    In the keynote Joe asked what the story was for the next Halo game and Cortana responded by saying that he probably doesn't have the correct security clearance for that information, so my guess would be yes you can.
    That sounded quite staged..they had the voice actress on standby.

    The real question should be - will grown men fall in love with their digital assistant (movie: HER)

    youre using a phone, using google chrome, ie, firefox.. you are already being tracked with your cookie crumbs. You have social security, state ID, drivers license, license plate on your car--- cops can track your records with any of those.

    Ever hear of FISA courts? Microsoft and every other tech company out there is sharing your info with the government. If you think there's another company who would (even be capable of) completely protecting your privacy you are extremely nave, my friend.
    To make it clear to those who may misunderstand this, they (tech companies) are required to do so by law at the request of the Federal Government. The tech companies are usually monetarily compensated.

    I tried it in the emulator and got the same response, so unless I had the voice actress on standby as well then it wasn't staged.

    It's a balancing act everyone has to do, between privacy and convenience. Personally, I lean way more to the privacy side of things (I don't mind the slight inconvenience of having to add things to the calendar by hand).

    Like I've said I could care less what they can see, as many perverse messages and pictures me and my chicks send back and forth i say enjoy the show ;-)

    Your face depending on where you live and how often your out gets ran through a data base at least once a day. If you were born in the late 90's your DNA and fingerprints have been on file sense the day you were born. Get over it and enjoy life or move to the woods. For it all to make sense go to the official UN website and read agenda 21

    The issue that stinks to me is most of the sheeple do not care that NSA and other Fed Govt Agencies have a blanket search warrant through the FISA Court for millions and millions warrant-less searches of citizens of the USA and people are worried about Microsoft, Google and other private identities. lol

    Agenda 21 and the UN just flew over about 80% of the people's heads on here, they have no idea of what a controlled society awaits them, they are just sheeple.

    Carrier IQ in the simplest terms is a key logger, used to track usage of the phone for purposes "of making software better" it was/is the carrier not the oe doing it, Verizon and AT&T the biggest user of it. Search XDA there's long threads on it over there.
    Wrong. It's supposed to be diagnostic software, hidden from the user, installed on various Android devices which cannot be removed. It is now classified as a rootkit and a security risk. AFAIK it isn't installed on Windows Phones or iPhones.
    No your wrong and it can be removed. Search xda developers

    I may not know alot about the ijunk and WP but I know android been rooting and moding sense the OG days and still have quite a few android phones G2 Gpro HTC one and nexus5
    Yes I know exactly what it is and what it does, it also key logs, as well as the ability to control functions of the phone, the mic camera excetra. This has been discussed in depth on xda and how to completely remove it from the infected apks. Most people have no clue what it does, its far more then what IQ web page tells you, after people started to figure out what it did they backpedaled and said they would remove it because it wasn't hard to find out if you had it on your device, the early versions of it you could see it in the system apps, then they hid it in one app, people figured that one out, called them out on it and then they broke it up, I remember my note 2 it was in the SMS, dialer, and alarm apk. Carrier IQ is a huge invasion of privacy because it loggs absolutely everything your phone does.
    This isn't Google, so I trust Microsoft with my "privacy". And they won't send it to the NSA. And even if they do, they'll just see someone staring at a screen...

    ​Is Carrier IQ still in use?

    AFAIK it is on older handsets, not sure about newer ones. It's only used by American carriers if it's still in use.

    Cortana reminds me of some scary cyborg from a sci-fi show. It learns what you do, where you go, who you are, who and what you know, something that no piece of technology should ever know about you (No, I do not use Facebook).

    I'm going to get my WP 8.1, turn off the location services,turn off all of the Cortana tracking features (Hopefully this can be done), and enjoy 8.1. I hate to disable the best feature WP 8.1 has, but I value my privacy over a nice-looking app that talks.

    The last thing I want MS to do is send my location data, people I know, etc to the government...

    By the way, thanks for crashing my profits, MS... (Signature). I guess i'll have to work on a Cortana exploit to make up the loss.
    Cortana's Notebook to your rescue..!!
    You can always delete what Cortana learns about you..??
    I hope You knew about it.!

    You shouldn't worry about Cortana, the moment you turn your cell phone on you are being tracked, connect to the internet on your PC or any device your are be tracked, data mined and your info is being sifted. And even worse being stored by the NSA indefinitely, it used to be stored for 5 years now it is indefinitely. Not only that when you enter many areas with cameras and video you can be found with facial recognition systems, the only way you are not going to be tracked is living in the wilderness, never using any device that connects to a cell tower or the internet.
    good idea, better order my backpack and knife off amazon.

    Lol.

    Just because someone doesn't care, doesn't mean their sheeple. I heard all about this stuff ten years ago, a I really don't care one bit. Privacy is a pipe dream. Get use to it and enjoy the ride. If you don't like it you can always go live in a cave.

    That brings up a question about the Notebook. If it's saved locally, how will Cortana sync information across devices? Does the Notebook need to be built on each device? If the Notebook is synced between devices, then it's also in the cloud, or at least transferred through the cloud.
