MICROSOFT’S “SIRI” EQUIVALENT IS CALLED “CORTANA.” ARE THE BLUE JUB JUBS INCLUDED?
Yeahhh! Pig alert! I can’t help it (Yes I can, I’m just a piece of shit.) I want to swerve my swizzle stick all around Master Chief’s blue-bummed aid’s ass. Or something. What am I even talking about? So tired. Oh yeah! Being attracted to polygons. Cortana. Yum yum. Microsoft must know that I’m not alone, because they’re calling their Siri equivalent “Cortana.”
A feature headed to Windows Phone 8.1 may include Microsoft’s take on Siri, which uses a name that references the Xbox’s flagship first-person shooter franchise, ZDNet reports.
The feature is apparently codenamed Cortana, a reference to Halo’s AI companion. It will reportedly outperform Windows Phone’s current voice command capabilities and allow users to interact with the device using natural voice commands, like Apple’s Siri and Google’s Google Now. ZDNet’s sources also suggest that the underlying technology will also appear in other Microsoft products like Windows 8 and Xbox One.
