    When windows 10 came out we had to set things to US to get her to work but these days there is wider support.

    Us people up in the great white north can now set things to the correct country but she seems to lag and take longer to realize what you said and often just closes rather then do as you asked.

    Is this a bug..just me or is she low on her tim's coffee and just being a $#%^^%*.

    Anyone else see this?

    Hopefully she is overly polite about it.

    Cortana is cr4p in any region other than the U.S

    Failed product

    Who has Google set to their homepage?

    OK, now, who has Bing set to their homepage?

    Yep

    I did wonder why she kept saying she was sorry ;)

    Cortana not bad needs to be broadened in scope of what she does.

    People actually use bing !!

    Why would you use Bing when Google exists? Bing is a poor copy of Google, with a pretty picture to entice people to use them

    Having alternatives is always good.

    Bing has a lot to do in order to be a strong competitor of Google.

    You can set Cortana to use Google in Chrome with Chrometana, and you can set it somehow in FF, but I don't use FF, so you'll have to look it up.
