Cortana Move over, Siri, here comes Cortana

According to a report from Eurogamer, Microsoft is readying Siri rival Cortana for Xbox One, PC and Phones.

This could be the most brilliant creative decision MS has made recently.

Speaking from my personal experience back with Windows Phone 7, the voice features seemed much more functional than what Siri can currently do on my iPhone 5, but they lacked personality.  Even if you have no history of Halo, the voice over actress who plays Master Chief’s virtual assistant does a fantastic job (there’s a reason she’s a fan favorite).  Cortana should be a wonderful addition to the mix.

Man, talk about tying all of your products together in one move.  Bam: synergy.
