err... Google calendar is in no way the same functionality wise as iOS/Apple reminders.
Reminders is a "to do" list that you can check off, and also lets you create shopping lists etc that are re-useable.
Being able to create them entirely with Siri is a very nice bonus as well.
I get the whole google integration part as I am a google user. iOS reminders is remarkably good and simple and "just works" for "list" type things. It is the only thing that makes me productive some days, so it is very important that I find a "same/as" or "very similar to replacement.
