Wow, looks great, unfortunately only available in US and here in rainy Germany, Google Now does not even show "Cinema Times"," Booking Reminders" (Hotel/Flights etc.) and all the other stuff.
I added all the features to show, but only get three things: a) weather information, b) time to travel to work or home and c) reminder to "start in x minutes to reach your event xy". And surely: "show sample cards".
That's all I can get on official JB 4.2.2 for SGS4 :-(
Sure, it's great Google offers those features free of (currency) charge, I'm thankful for all those great Google services, but in Germany everything is somewhat limited... no Streetview (due to some minor freaks protesting against it a few years ago??), no wait, that's not 100% accurate: no full coverage to be honest, there are a very very few cities covered, but it's nearly no coverage at all (and we're a very small country compared to some US-states), nearly no music videos on Youtube or videos featuring songs from mayor artists due to copyright or payment problems between Google and the GEMA, which means: most of the linked YT-Videos result in "Sorry, not available in your country".
And a lot of the Playstore-stuff posted on G+ is "not available in your country/US-only" too.
All in all that's very sad and I wish, Google would just start those services over here and not fear the politicians or whom ever too much. In other countries may be similar problems, especially regarding Youtube, but there should be (and are) options to do it anyway. Privacy is important, sure, laws are important, sure, copyright is important, sure, no doubt about that, but that can't be the reasons for not having all the Google Now features for example. I don't think that Google has technical limitations to provide those services, so I ask myself over and over again: why don't we get those features? What are the reasons? When will we get it? Will we get it?
I'm very glad that Goolge offers beta tests and online courses like "Map-making with Google" (Thank you very much!), which allow me to try some of their upcoming features or features available in other countries, but most of the stuff is "US-only" and I'm afraid that a lot will take a looooong time to arrive in Germany (if ever). But we can be glad, I won't complain, in other countries the Playstore does not even offer Nexus devices, so in this particular aspect, we can be glad. And we even got "PlayMusic" and "PlayMovies" - that's great too (although I do not use it actually, 'cause I prefer to buy or rent CDs, DVDs or Blu-ray-discs, but future may change this behaviour).
Anyway, all I want to say is: Goolge start over here in Germany, we're 80 Mio. people willing to get your stuff, 'cause we like it and we like you :-) Don't care to much about those few "IT-dinosaurs" who think they could decide what's wrong or right. They may be threatening, but they don't decide anything. Some 10.000s (all in all 100k or 200k) may not want Streetview, they demand courts and trials and prevention etc., they even fear camera smartphones, but nearly 80 Million people are waiting for it, want it and know the pros and cons, same with Google Glass or whatever.
And this could be the same in a lot of other countries too, I guess.
Don't wait for a decision, just do it and stop it if demanded.
