    Cortana is certainly the most headline worthy new feature of Windows Phone 8.1, even though the OS update has much more than a personal assistant going for it. With comparisons to Siri and Google Now, the Halo-inspired voice helper garners some much needed headlines for Microsoft as they continue their entrenched battle in mobile.

That controversial position was later clarified in a follow-up comment on our site, alleviating some concerns of Windows Phone adherents.
    Today, in a second video, Ash explains the origins of Cortana's development, and how the team is "shocked by the international reaction."
