It is reported that Microsoft's answer to Siri is their very own Cortana. Cortana, of course, from the Halo series is being programmed into the next wave of Windows phones, Windows, and the Xbox One. According to ZDNet Cortana, “will be able to learn and adapt, relying on machine-learning technology and the "Satori" knowledge repository powering Bing.” The programming will come standard as to no extra charge once purchasing the device. Windows phone currently has basic voice command but not a system that "thinks for one self" like Siri. Cortana has not officially been announced by Microsoft, but I will keep you updated as I get more information.
What do you think? Does the added gaming flair and familiar face have you running to buy a Windows phone? Does this even matter or is the phone what is important? I can tell you this, no matter who made the phone if the voice system was Miranda from the Mass Effect series I would pay any amount of money for it.
