Can you imagine this:
You promised your girlfriend/boyfriend last week, in an email, that you’d accompany him/her to the gym (you put on a ton of weight over the holidays). You never made it to the appointment.
“I forgot,” you tell your loved one.
“Impossible,” is the reply you’re met with, “Cortana would have reminded you.”
This is a possible scenario if you decide to allow Microsoft’s digital assistant freedom to roam around your PC, letting you know what you’ve forgotten, promised and abandoned. Part of Microsoft’s update for Windows 10, first to members of the Insider Program and later to all Windows 10 users, is making Cortana a little bit more indispensable in that she will make sure you meet all your commitments. The voice assistant will do this by scanning your emails.
