    In the Spirit of the Internet,



    Microsoft will now force you to use its favorite Windows 10 feature, whether you like it or not



    ... Not only does Cortana slot right into Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella's ambitions around artificial intelligenceand the future of technology, she's also driving lots of folks towards Bing, Microsoft's own search engine.

    So it's disappointing, but not surprising, that Microsoft is removing the ability to turn off Cortana once the Windows 10 Anniversary Update drops on August 2nd, as first reported by PC World's Ian Paul ...

    Cortana is on my smart phone! I didn't know this. Thank you.

    I didn't know about Bing until recently but I also didn't know it was owned by Microsoft. I've been using Google search

    Cortana is mandatory in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update

    Microsoft knows you'll love its digital assistant -- because now you have to.

    Cortana: The spy in Windows 10
    Cortana, Windows 10’s built-in virtual assistant, is both really cool and really creepy
