Microsoft Should Call It’s Siri And Google Now Rival This…

This is my first post on The Verge. I usually just sit back and read the articles and the comments that follow. I only recently thought about joining the Tribe since I have so many ideas that I would like to share.

We all know that Microsoft is working on a Siri and Google Now rival. The question we keep asking ourselves. What will Microsoft call this new service? Many fans of Halo and speculators petitioned for Microsoft to keep the code name "Cortana" which is based on the AI character on the poplar Halo series. While I believe that Cortana isn’t a bad name for this upcoming service; I just think that there is an even better name that Microsoft should use and currently use… SATORI. Satori is a Japanese term meaning awakening; comprehension; understanding; enlightenment, and I think it would be the perfect name for a digital assistant. Siri has no meaning that relates to what the service provides. Google Now is dull and kind of a boring name to describe such functionality. Satori provides meaning, and describes a self-learning system of knowledge repository of data about the world around us that is collected by Bing. Bing uses Satori’s knowledge repository already in search results. Bing also provides web search results in Apple’s Siri. This is even more knowledge that Bing is collecting that millions of Apple users are searching for while using Siri. Search is changing before our eyes. We no longer depend on a list of blue links, but relevant answers to questions that we seek. If Microsoft use Bing to collect as much data as possible with partnerships with services provided by Apple’s Siri, Twitter, Yelp, TripAdvisor, etc. Siri and Google Now won’t stand a chance with the data that Satori would provide. This is why Satori would make the perfect name for a true digital assistant that could be integrated throughout all of Microsoft services. Let’s just hope it’s not launched before its ready.
