Similar to Siri, Cortana is the Microsoft’s latest virtual personal assistant for Windows Phone that is under testing. It is a seamless piece of technology that will detect queries so quickly that it will almost seem like magic to the users. It will reportedly come with Windows Phone 8.1
While partially this feature already exists on the Windows platform, in case of the Cortana it will be taken a giant step further. The new system is cybernetic in nature and can accommodate and adjust according to the demands placed upon it by the consumer. Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft spoke of this some time back. Cortana will be workable on the Windows Phone, Windows and Xbox One.
Microsoft is currently testing the technology. The list of notable features among its repertoire include: weather forecasts, daily reminders and calendar notifications. All this will be centralized on a single platform. Then there is regional navigation information and access to Bluetooth facility. Multiple Live Tiles and a Notification Center will be the main focal features on the Windows Phone 8.1.
The Cortana Personal Assistant will lend it that extra edge it needs to make a place for itself in the hearts and minds of tech consumers. With revolution replacing evolution on the fast-paced graph of postmodern times, the Cortana will go down as a major event in the history of electronic complexity.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
