    MSFT: No Plans To Monetize Cortana Yet, But We Do Want Her To Be Pervasive
    i have read that cortana may also land on ios and android...............what is the speciality of windows if ios and android has similar feature and moreover they never gave us siri or Google now and how can a google user or ios user will come to windows platform if ms keeps on providing the wp apps on their platform

    ms should definitely stop this.......for sake of wp phones

    Microsoft obviously doesn't have its heart in WP, why not just scrap it like some of them obviously want to do and put us out of the constant misery of being treated as less than dirt?

    I can see how iPhone users might use Cortana, but what's the point for an Android user? Cortana is more functional than Siri, but it's roughly similar to Google Now.

    And i bet it will work much better on those 2 platforms. Typical MS they will spend a **** load of time to make it perfect for them.

    Jesus Microsoft make Cortana work the way she should for your loyal WP users before giving it to the people who dont support Windows phone!!

    I'm sorry but google now is better then Cortana. Flashed the latest 4.4.3 AOSP rom on my G2 and within one day knew where I lived (exactly the address not "some street in Gainesville") and where I worked without me telling it. Accurately gave me weather for both locations and traffic. Cortana after 2months still has no clue where I work, cant get the weather right and cant even give me the street name I live on!!
    Oh **** that's right Microsoft is busy giving the rest of the world and its competition this halfassed personal assistant instead of making sure she works as intended for the market it was intended for in its first years launch.

    I love my 1520 and WP os but damn sorry whoever is making the calls at Microsoft when it comes to WP is clueless.

    Oh damn I forgot its BETA!!!!!

    And for those who continually say Cortana will be some kind of Trojan horse to lure ios and android users, what do you think they'll say when the see stuff like this?

    Lets all lose our minds over a rumour that's almost certainly false.

    And if its true, which it most certainly won't be at least for a year or three, so what, ms are playing the long game. Nothing to lose it over.

    I'm so leaving Windows Phone if that happens. Nothing's going to be special about WP anymore, and how the f*** are they gonna attract customers if they provide Cortana for every damn platform???? Microsoft is destroying itself...

    Cortana us software and Microsoft is first and foremost a software company.

    They don't care what we think,and don't care if you stay on WP or not..

    Microsoft has been going down since the format war that they lost.
    They backed the wrong horse in that race and lost millions upon millions and really never got over it,same for hdmi...

    Their phone division has been dying for a long time,and their Xbox division is in the same shape,merging the 2 is a last stop gap measure to revitalize both but it has done nothing for either. Both are failing,regardless of how good both really are.

    It's inevitable that Microsoft will sell off what software is the best to the other platforms,it can get it's primary product into more hands and make money,plain and simple

    Is that so hard to figure out though?
    "This user is at place x from 9 to 5 Mon-Fri, this must be his work place."

    And hell, Google Now is opt-in, if this scares you so much, don't use it.

    How stupid are you sport to think you whereabouts every day aren't tracked regardless if you use Cortana or Google.

    Learn to read and compression tard, my point is Google can figure out and tell me my address or at least the street name unlike Cortana who gives me so generic **** "some street Gainesville" I can ask her for my location and most of the time I get the same respons "some street" unlike google that will tell me exactly where im at.

    Well said. Hell look how long it took them to make the Xbox music tile transparent, 2 months and 3 updates.

    Wtf Microsoft your getting your *** handed to you by Android and apple and now your really thinking about pulling this ****? Guess you like being on the bottom like a *****.

    Indeed. Just my considering it, MS has managed to p*ss off a legion of fans. Just imagine the mass exodus to other platforms if Microsoft openly treats WP like a second class citizen...
