Mice and fingers are expressive, but voice is how we express ourselves. Maluuba, a Canadian startup, is trying to integrate voice into the mobile experience. Yes, tech giants Google and Apple are already working on this, but lets leave some room for innovation and competition. Maluuba has partnerships for various tasks (Yelp for restaurants, Wolfram for general knowledge, etc.) and when your request falls into one of these areas, results can be great. Results can also be, well, surprising. It’s not as good at at repartee as Siri (“Tell me a joke”) and it’s not as integrated into my Android phone as Google Now, but I’m very happy to have Maluuba listening to me on my mobile.
