Cortana updated to bring you stock prices and charts
With Microsoft's stock price at a 14 year high, what better time to update Windows Phone 8.1's personal assistant, to allow it to give users stock prices and other pertinent information. The gang in Redmond has promised to update Cortana twice a month, and has already added the predictive engine that used algorithms to correctly forecast the winning team in 93% of the Knockout round games for the World Cup.

Now, Cortana has been updated to bring you information about the stock market. No, don't expect the virtual personal assistant to give you winning stock picks. What you will receive are the latest prices for stocks you are tracking, along with a simple chart of each stock's price. The data comes from Morningstar.

Cortana's competitors also offer information from the world of high finance, with Google Now and Siri providing similar information and charts.

Update to Cortana allows personal assistant to display the 14 year high for Microsoft's shares

The phone that has put them on a market share map is the 520, no?

Shouldn't Cortana be finding them a Mcd's or lodging before sundown.

Popcorn anyone? 8)

Cortana is looking to be nothing short of amazingly cool.

It really comes down to using them all three side by side.

As well since Cortana is purely html5 based, and does not rely on the internet for phone functions, you can set alarms etc without the web since it is half/half.

As a result, Cortana can be updated on the fly or when needed, and much easier and faster than other methods.

I love it vs now and siri, i do like Siri's non use story time and talk balk on some non-use stuff though.

Even I can not deny that, she's a potent VA.
Enough to keep others scrambling.
