    Cortana related files have already been spotted in the Windows 10 Technical Preview build. It even includes something called Cortana Notebook which allows you to personalize your experience. Here's a quote with some of the details of this feature,

    We aren't surprised by this news, but we are still pleased to see it. Microsoft has made it obvious they want Cortana functionality throughout their Windows line.

    Interesting. I could imagine Cortana taking the Bing Smart search to a whole new level with voice activation and voice feedback. Unfortunately though, I'd imagine it would also require a Microsoft Account, which I don't want...will have to pass on it if that's the case.

    Bypassing all the services will render you a low power user. Hop on over to Google... Doh, account required... Apple... Doh, account required. Good luck with the I am an Island approach.

    Blindly using all the services will render you an ignoramus power user...I use an iPhone and my account is used for making app purchases, just like my Microsoft account, and syncing contacts with Outlook my Surface Pro. The rest, I can live without.

    I've already integrated Cortana into my daily routine with Windows Phone, she already picks up my preferences for the MSN Content Apps (Stocks, Sports Teams, Commute, Interests, etc.) She tracks my flights and appointments, telling me proactively when I should and the best route to get there (which I would normally search for just prior to leaving). And most importantly she found a Kick-@$$ Mexican Restaurant that has very authentic food a couple of blocks from my new office and I'm the only Gringo in the place, this is something I thought I had lost when I left California :) They have Tortas.....YUM
