Google Now Fails To Acknowledge Apple’s Former CEO

People seem extremely interested in the things their voice assistants say. In fact there are even entire websites dedicated around the humorous things that Siri says, even though a lot of the things the applications say may not be intentional by the creators.

A Reddit post today on /r/android has pointed out that if you search, “founders of Apple” on Google’s new voice search on Jelly Bean, it lists Ronald Wayne, Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs. However the voice which accompanies the results says, “Apple Inc was founded by Ronald Wayne, Steve Wozniak and others”, ignoring any mention of Steve Jobs.

The source of the information, like many of the results given by Google Now, are taken from Wikipedia, so it’s probably just an innocent mistake that the voice fails to mention the late Apple CEO.
