I don't see the "knowledge graph" carousel in my everyday use of google.  In fact, I have to try specific searches (movies, sports teams, etc.) to make it appear.  I think it will have a bigger impact in mobile search, if they ever get around to pushing it there.

So the updates to jelly bean for Nexus S phones (that's the older nexus model) are also removing the unified search features. I thought Google might take an aggressive stance and allow jelly bean to keep the device results feature, but it appears the injunction is having a broader impact than the OS and phones specified in the litigaton.

My daughter and I want to join this suit. Siri rarely works for us other than to set an alarm. We share Siridiculous stories on a daily basis.
"When is my flight to LA?" Siri: "Sorry I can't help you with flights";
"Turn on bluetooth" Siri: "Daren, I don't understand "turn on bluetooth";
"Can I tether with this phone?" Siri: "With whom would you like to speak?"
"Can you find a Sudoku app for me?" Siri: "I don't know what you mean by 'can you find a sudoku out Forman?"
"Need to send an email to John Cole" Siri: "I don't see 'John' in your contacts...perhaps you meant one of these 34?"
Not sure how extensively Apple tested Siri, but it is not at all clear what she understands and what she doesn't.

I've been fascinated by the concept of 3D printing.  However, most of the examples I find are usually something extreme like a violin or a grandfather clock.  Well, I just found something basic (headphones) and it was done on a consumer 3D printer.  A real, working set of over the ear headphones that were "printed" (+ some basic parts from radio shack).

"Samantha" from Nuance is SIRI! Check it out. I am very surprised that Apple did not create a proprietary voice for Siri. Instead it appears anyone can use Samantha SIRI in their apps.

The "Maged" voice is funny.

I think the focus of Google's PR effort is all wrong here. The semantic search stuff should be used in their mobile and TV products -- where web pages are not relevant. What is Google's algorithm for the relevance of an app? or of a movie? Is it the page link analysis from webpages containing the name of the app? I think they need to talk about how this new semantic analysis can help Google where no one really cares to look at a bluelink to a webpage.
