Why Microsoft is essentially creating “Jarvis” from Iron Man
While the execution of Windows 8 itself was less than successful and not well received, Microsoft is back to the drawing board with Windows 9 - more a refinement and maturity of the windows 8 principle of touch the universal OS. this hints more at the direction Microsoft sees the market heading.
Slate tablets have been coming out recently aiming at professionals. They support powerful Intel core microarchitecture CPUs, dedicated graphics, and large UHD displays. The TBA release of “Cortana”, the personal AI assistant designed to rival Siri. Cortana should find it’s way to the Xbox One, Microsoft mobile phones, and Windows 8/9. Cortana has a “notebook” like system that may support a virtual “memory” system that will be unified across all devices, from the TV, to PC, to tablet, to phone. This personal assistant paired up with the idea of giant touch screen computers to adorn walls and table, will essentially create your own “personal assistant” that follows you around, transferring from device to device. The Xbox one also points towards Microsoft’s plan, to have a full, unified ecosystem across all devices that not only unifies all media consumption and work, but also creates an artificial “friend” in a way. Truley the “home of tomorrow”.
