      The dog is the god of frolic
    Although Hounds do rule the dog world, this isn't about dogs.  For those users who are stuck on Ice Cream Sandwich (Ex: Centura) and may not be able to use Google Now, I came across a new Siri/Google Now/Google Voice Search-like personal assistant/voice search app yesterday.  Its still in beta but seems to work pretty well.  The link to the article is below.  Its by invitation only right now but you can request an invitation (2nd link) to get it.  I requested one yesterday morning and by mid to late afternoon got an invitation and was able to download the app.  Its for Android 4.03 and above.  Thought this might be useful for users like me whose operating system is still stuck in the stone age...

    After playing around with it, seems to be a little faster than Google Voice Search...Seems Google can do the simple questions better but Hound can do more complex questions which Google can't do... 

    Here's a video testing Hound vs. Google side-by-side:
