With the NFL getting ready to officially start their season soon, I thought I’d let you know of a nifty little perk of owning a Windows Phone. With all the talk in the air of iPhones and Androids, the Windows Phone can sometimes get left in the dust. That’s not to say it’s a bad phone, it’s just not quite as popular as those other two mentioned. More popular or not, it does have a feature I think is pretty awesome. Cortana (Windows Phone’s virtual assistant and partner of Master Chief) is now able to predict the winners of any NFL game. And if her stats during the World Cup have anything to say about it, she’s right a whole lot more than she’s wrong.

While Cortana won’t tell you her reasoning for picking a certain team over another, there is certainly an algorithm somewhere she bases her choice upon.


Do you have a Windows Phone and look forward to trying this out this NFL season? Who knows – maybe she can even help you in your office football league.
