No Need

Siri is a novelty at best, people have fun thinking up ridiculous things to ask it to see how stupid of a response they can get, but I've never met anyone who actually used it to do something, you know, useful.

Google Now is kind of fun, but it does quickly get somewhat creepy just how much it knows about you.

I am not convinced that the voice operated 'personal assistant' will ever be anything but a novelty. Blackberry does not need to jump on the bandwagon, but should continue to innovate with their own ideas. Indeed, the fact that both Android and iOS now offer something similar to 'Blackberry Balance' indicates that Blackberry can still come up with original, useful ideas that other companies can imitate. Blackberry will never achieve growth if they continue to follow rather than lead.
