Photograph showing Apple Newton hand held comp...Whether you feel it’s a cut above or a step too far, one thing about Google Now that’s undeniable is its incredible response time to user questions. In a new video from Business Insider, editor Steve Kovach provides us with what he calls “definitive video proof” of Google Now’s superiority to Apple’s Siri.

As a committed member of the Apple faithful, my immediate reaction was to recoil at such an assertion. However, after watching the video for myself, it was hard not to acknowledge the impressive speed with which Google’s new virtual assistant turned a user question into a specific, audible answer, all with a single touch on the screen. Meanwhile, though Siri is still an impressive iPhone feature, the video seems to make clear which company is playing catch-up now.
