Your argument is invalid. https://market.android.com/details?i...ssistant&hl=en

    Your missing the point. If you search for something with Siri, say for instance, a company's phone number and or location, Siri will give you the exact info you want. This means you are not seeing all of the ads and sponsored links (which Google makes it's profits from) like you would see if doing a traditional google search. Siri cuts out the "middle man" in this case, and google is the middle man.

    I'm not saying Siri is a "google killer", but eventually could make a impact on page views and ad revenue.

    I wouldn't call that Siri. That'd be like calling tofu a filet mignon.

    Please.... This is no different from what Apple is doing.Business wants to create something as close to monopoly as legally allowed, when someone threatens this no matter how small they are you try to stop them.
