"Virtual Assistants": predicting what you want before you want it

 Smart phones can already help keep your life organized but the companies that make them are really trying to up the ante right now.

They're making virtual assistants so smart, they know what you want before you do!

The IPhone's "Siri" is perhaps the most well-known assistant on earth or actually, the most well know virtual assistant.

Siri does everything from setting reminders and events to helping with directions and internet searches.

Other phones have virtual assistants too and they are starting to get really cool or perhaps hot is better.

Android's version is called "Google Now". 

Windows' phones use "Cortana" and the latest versions do more than just help with things you ask them to do.

They actually predict what you want before you want it and they'll learn your route.

The systems learn your habits, wants and needs and then try to help you.

But if predictive pattern learning virtual assistants really catch fire in 2015 like many analysts predict it's a pretty good bet Apple will find a way.

Until then you have plenty of options if you really want a true digital helper.
