    Not really interesting but some are pretty funny.

    Ask her who her father is for instance. Ask her for other cruder favours and you get a short response

    If Cortana was a real person and not just a computer app she would kick some major booty.

    Yes I've only tried it on my Windows phone not my PC. I stay away from Cortana on that

    As long as you are the only person in the room.I tried her both on windows 10 and on windows phone and she is capable of basic stuff(such as opening a music player,reading SMS or that),but the issue is that she listens to pretty much everything in the room so if you have a loud tv or non-english speakers(that's me since I live in Romania but I speak english to her) she will not understand you.

    Maybe i need to try it one day instead of just reading about it, but i do not have a mic right now, heard it's best to have a good one.

    I use Cortana a little on my Nokia Windows phone 635 and in that context it is sometimes helpful.
    Don't really need it on my PC.

(Listen Up Microsoft heads.) I can't use Cortana. I cannot actually bring myself to open Cortana. It's sad really because I have been a PC Artificial Intelligence Freak since Virtual Personalities came out with Sylvie (Verbots) and Zabaware...
If like me, you prefer to use Google for searching (and if your default browser is Chrome), there are a couple of extensions that will redirect Cortana's Bing search to Google. Seems to work well so far. The one I've tried is called "Bing2Google."...
