    yeah judging by how microsoft is going nowadays ,it's quite obvious ,most of or all their products will be turned into services.
    so we have to pay a monthly subscription payment. I hope cortana will be a separate product in oneday but not a service.
    Unless i find it useful for me, if i don't i will disable it if i have to pay, of course. For now need to explore my options.

    As I just walked in to my living room, I said "Cortana open up Edge" and she replied "Ok opening Edge browser" and opened it up to my homepage which is Ten Forums on Edge. Now that is useful. She also control Grove real well too.

    That with the beer would be good: "Cortana order me my favorite beer from the grocery store" and.... presto

    There are also Chrome extensions that will make Cortana use Google instead of Bing.
