re: Microsoft's Answer To Siri: Cortana
That's a great question, Lorna. To some extent, I think so, but it will probably get tricky. It's one thing for Cortana to scan my personal email; it's my email, after all. But if it's a corporate account, I, as the user, wouldn't have the authority to authorize that kind of scan-- at least not without oversight of some kind. How granularly could Microsoft allow IT to restrict content without detracting from Cortana's strengths? If there's a work-personal separation, is it elegant and simple, or is it as clunky and annoying to the end user? Microsoft has all the money and security expertise in the world to throw at this problem. But this is a different sort of puzzle, I think.
