If Siri was an Android computer

Recently successfully backed on Kickstarter: the voice-activated computer Ubi which connects online via wifi once it’s plugged into a power socket and helps you do stuff like search the Internet, set the alarm and call your friend. Sounds familiar? Uh huh, we want to test-drive Ubi and Siri on the same commands to see which is faster. Then again, with its home connectivity, Ubi — the brainchild of a Toronto-based team — has the potential to wallop Siri with stuff it can do that Siri can’t, such as adjusting temperatures and lights.
