I think this Is a fantastic new feature from google: Google Now!
But I am a little worried.

Unfortunatly I won’t see this on my phone for now. (HTC Desire S.) I know that its on any phone running the android Jelly Bean devices. I really hope I am able to get it only my HTC desire S, running Android Gingerbread.

 

My worry: How dependant are we going to become on Google?  Think about it. If we start using this and start relying on it, we’re in trouble. Allready I am in a bad mood when I can’t get to the internet when I want to. This upsets my day. For something as mobile as Google Now! on your phone, I can only see that stress being a whole lot worse when there is and internet blackout. Or worse, no Google access.
