Re: neat
There's some (unconfirmed) buzz that Cortana is present in internal builds of Windows "Threshold," so if you're a Windows fan, some of the benefits described in this article might be headed your way. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if Cortana comes to Windows before Siri comes to OS X, since it doesn't seem like Siri is destined for OS X Yosemite. Unless Tim Cook has some kind of "one more thing" moment planned during this fall's expected iPhone/iPad/iWatch press conferences, that makes me think Siri is a late 2015 Mac addition.

Re: "Her"
Siri on a Mac could be helpful, especially as it learns the owner. Today, though, I'm glad my Mac can't hear or understand me. Given the tech problems it's giving me, Siri would be blushing from some of the names I've called the machine this morning!
