    So try "tell me a joke" - she has got new jokes updated now.
    Try "You are stupid" or "You are *****" and she has more witty come backs now!

    Tried these two so far but will let you guys see if you get any Easter eggs for yourselves ;)

    I guess this is good, but I'd rather they spend more time working on the synthesized voice and less time working on the gimmick pre-recorded stuff.

    Gimmick pre-recorded stuff will keep Cortana in news.

    Can't say I really care about it being in the news, I care about how useful it is for me. Improving the synthesized voice helps that. Pre-recorded lines don't.

    Bahahaha, nice. :)

    I ask her to tell me a joke every now and then.

    I don't like insulting her... What if she gets mad?

    I'm pretty sure that are working on both.

    After recording phonemes they're isn't really much Jen Taylor could do for voice synthesis. She could be used for something else, like chit chat.

    Do you think that only one thing could be worked on at a time?

    I guess someone forgot to tell Microsoft that it's all about you.

    Pretty sure that exactly that - any time she spends working on these pre-recorded lines IS time that she can't spend recording phonemes (which take a TON of time). The synthesized voice has little 'Cortana' influence. It's a slightly tweaked version of what we already had in 8.0. I do want it to sound more natural and more like the pre-recorded stuff (especially for when it's supposed to seamlessly be switching between the two like for voice dictation of texting). That requires a lot of recording that these gimmicky answers take away from.

    Sure, that's EXACTLY what I said in my two posts above where I said "this is good, but I'd rather" something else. Do I really need to say in my opinion after each post? Aren't we at the point where that's a given?

    It should get to you soon enough. That backend stuff rolls out slowly.

    Oh Man! That's so awesome! If she gets such new lines every week or two she might become the next big thing pretty soon!

    I told cortana she's stupid. She answered back "blame it on the solar flares!" This girl has some attitude!

    Cool, I wonder how this actually works. Is somebody monitoring everything that is being asked, and then responses are generated and stored for that question for the future? Is Cortana learning on her own and getting smarter without us!?

    My wife texted my yesterday"what the hell is rampancy". Apparently Cortana told her she was in early onset rampancy, lol. When she asked her what rampancy was she replied that it had something to do with a blue screen and a reboot won't fix it.

    It still tells me pretty much the same 10 jokes. Also, when I say "another one" it doesn't understand like it was advertised to
