Cortana gets stage fright
Stage fright – it happens to the best of us at all the incredibly wrong moments.
This is what happened when Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s CEO tried to get his new best bud Cortana – Microsoft’s virtual assistant and answer to Apple’s Siri – to perform at a recent Dreamforce conference in America.
Instead of showing Satya his ‘most at-risk opportunities’ Cortana insisted he buy milk instead,
translating his request to ‘Show me to buy milk and his opportunity’.
Hey, we all get thirsty sometimes – especially when we’ve got stage fright!
Lucky for him, Satya and Cortana were saved by someone backstage and his presentation went on without a hitch. She’s shy okay! And it was her first time’s being up on stage in front of all those Dreamforce people!
Don’t worry Cortana, you’ll get used to it – Siri, had teething problems too when she started out and now she can make jokes! The sarcastic little so and so!
