Google has a new version of its search app, and its capabilities go well beyond answering bet-settling questions like, "What's the capital of North Dakota?"
Most impressive is the enhancement of Google's voice search, which means you can mumble some semi-coherent query into your phone while driving, and it will come back with a worthwhile answer. This is true for a lot of things -- movie times, for instance, or stocks -- but we were most interested in how it applies to golf.
So using only voice recognition, we gave it a whirl.
First, we started with the weather, since we needed to know if it was at all playable this week.
OK, not great, but we're a hardy bunch, so we'll give it a go. Then we needed to nail down where.
And how to get there.
Perfect. Now, we needed some inspiration.
Very cool, but that's not really my reality. This is.
__And when things get a little sideways, I sometimes need help with the math.
And yes, I'll admit, I need better ways to deal with my frustration.
Eventually I realize I just need to relax.__
