Cortana vs. Siri: Battle of the Digital Assistants
Microsoft's Cortana is the next big digital assistant, borne out of the famous sci-fi universe of Halo. As a first generation technology, the engineering behind Cortana is rather impressive, and a great addition to the Windows Phone ecosystem. Better late than never, we always say. Of course, when you're the new girl to any party, you'll immediately be judged against your peers. So we did just that with Apple's Siri, seeing how the two stacked up in a head to head battle.
Aside from being pretty funny, Cortana definitely has some skills despite being a few years behind her closest competition. For the most part, Microsoft's technology is up to par against Siri, which is a famous and sometimes maligned part of Apple's software empire. With standard voice control questions, each one is capable of handling requests with relative ease. You know, even though Cortana is new, she seems to fit right in, offering up just enough personality and accuracy. Check it out and let us know what you think.
