Update: Oh, I forgot one! It’s really interesting that both Siri and Alexa fall back on using Bing (which of course, Cortana does as well). Except for Google’s own products, all the next-generation voice-activated search devices rely on Microsoft’s platform, which could be a meaningful advantage for them in the future.
Really interesting to consider the bull case for Microsoft, because they have the right pieces in the right position — and it’s hard to look at any of the tech majors and say the same thing here today.
I really hadn’t considered Bing’s proliferation in 2MA’s tech ecosystem, but that’s an important bonus.
It’s now down to execution for Nadella & Microsoft…
