★★★★★ What Apple is that Telecom may have long (...) "AskWiki" focuses on this knowledge questions such as "When was Einstein born?" Or "How old was Johann Sebastian Bach?" And also contemporary issues such as "Who is the boss of BMW?" (Source: Mobilbranche.de)
★★★★★ AskWiki is quasi Siri for Android smartphones, "Who is Steve Jobs?" - With this bonus question for Siri I get on. And I am shocked. AskWiki shows me that there is an American entrepreneur, also shows birth and dying day. Siri is overwhelmed and replied, "I have found nothing to Steve Jobs." (Source: wuv.de)
