Voice Recognition Software

One theme of the class has been the user experience which forms the core of the value proposition in any business model. For devices, the importance of the user interface--how the user interacts with the device is critical. NY Times reports on Google's voice recognition software for mobile:

"The service can be used to get restaurant recommendations and driving directions, look up contacts in the iPhone’s address book or just settle arguments in bars. The query “What is the best pizza restaurant in Noe Valley?” returns a list of three restaurants in that San Francisco neighborhood, each with starred reviews from Google users and links to click for phone numbers and directions."

Note that it appears this software will come first on i-phone and then later with Android.
