It's been two months since Satya Nadella took over as CEO of Microsoft and it looks like he's done everything that Ballmer was afraid to.
Cutting the licensing fees for Windows and Windows Phone, releasing a mobile version of Office, and finally getting Cortana, the Google Now/Siri competitor out into the wild.
Speaking of Cortana, Microsoft's Siri/Google Now competitor is insane. It completely blows the latter two out of the water.
One thing that will be great for the Redmond giant is their propensity for really excellent cross-platform sync. Having Cortana everywhere is going to be HUGE for Microsoft, allowing them to become truly competitive once again. After all, competition spurs innovation.
This just might be the only Windows Phone feature I'm pretty jealous about. They certainly tool their time, but it looks like it's paid off.
Cortana; so simple, yet so intuitive.
