    Why do we have to say "Okay Goggle" before we can get it to do anything> I think whichever company lets you assign a name to your AI assistant first is going to win all the marbles. Have none of these people seen Ironman?

    okay, without using 'google' to search for ironman, what is it?
    out were I live, there aren't any 'ironmen' around except for the ones who pick up salvage metals.

    Ironman is a movie in which industrialist Tony Stark is kidnapped after exhibitng new wepons to the US military in a middle eastern country. HIs kidnappers hide him in a cave and demand that he build weapons for them. While builing weapons he cobbles together an iron weaponized suit which allows him to escape. Upon his return to the States we are introduced to JARVIS his AI assistant which he can speak to simply by saying his name. More nonesense follows and results in what is now known as the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

    I want to call my AI assistant Jeeves. Here's an example of what I'd like to be able to do; While getting dressed for work I'd like to be able to say "Jeeves when is the next bus that can take me to work coming?" and have my phone answer. Not "Okay Google, look up when the next bus is arriving that can take me to work.."

    You really want to "Ask Jeeves" instead of Google ?

    I looked it up; "Ask Jeeves" has been dead for over 6 years. The butler has retired. WTF is a question and answer search engine? I don't think I ever used one.
