Windows 10 & Cortana

So the new Windows 10 has launched and we have been looking at some of the features it offers on a lighter note rather than the boring techy stuff we normally do.  Here is how you can interact with your device however you want.

Touch, Type, Write or Speak: the choice is yours, so you can use whatever works best for what you’re doing.

 Touch

Do things like write on a web page, swipe through your photos and snap apps into place.

Type

When you need to get more done, use your keyboard or the touch keyboard on devices with touch

Write

Use a pen to draw naturally, or add notes to files, sign documents, or play around with art apps

Speak

Just by talking, you can ask Cortana to set a reminder or write an email, and chat with friends or family on skype.

 

Cortana’s got plenty of sass. When being asked questions, Cortana’s answers may come of a surprise, for example:

 “Who’s your daddy?”

Technically speaking that’d be Bill Gates. No big deal.

“What do you think of surface?”

In a sea of tablets there is only one that rises to the surface.

“Who’s better, Google Now or Cortana?”

My name is a lot less bossy.

“Beam me up scotty”

Aye, Aye, Captain.

“Tell me a joke”

Why did the hipster burn his mouth on his coffee? Because he drank it before it was cool.

“Sing me a song”

Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do.

“Can I change your name?”

What if I started calling you Thumbs?  Let’s stick with what we’ve got.

“How do I look today?”

What, are you kidding me? You’re a knockout!

“What do you look like?”

So do you think Cortana will be better than Apples Siri? Let the contest begin.
