Microsoft's own next-generation version of Apple's Siri is called 'Cortana'

Microsoft is working on its 'Cortana' rival to Apple's Siri and Google Now, which will be integrated into all flavors of Windows in the future.

The story is too old to be commented.

Lol, that's pretty funny. In a good way.

That's fantastic.

I don't do any development on Windows Phones so I rather need my Android device for testing, but I won't lie, for the first time this makes me want a Windows phone.

This is actually awesome !

spicelicka1438d ago

That's so awesome, imagine if she throws in subliminal halo references, or goes rampant for a few seconds here n there, it would just be so cool (as long as she's not actually rampant and destroying your device lol).

mewhy321438d ago

Well I have to admit that's pretty awesome.

People have Windows Phones?

Is Cortana the future AI threat of the human race?! O.o

Is she going to have an army of sentient beings taking over the universe??

I'd rather have Jarvis from Iron Man.

"Power at 400% capacity."

Psss...KITT from Knight Rider says hi.

nukeitall1438d ago


That is such an ironic statement. You can never exceed capacity, if you do, that is the capacity!

Hence, you can never achieve more than 100% capacity!

PSVita1438d ago (Edited 1438d ago )

Calm down nukeitall.. it was a quote from a fictional superhero movie...

Campy da Camper1438d ago

I'd rather have Wheatley from Portal2. Snyde attitude and all.

@Big_B0SS HAHA, love it!

KITT's voice sounded like the voice of an evil peadophile demon!

Yeah that's some straight up fan service. MS taking some ques from the Japanese, nice.

Siri - "is that Halo? I didn't see that coming"

Cortana - "that's because your stupid, everyone knows Halo is all things Microsoft"

Siri - "Oh dear your rude"

Cortana - "wah go cry in a Starbucks corner"

Siri "?"

KillerPigeon1438d ago

Are you suggesting that both Microsoft and Apple are illiterate, and incapable of using 'your' and 'you're' in the correct context?

Big_B0SS1438d ago

@Killer Pigio - Whu U so mean?

Where's all of the outrage about Microsoft ripping off Apple? If this situation were reversed, people would start an internet holy war over Apple ripping off Cortana.

Good thing this is here rather than techspy; it's pretty obvious what their response would be:

"Apple never innovates! Look; here's an example of something kinda similar to Siri from 1998 that never took off and didn't work very well! See! Those hacks at Apple! Microsoft has totally taken the concept and flipped it on its head for the better, making it innovative. God I love Microsoft. They're so awesome. Only Apple rips things off"

nosferatuzodd1438d ago

Lol yeah Microsoft is awesome at looking around at every company and steal a little from them windows phone not selling og Microsoft now you're going to make a computer girl strip for its users hope it catches on lol

SilentNegotiator1438d ago (Edited 1438d ago )

It's impressive that you can see my composure through the internet. /s
But I understand that creating a preconceived notion (such as a frenzied emotional state) of someone that you disagree with is easier than debating the person...not that you're doing so, I'm sure.

If you think that all of the exclamations and quick sentences in the pseudo-quote is a sign of me in some state of excitement, let me help you understand something; what I did is called "satire" with the assistance of "hyperbole"

I'm no apple person, but I think the hypocrisy of zealous Apple-haters needs to be addressed.

darthv721438d ago

maybe there is no outrage because between the two AI's...Cortana is the sexier of the two.

just a hunch.

on a similar note. is this a bad thing? i kind of wished my GS2 had a voice that responded to my verbal commands.

the closest i get is my wife on the other end of a call and she doesnt always respond in kind, but that's another story.
