Hey, welcome back to another Windows 10 Shots blog post.  I hope you read last week’s post, Windows 10 Shots – The Setup.

As I mentioned last time, with most shots after about a handful things will start to get a little hazy.  But, with Windows 10 Shots (this new series of posts), the hope would be that the opposite would happen.  That clarity and insight into the highly anticipated release would free your mind to great new features and power of Windows 10.

Today, let’s talk a little about the Microsoft’s new virtual digital assistant, Cortana.  You are probably familiar with Apple’s Siri, or even Google Now.  Well, Cortana is very similar but built right into Windows 10, both desktop (tablet, laptop) and windows phone (and soon, Xbox).  What?  Not a Windows fan?  Well, guess what?  It is even available on Android and coming to iOS.  Boom!

Windows ShotsYou might be thinking that this post is about a fancy new drinking game you haven’t heard of that involves drinking 10 shots of some crazy liquor while staring out a window.  Or maybe this is a post about taking shots and the all new Microsoft Windows 10 release.  Well, let me take a moment to clarify. You are close on both of those thoughts.  It is about the new Windows 10 release by Microsoft, and there will be shots (small posts) that discuss tips, tricks and features about the new operating system.

However, with most shots, after about a handful things will start to get a little hazy.  But, with Windows 10 Shots (this new series of posts) the hope would be that the opposite would happen.   That clarity and insight into the highly anticipated release would free your mind to great new features and power of Windows 10.

This series will continue on a weekly basis with tips, tricks and features, as well as other new and intriguing information to share with you about Windows 10.  I am assuming we won’t run out of topics anytime soon.
