Executives laid out some upcoming changes at the annual Microsoft Build conference. The company announced an update to Windows 8.1 as well as Windows Phone 8.1.
Windows Phone 8.1 has a new "Siri-like" assistant named Cortana, powered by Bing. Cortana gets to know you better over time by asking questions based on your behavior and checking in with you before she assumes you're interested in something.
"If that creeps you out, you can go into this little notebook that they have and you can decide what features and what information Cortana knows about you," said Mark Spoonauer, editor-in-chief at Laptop Mag.
