Cortana puts in a full day in the U.K., starts giving out evening reminders

In the U.K., Cortana will now give you a road map of your upcoming evening. Do you have anything planned, like a dinner engagement? What will the weather be like once the sun goes down? How bad is the traffic for the commute home? Your personal assistant will answer those questions, and more. Most importantly, Cortana's evening reminders will tell you if you have a morning appointment that requires you to make it an early night.
Microsoft has done quite an admirable job getting Cortana up to speed. And with BlackBerry Assistant having launched on BlackBerry 10.3, Cortana is no longer the baby in the virtual personal assistant family.

It is not just Cortana that MS has done a great job on, the whole platform has improved out of sight as they quietly but surely make modest inroads into the market. No doubt causing the Android/ IOS legions to raise their rants about tiles and apps up a few more decibels, it's all they have left now. The screw turns...

Funny, considering things aren't looking good for the platform lol. WP is too late, 8.1 update made it considerable as an alternative, which should've happened in 2012 itself with WP8. Wp fans can deny everything, but they know the truth.

Why does in every Cortana thumbnail, she looks so sad?

It's because in the latest video game that was her most famous pose recently because of her 'death' and the link with the Master Chief. We could use the pic of her going split personality psycho....just how I like my women ;)

Does that blue lady look distress because WP sales are so bad?

WP sales are in line with some Android OEM's per quarter, matter of fact just this quarter MS sold over 9.3 million Lumias and that's without the other OEM's contribution. sure its not Android and iOS numbers but its growing over 80 Million WP users now. Cortana has more personality than Google now and Siri.
