I don't get a phone for a personal assistant. Though if windows phone's interface didn't look the way it does I'd get one for the camera

Go Cortana! I wonder what the record is? But if Germany and Argentina make it to there finals ill do a back flip

I don't know what's more exciting - the games themselves or Cortana's streak! Machine learning at its best :)

I was rooting for Holland but now I want Argentina to win so I can see how far Cortana streak goes. lol

what Contrana can do is pretty much what gamblers can do. They got by numbers. It's pretty normal for gamblers with odds. Honestly I knew Germany was going to win. But this is how cansino and lottery gives odds when betting.

So don't be suprise, I can imagine how Google would be. Perfection? I wouldn't be suprise, with realtime injury on players and so on. But if anyone to be a king of sports prediciton, it's got to be Yahoo!

What are you talking about? What does Yahoo have to offer?

It's not just what gamblers do that Cortana does. Cortana looks at history stats, as well as current players stats, and weather which i'm sure most gamblers don't look into when thinking how the Germans or Holland can handle to climate differences from their countries. She is more accurate but anything goes anything can happen. We have see what Germany and Holland are capable of. We have yet to see what Argentina can do once they wake up. I think we will see that against Holland.

what the hell are you talking about. People live of gambling just like they do with stocks.
People buy & sell within seconds to minutes, by speculating from history to future, and same goes for all sports gambling. People bet. You don't believe me? Go to any gambling sites, you will see the odds from one side so expensive to bet on vs very low, and then when you hear some players got injury and what not, the odds changes so quickly and gamlbers react fast before it changes too!

This happens everywhere, and yes there are addiction to gamblers who are bad and good. Trust me, you have no idea how crazy gamblers are on sports and stocks. Watch the documentry, you'll be laughing your ass off after learning that this is pretty much similar to Cortana. Now as far as Yahoo goes, Yahoo has the most vast data of sports than Microsoft and Google put together. Just so you know I'm a Google user, very heavily on Google.
