    I've already entered Cortana, so you will want to do the same.
    You can find it in the app menu or on your home screen.

    On this screen, it reads "Cortana is a personal assistant, ready to help you out.
    She is always ready and willing. She works best when Microsoft collects and uses your location, contacts, voice input, info from email and texts, browser and search history, calendar and other info. You can turn her off at any time", that is, if she becomes too irritating. "By tapping yes, you agree to the Windows Phone Terms of Use". So, we tap "yes". We cannot avoid it.

    She's now absorbing the entire internet.
    It sounds dangerous. It probably is. It says it won't take long. I have no idea how long it takes to absorb the entire internet.

    For her, it's taking longer than expected to calibrate things to her satisfaction.
    So you can see she is very personalized. She is trying to express identity and very human characteristics. This is really the beginning of the robotic and Artificial Intelligence revolution.
