Google voice search….. what next?

Google is really pulling out all the stops when it comes to maintaining the lead in the online and marketing  world. Google has released an application that allows you to do a voice search on the new Apple iPhone. What this means is that you would be able to stand in the centre of, say Times Square or Camden Town, and ask your mobile "Asian restaurant". The phone would be able to direct you to the closest restaurant.

It works with GPS with regards to your location. Brilliant!! The search expands to a whole new list of advertising. What Google can do is charge businesses to expand their range of clientèle. This is the stepping stone to a whole new world in marketing. For more you can read the NY times on this new application.

With this new application and others around the world one is starting to think that the futuristic sci-fi movies are becoming a reality. What are we going to see next?, flying cars? We already see cars that can drive themselves are in the process of being mass produced, The 2008 Opel Vectra, Honda Accord ADAS and that’s just to name a few.
