    Microsoft's Cortana digital assistant was first announced two years ago today | Windows Central

    Cortana is growing up so fast Feels like only yesterday we helped her take babysteps.

    Now that the emotional stuff is out of the way.... I was just wondering how you guys have been using Cortana so far?

    Has she been "wonderful" or "dreadful"? useful or useless? and why? the "why" is always important

    Not towards her ;-)

    The fact that Apple and Google have had their personal assistants available here long before Cortana was even available in the U.S. , and that Cortana is still M.I.A. , despite being available in other countries that speak the same languages as people speak here...

    It's all about MS and their inability to roll things out internationally... everywhere... in a reasonable amount of time. Just another one of the many MS related problems.

    Cortana: available in less than a dozen countries
    Bing rewards: available in a few countries
    Lumia rewards: few countries
    Camera grip for 1020 - available in a few dozen countries
    Skype minutes: 60 countries leaving out 120+
    Surface devices : a few countries
    Lumia 950: available in less than 30 countries which wide price variations (950 in my country, Kenya, is 650USD while in Canada as I have heard is 1000USD)

    MS does have a distribution problem.

    Eh this one irks me as well.. Not to hijack my own thread, but yea I have to agree with the sentiment. Ever since joining the WP game, I've wondered why MS doesn't just try to focus on the countries which seem to have bought into the WP life instead of trying to win the battle in the US, start winning it internationally and return back at full strength at some point.
