Microsoft and Google should be afraid of Apple’s Siri

Tech.Pinions on why Google and Microsoft hate Apple’s Siri:

But the real reason these two companies hate Siri is because of what it will become in the very near future. In case you haven’t noticed it yet, Siri’s voice technology is actually a front to some major databases, such as Yelp, Wolfram Alpha and Siri’s own very broad database. But what it is really doing is serving as the entry point for searching these databases…

There is another smart and talking machine out there: Watson, the IBM room-size computer that won Double Jeopardy earlier this year. Imagine then what your iPhone 4S (so far) can answer you if Siri is aslo fronting the Watson database.
