    Nope, nada, nyet, no can do. Your battery will not die quicker if you have location services enabled.

    Laptop and tablet batteries die from using the device more.

    The batteries only last so long.

    Do you find Cortana super glitchy at all? I'm having big issues with it.

    It has been glitchy since the start. That is why it is not getting the use that it should be getting.

    Don't confuse a battery becoming discharged by use with a battery's useful life. Most batteries are not warranted for more than a year and their charge capability decreases as it gets older. Batteries do not have an infinite life span.

    Hi would be interested if you could quote some examples..
    (I just find the different categories of search for which it's a front end far too rich a mix for me).

    Then there are the oddities
    'Where am I?' - at a house 10 numbers away, apparently!
    'How old are you?' ......
