While I doubt I'd install it as a third party app on a phone, I own a Windows Phone which it comes with and it actually works really, really well.

Siri and Google Now can take note.

Am I the only one who see's this gimmick as pointless..

I mean when I see the Adverts "Cortana, remind me when I'm near a florist", I almost want it to respond with "Sod off, if I have to remind you of everything you should seriously seek medical attention".

The date was August 29th, 2017.. when Cortana became self aware.. du du dum dum dum.

But being able to get walking/car directions to the nearest florist/supermarket/whatever when you're in a place where you don't know the way is pretty sweet

We never had that problem before... Just ask someone, I've found over the last few years mobiles and these gadgets have made us so anti social, also dangerous! I've lost count how many people I've nearly killed on the bike because they wander around even into the road because they are transfixed on their screens. (Mobile Zombies)

But Wrahaaaith, asking people things is scary
It's much less awkward to talk to your phone in public!
