Cortana arrives... in Bing personalization settings
If you go to the Bing personalization settings in your desktop browser, you'll notice that Cortana has been added to the list of services like Bing Apps and Bing Services that can personalize your experience (aka services that will track your data and learn from your usage, in case you're anxious about privacy.) Cortana even gets its own setting under the heading "Other Cortana data", which reads:
There is also an option to clear this data. As we already know from various breakdowns of Windows Phone 8.1, there will be much more granular control over this data on your smartphone. WP8.1 will offer a feature called your Notebook, where you will be able to control what data Cortana tracks, what information is added, and you can remove specific data whenever you want.
The livestream is starting in just under an hour, so we'll be getting the full story soon enough. Anyone out there excited for Cortana?
