"Go Butler": So will das deutsche Start-up in den USA überleben - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Ich habe keine Ahnung, wie die je profitabel werden wollen" [...] Andere Concierge-Services haben sich vom Gute-Fee-Modell bereits verabschiedet: Der amerikanische Konkurrent Magic verlangt seit Kurzem die happige Gebühr von 100 Dollar für jede Stunde, die seine "Magicians" an der Wunscherfüllung arbeiten. [ 61 Minutes] Heute verdient das Unternehmen 70 bis 80 Prozent seines Umsatzes mit Firmenkunden. Eine Beratungsfirma etwa lässt "Sixtyone Minutes" ihre gehetzten Consultants von lästigem Alltagskram entlasten.

For more than a decade, boxes have helped Google dominate search - both the rectangle on its home page and the web browser address bars that send users to its results.

What I Learned This Week About Tim Cook’s Apple | Re/code
[ always along the motto: extension of you, part of you. The new Apple under Jobs was NOT an overnight success! It build on its differentiation, strong base, a cult, a Tribe, 1000 True Fans, and build on it stride by stride. Most capitalistic company out of SV, no counter-culture out of largest corp on world. & can pull of iAd coup because it has monopsony! & Duopoly w Android. ] Many people love Apple, others despise it. But, even without Jobs, it cannot be ignored. There simply is no other company that combines such a high-quality hardware line with such well-regarded software platforms. A faltering Samsung has the former, but not the latter. A strong and admirable Google has the latter, but not the former. If you didn’t believe that before, this week’s event made it crystal clear, with once-bitter rivals like Microsoft and Adobe showing up onstage to boast about how well their products worked with new Apple hardware and software.

Facebook Built a ‘Personal Assistant’ Inside Messenger | Re/code
Facebook has a new, A.I.-powered Siri-like assistant tool in Messenger. It's called "M," and it's the company's latest effort in a battle with Google, Uber and others to be the artificial intelligence leader in Silicon Valley. // FB got AI lab in France, got money to invest, to diversify from other Messaging platforms - tcrn.ch/1N1rTSF &! tcrn.ch/1JCfs8Q --- can productise it! your personal assistant, for shopping - convenience - no clicking, not tapping, - M takes care of buying that item you saw in your stream. --- also keeps people inside Facebook! instead of leading them out to the shopping site/product site/... --- also expanding the category/vertical of the messenger you use. --- // // &! http://www.theverge.com/2015/5/28/8677147/google-now-on-tap-announced // &! tcrn.ch/1idSz5R

Staff Exodus, Pressure From Microsoft, Apple Hit Google Now | Re/code
According to multiple sources, their initial vision of Now — as a mobile assistant tailored to particular users — works best living on the mobile operating system, not within search. Also, Google is a political place and search is Congress. Big, necessary, stodgy. [...] “‘Look, I’ve got a lot on my plate. Chrome and Android are my top priorities. Google Now is not on that. I can’t fight that battle for you.’” [...] Apple, for its part, looks prepared to launch a competitor to Now on Tap. With its proactive assistant and spotlight search, the Apple entry could elbow Google out. // // Amazon released a (SW/HW)PA for the living room, Apple got Siri & just recently launched its own integrated search engine called "Spotlight" & Google released Google Now (voice activated search in response to Siri) and at last Google I/O, Now on Tap [ Now on Tap will solve app developers’ nagging issue with discovery. ] And FB just came out w an assistant product for Messenger. // &! bit.ly/1JYeNCT

Gary Morgenthaler Explains Exactly How Siri Will Eat Google’s Lunch | TechCrunch
Then comes the question of what solves our biggest problems. Ultimately, Siri’s value is that of automation and removing “friction” on the Internet. Siri achieves this by: (1) understanding speech input in natural language form, (2) mapping user requests against its knowledge base (i.e., ontological domains) and (3) activating software “agents” to interact with Internet service providers to fulfill user requests.

All this is easier said than done. User problems in using the Internet are amplified on mobile devices because their screens and keyboards are small and cumbersome — and page downloads are slow.

Siri removes these frictions. It eliminates thumb-typing entirely, and it dramatically reduces the number of page downloads. In this sense, Siri finally and truly enables the mobile Internet.
