Does Microsoft have a voice assist program like Siri? While funny, just seems they are picking on the features they do not have. In any case, will soon be forgotten like the Samsung commercials towards the iPhone

Yes and they have since Mango. With WP8, apps can tie into it, and with the apps I have installed it beats the crap out of Siri.

I liked when it panned back to the two guys NFC pairing "weee", teh funnies. :laugh:

Its not truly 'natural' language like Siri but it does the job, Bing clearly. Unlike Apple, MS has a search engine.

I'd say except Siri, WP has all other features in that ad. :/ but I think "features" was not the focus of the ad.

Siri is not truly natural language either :/ say anything outside of its set of commands and it spits out a search result.

So WP has bigger screens and the ability to NFC files/info by touching the phones together?

Bigger than the iPhone, and yes, it has NFC.

NFC: well this is from my own phone,

It wasn't funny when Apple made fun of their competition, and it's not funny when Microsoft do it, either.

What it IS, is juvenile.

Let each product compete on its merits alone, and leave the childish attacks on the competition to the idiot fans.

I think you need to lighten up a bit and look at this ad from a different angle. :laugh: They're making fun of the petty bickering between Apple and Samsung fans. In a way, they're showing how silly it is to pledge your loyalty to one specific company at the expense of ridiculing another. There's no need for the rivalry between Apple and Samsung but unfortunately, it exists.

As for Windows Phone, it's doing fairly well and it's getting better by the day. In most markets, it's already in the third spot after iOS and Android.

Yet again Microsoft attacks the competition rather than promoting Windows Phone on its merits. It's getting pretty tedious.
