    HTC Ultra's 800$? Really? Looks like HTC got the pricing wrong, once again.

    Does any of you guys actually use Cortana? At all? The only purpose it serves to me is IDing music really, nothing else.

    I should be getting an ultra cheap Chinese smartphone in the next few days, for free! So, it's definitely going to be better than my L640. I certainly hope so.

    I have the Cortana app on my iPhone 7 Plus... I never launch it though. I just have it in my "Microsoft collection" of apps.

    Siri, I use daily.

    Now, why would you open an app to use a digital assistant whose functions are solely confined to the app being open (Cortana), when you have another assistant with system wise access where you don't need to have an active app open to use it (Siri)?

    I mean isn't it hard to tell how good Cortana is on iOS when she doesn't have and will never have the same level of access that Siri does?

    I used it to goof around for a while, then I got bored with it. My opinion is that AIs, in their current state, are pretty much useless at the moment.

    I use it for that and quiet hours.
    Occasionally, I use it to call someone hands free. Sports scores too.

    On iOS, it's only good for sports scores for me and it also tells me when the next game is, which is so needed for baseball games.

    Not a fan of kids myself. But in rare oscassion when I have to take care of them, I somehow manage just fine. I guess I'm good at find them occupations that don't really require my constat presence.

    There are some days where I wish I was still into AOSP...Hard to find what I want in Android these days...

    All OS are the same...The nightmares of being platform agnostic is that you never can find what you want mostly in one platform...

    I don't know, Windows 10 Mobile is in far worse state than Android. Especially on Insider Preview builds. And it's gotten quite boring as well. There hasn't been any new features or notable upgrades in a while.

    There's no bed of roses in Android either.

    I think for it to work, it really depends on what teams you want to follow. Cortana is set to US (since I live there), and since I'm following an American baseball team, it works very well when it tells me the final scores. I have always gotten scores from it every day there's a game.
