Commentary by Stephen Downes

Google has just launched an elegant product called Google Now that could become a staple of my smartphone. Basically, it is a context-aware search that links to Google services via 'cards' (makes me think of the old Palm Pre operating system). So, for example, I searched this morning for Canaduan Tire, and when I open Now (one swipe, bottom up) I see a map with a route from my current location to the store. Nice.
