Default Tell Google Now To Do A Barrel Roll!

Probably not the right forum but I don't know where to put it. Anyway in case you didn't know you can make Google Now do a barrel roll. Anyone else know more easter eggs?

Is "Google Now" the only name for the voice assistant on android? It is not unique and search friendly. "Siri" is much better named.

I'd like to see a collection of commands to which "google now" (?) responds. Last night, as I was lying in bed, I sang to my Nexus 7, "Show me the way to go home." (continues with, "I'm tired and I want to go to bed.") I was surprised when Google's Siri, uh, GN showed me a map from where I was to my home (it was just a 15 meter walk...)

I tried several more, but most just took me to a google page. Two others did give me a voice response:
- What is tomorrow's weather?
female voice: "Tomorrow's forecast for Zushi is six degrees and clear." (Zushi is my hometown now.)
- Who is Oshima Yuko?
female voice: "Captain." (of AKB48)

After doing some more searches, complicated by google having google voice, which is itself confusingly named since there is a voice call ability within gmail..., anyway, I found these two page:

Actually shonangreg, Google Now is not the name of the voice search feature in Android. Google Now is google's attempt at an assistant that tells you the information you need to know when you need it, for example popping up info on traffic and it telling you that you need to leave earlier to make it on time to a meeting (because you've marked a meeting in google calender). Google Now just happens to have a google search box at the top of it for convenience.

So, does google's voice service have any name at all? Maybe google needs to hire a roving SEO specialist to advise the various departments on how they can best make their products searchable online, like you know, google's original business (@_@)
