Nuance envisions a non-so-distant future in which smartphones are always listening

by: Andrew GrushSeptember 24, 2012
Ever heard the old saying, "the walls have ears?" Apparently smartphones have ears as well at least if Nuance has its way.

Google Now vs Siri – Jelly Bean search defeats once again Apple’s voice assistant [video]
