    We've heard stirrings and rumors about Microsoft's Cortana personal assistant coming to Windows Phone and possible Windows proper. Jen Taylor has been the primary voice actress for Cortana since Halo began in 2001. Microsoft released a new video for the Surface Pro 2 today, narrated by none other than Jen Taylor. I don't believe she's ever voiced an ad for Microsoft before.

    Personally I think this could be a fun little easter-egg/build-up for the new Cortana software.

    How does this not have any links!?! Worthless without links!

    Found this generic one though...

    Awesome! Now let's hope Microsoft uses her voice as the WP personal assistant!

    I agree that it's not very "Cortana", although for a commercial introducing the new Surface 2, IDK if "Cortana" would've made much sense.

    "Introducing the new Surface 2. Made with the latest in Forerunner technology."

    It is nice to hear Jen Taylor again, though.. I'm hoping having her voice this commercial is just a glimpse of what's to come.

    They should officially nickname the MS R&D group as the Forerunners. Then they could make that statement and be accurate!
