    Give it some time, Siri wasn't made overnight, Siri is actually very old and was bought by Apple.
    I'm certainly aware of Siris past (and how it had more function) and I'm aware of the state of Cortana. I'm just saying what I want from Cortana eventually.

    Edit: Cortana right now is being really janky for me at the moment. Anyone else experiencing problems? Earlier it was taking several seconds to just answer or fail completely. Then after that, it just wouldn't pick up a single thing I said correctly. I wanted to test out context by using "Who is the president?" then "who is his wife?" both of which I got a correct reply but I wanted to ask "what's their dog's name?" to which is wouldn't pick up and even changed dog to dawg. I was successful in a pizza query though going from find me pizza > which are 4 stars? > what are open? > map of the 2nd one > what time does it close? This was also a good test as the voice changed from TellMe to Jens voice throughout and in the last query changed almost every word when Cortana told me the restaurant was open until 10:30.

    I was hoping she'd be a little more context aware. She is when it comes to things like asking for a restaurant > pick option > give me directions to X. But for the most part, it's singular. For example, if you say "tell me a joke" she tells you the joke but if you then compliment her by saying "very funny" it'll simply search for very funny. Siri is actually pretty good at understanding the context of which something is said so while Cortana jokes about things being a little one sided in their conversations, Cortana is nothing one sided.
    At the moment, Cortana is utilitarian- the novelty of having "conversations" with Siri is fun, but I don't think we're really missing out on anything.

    Google returns nearly identical results for the above searches.

    You need to ask "Tell a joke"
    Hmmm....that worked BUT, in the press release for 8.1, Joe said "Tell me a joke"...and that still has problems for me....

    Do you have a contact called "Me"? I actually added myself as a contact to find my number quickly from a long time ago and after deleting it, asking Cortana anything reguarding me, now works as before it'd try to send a message.

    No, I do not have a contact named "me". The Funny thing, It tells me "cant find a contact number for <facebook contact>" then crashes when I ask "tell me a joke" This contact is FACEBOOK only, not in my local contacts and I dont have my facebook contacts shown on my phone.

    Odd problem, I would bet a bug but, no big deal I guess at this point, It's not like I am going to ask Cortana to tell me a joke every day or anything...

    Those all bring up the same generic I don't have an opinion/words fail me/you're on your own/etc responses. Some people still don't grasp this.
