Business News: Google catches up with Apple's Siri

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - Apple's Siri may have finally met her match.

Google's voice-based search service, Google Now, has improved enough in the past year to rival Siri.

Both were able to answer 79 percent of questions in a recent test.

A year ago, Google now scored 61 percent while Siri got 77 percent correct.



(CBS) - A new study shows that young women are increasingly earning close to what men make in comparable positions.

But the report by the Pew Research Center also says that women lose ground on salaries by the time they hit their mid-30's.

In part because many leave the workforce or reduce their hours to start families.

The research also shows women still face discrimination in the workplace.



(CBS0 - Get a load of this, someone in Florida has a serious sweet tooth.

They stole a truck full of Hershey's chocolate worth about $120,000 dollars.

The driver says the truck disappeared after he parked it for the night and that's when the thief made off with the goodies.
