There is a question. For me, it’s the oldest question in the universe, but it’s hidden in plain sight.

Hands On with Cortana for Android

Hands On with Cortana for Android

When I heard that Cortana leaked, I wasn’t very impressed by it. Microsoft leaks all kinds of stuff all the time. Personally, I think it’s a shady way of marketing and I try to refuse to give it much attention. But then I installed it. It’s pretty good. Generally, it’s the same as it is on Windows 10 Mobile.

Why Cortana on iOS and Android is a Good Thing

By Rich W Woods We have been hearing rumors that Cortana would be coming to iOS and Android for roughly one hundred years. A couple days ago, they made it official. Windows and Windows Phone fans are mad. Hell, they were mad about the rumors, let alone the actual news.
