TellMe vs Siri

Microsoft executive sticks his head in the sand again. Chief Research and Strategy Officer Craig Mundie had this to say about Siri:

People are infatuated with Apple announcing it. It’s good marketing, but at least as the technological capability you could argue that Microsoft has had a similar capability in Windows Phones for more than a year, since Windows Phone 7 was introduced. (…) You can pick ‘em up and say ‘text Eric’ and say what you wanna say and it transcribes it. You can query anything through Bing by just saying the words. I mean, all that’s already there. Fully functional, been there for a year.

So someone went ahead and made a comparison video.

Because you know, it has to be “good marketing”. Siri just can’t be a better product, right?
