    Hands on with Cortana, Windows Phone's digital assistant

    You see cortana reminding you even during a text which we have not see the UI when that is happening. Should be the same for a email as well :)

    Yeah that was hiliours. Going to be great to see ads on this later. Not to mention that everyone that have a WP phone will want to brag/show off there phone to iPhone/google users. this feature is no gimmick.

    I think it was kind of funny that the reporter wasn't sure where to put the mic. It's a piece about how the different products work. The PHONE is talking, put the mic near the PHONE. ;-)

    It's pretty funny , check it out ...
    Microsoft's new digital assistant may have more attitude than Apple's rather prim Siri. However, on the "Arsenio Hall Show," the two ladies get at it with abandon.

    What sort of video is this? It doesn't run on IE11. I am not downloading another browser to be able to view this. I tried other videos on the site and seems none of them want to play. Is this a region locked website or just lame video format?

    It worked for me on IE8 (which is what I'm stuck with at work). Have you tried running it in compatibility mode?

    Works fine in IE 11 on my pc. Tracking Protection might be blocking the video.

    Glad to hear that you fixed it. Tracking Protection blocks a lot of ads as well as videos.

    Wow. That is a very cool demo, the best I have seen so far of how contextual her actions can be. I am getting super excited about this.

    I'm using Firefox and I had to refresh the screen once before it would play. On the video though, Cortana is gonna be awesome to have on my phone.

    I'm on IE 9 (work computer) and I could not view it, it said video unavailable. Opened in Firefox, no problems. I need to have one fully updated browser at work, and I wont use Chrome....

    Very cool video, liking what it can do, I just hope it works that well in the real world...

    I've never had issues with Firefox as such until the recent builds have made it a memory hog! I run really memory intensive programs on my PC and can't have a browser take a slice from that pie! IE10, IE11 and Security Essentials in last 2 years have never let me come across a single virus or tracking website. It really feels like "new web".

    Yall better get on topic real quick before Laura comes in here an shuts it down.

    On topic, I never knew google now actually speaks the language and for siri you had to press a button for it to speak

    I wonder if cortana has support for more languages because gnow is pretty limited

    Same here. Firefox used to be the browser I used the most. It has become unstable for me in recently (like 1 year back) I now use chrome for school, IE for personal, and Safari for my iMac.
