Microsoft Touts Cortana Over Siri in New Ad [Video]

Posted July 28, 2014 at 7:03am by iClarified · 14211 views
Microsoft is touting Cortana, its new personal assistant, over Siri in a new ad entitled, 'Happy Anniversary'.

Say hello to Cortana, your new personal assistant. Cortana will remind you to leave early to beat traffic and help you get to your destination on time, will remind you that you need milk when passing the grocery store, and will remind you to say happy birthday when your mom calls. Available now on the new Nokia Lumia 635 and on other Lumia phones.

Interestingly, while Cortana only runs on Windows Phone at the moment, Microsoft is considering the idea of bringing it to iOS and Android.

Take a look at the video below...

Siri sounds like a moron compared to Cortana. I'm switching over to windows. Microsoft rocks...late to the party but sure makes up for it in innovation. isheep can hate all you want. Baa Baa no one cares.

Cortana is another wannabe after three years of Siri, another knockoff in general. I'm staying to the simple and secure side compared to wannabe and cluttered tile tasteless texture less crap. Microscopic brains at shattered glass, who wants to waste the time to put in getting used to the confusing layout, I'm still on 7. Late to the party unprepared like Dill Baits was, that's why Balmer left but makes up for trying to be Siri just to get what has been made before but on a cheaper way. Microscopic brainwashed sheeps can show their jealousy all they want, B-a-a-a-a b-a-a-a-a no one gives a damn.

@Don't fool before checking: don't be negative try it and you'll like it. You'll feel like you are with a Virgin, not an old whore like siri. Cortana is young and willing to do a lot more for you. Siri is an old bag of tea with wrinkes up her ass.

And now we have two defenses of the shattered glass worshippers. Like I said about it compared to whoever uses the latest version, it's quite obvious juding by the looks, still the slow catching up unwired shit with bsod written all over it. You feel like you're on your period again with a rash you can't reach, not a homo like cortanass. Cortana is young as a youth and has work compared to someone older than her as a boss even older than a child like you. Siri is a professional boss with agents for protection aka the security with smooth skin compared to a baby.

You make coming to this site more enjoyable everyday...just reading your stupid defense for any subject matter is hilarious. Keep up the good work my dear chap!! I love your work. Ha Ha

I hate how siri now uses bing what a bad move from apple. Bing is SHIT go back to google search! No freaking rational person uses bing to search for anything legit. Its like you going to a doctor and the doctor gets his information about your illness from wikipedia! common!

Maybe it's because it's set to it.
theothertruth - July 29, 2014 at 3:41am
also apple, i know the rest of the world of productive people would agree with me on this. but WE DONT WANT A PHONE THAT WILL TALK TO US. we want a phone that will do exactly what we say! and if it doesn't know then just take a calculated best shot at searching the web for it. Don't say shit like "sorry i dont know that" Me: im not asking about you personally siri, just freakking look it up on the internet!!!! gawwwwwd!!! do I have to say "search google" EVERYTHINGFKINGTIME?!
thetruth - July 29, 2014 at 3:45am
yes and apple no longer allows you to change the Bing default search. I am stuck with bing unless i say "search google for..." its not hard to say those extra 3 words but why should i even have to? apple you are so rotten to the core because your hate for google bleeds over us!! they people who keep you alive!!
thetruthhurts - July 29, 2014 at 3:46am
Not as rotten to the soul over a freaking assistant. Why can't you jailbreak to change it then? It's not the end of the human race?
thetruth - July 29, 2014 at 4:02am
I could jailbreak yea, but man seriously, i love getting updates. and I hate having to go thru all the problems with trying to update a jailbroken phone. Trust me, I am a grandfather in jailbreaking. I've been doing it since the iphone 2G. Just recently I stopped jailbreaking and started following updates for my phone. you know some of my friends who still jailbreak, still have ios 6 on their iphone 4s or 5?! comparing their phones to mines? their phones UI's are ugly as hell! I like the feature to update! Jailbreaking for free apps and tweets seem useless now. I don't find myself ever really needing any of the tweeks nor playing any games. I have come to the enlighten realization that these mobile games are useless and a waste of my time and life! seriously guys stop playing games, I played candy crush until some ungodly high level (i can't remember which level exactly). but one day i decided i was bored and then i realized that i spent 100000 hours getting nowhere

@thetruthhurts...So you need to jailbreak your iPhone, in order to have a good working phone? Why it cannot just be a good phone right out of the box, like Nokia. Cortan is not dumb blond, Cortana is a smart brunnete

You need security to remove those crashes, for me I don't need jailbreak, my Siri is perfect compared to brunette bore-tana that's three years behine Siri continuing to play catch up, Siri is the real boss because of this. Lumpia isn't that even prepared to be out of the box, more like malware out of this shattered glass offered. Bore-tana is deep than you think in the sewers.

This is a Sheep yard why post it here?

To attract trolls to make them a place for their graveyard and to warn how much of a gullible shit they are choosing instead of a smart winner who focuses in themselves rather than worrying of he others knowing how better they are.

"Cortana"? Do they really see users saying "Cortana" to their phones? These are the folks who tried to top the 'verb' "to Google" with, "to Windows Live Search", as in "gosh Betty, lemme just Windows Live Search that". Brad Silverberg, wherever you are please come back.
