    Nice read Imran. I've experienced that what Google Now can do differs from country to country. One of my biggest issues with it is that I use a mixed mode transport for my commute to work every day. I take my bike to the bus, which brings me to the subway, which I ride to work. Google Fit knows I'm riding my bike. But still Google Now keeps insisting I should walk, which makes for wrong predictions about the time I should leave and which busses or subways I should take.

    7 Be my Travel Guide

    Google Now already does this for me. When I was in Istanbul this summer, it was sensible enough to show me POIs that were around me, complete with testimonials of other Google users.

      Hey Woutner, Mixed mode of transport can be tricky for Google Now as you said. Didn't know about #7 being already there. It never showed me such suggestions to any place that I travelled. I think Google Now UX varies quite a bit from person to person.

    Do all of this without using my information for profit?

    I found the last two a bit sad. You say 'be more human' but I think thats what we should all be reminding ourselves to do these days rather than relying on phones to do everything for us and provide entertainment.

      Hmm.. It's a difference of opinion I believe. I actually don't mind technology doing everything for us. That doesn't make me stop talking to my parents or friends or go out. In fact, I am saying it should help me do these things better.

    Wow! I can't even imagine that Google Now allows doing so many useful things.
