    Some of you might think "Hey, doesn't that name sound familiar?" Well...a recent leak from The Verge shows that Microsoft is currently working on an improved version of their digital assistant, aptly named "Cortana" from the Halo series.

    Definitely an interesting development. As someone who hasn't used or ever even seen a Windows Phone, it sounds like Microsoft is really striving to add popular features from iOS/Android to try and draw in the market. I'm curious to see how this ends up turning out, it sounds quite intriguing.

    Man I want a cool voice assistant. Can Android get Iron Man's J.A.R.V.I.S.?

    Odd... this is a leak? I'm absolutely sure that I've heard about implementing Cortana as Siri's eqivalent months ago, I just didn't think it was that much of a big deal... :unsure:

    Who cares really? After TomTom, Siri, Google Now, S-Voice and whatever else crap that went before this I don't see how this is news. Good for WP users, but not really anything new.

    If I recall correctly, Google Now already responds if you call it J.A.R.V.I.S.

    PLOT TWIST: The project's name is CORTANA, but upon release we find out it's actually BURROUGHS, and she calls us "Master".
