I hate you.

I blame solar flames.

Maybe a nanosecond nap would help. Ok, much better now.


Most of the time when I ask a question it takes me to a bing search. Does anyone has this issue?

Are you in the US?


This topic is kind of worthless because it turns out she has multiple answers, :laugh:

 

for example,

Are you dead? "You might be mistaking the future for the past"

Well we're trying to find the questions she responds to with a few examples to the questions, just like they did with Siri.

I was just commenting on how Cortana responds differently for the same question (which is cool), not saying this thread shouldn't exist. :)

I tried 5 or 6 of those and each time she did a bing search rather than doing anything. And half the time if it isnt a search she will try to start a text message with someone whenever i ask her something. Already rebooted the phone a few times as well with no luck. i suppose i dont need her at all just thought i would try it out.

I got that problem today too. It's usually when the internet is bad, or when you're using too much data.

Are you male or female?

I'm female. But I'm not a woman.

I contain multitudes. ---> Legion?

Female? Yes. Woman? No.

Is there a third option?

It depends on what you're asking for but yeah it does route to Bing quite a bit.  It's a beta application though so I'm sure as more and more people use it and the database gets larger and more sophisticated we'll get a more varied response.

You may have a certain accent that is probably not transverse well enough.  Either that or Cortana is not ready for the mass.

Tell me a joke.

Those are warwagon/10s :p. There's tons too, try it yourself.

 

 

 

is that one real?

it'd be impressive considering warwagon may not be that well known outside of forums

(and by that I mean the alter ego, not the person)

I like to think so, but beauty is in the photoreceptors of the beholder.

Guess the question:
I've heard from a reliable source that the Answer is 42.
But still no word on what the question is.
Next time I asked I got "we all shine one, my friend" not sure what the reference for that is.
