View Microsoft-Press related news.

Last night, passers-by on the banks of the Thames were treated to a spectacular stunt from world-renowned trials cyclist, Danny MacAskill, as he successfully completed one of the largest loop-the-loop challenges to ever be set on water.

With the help of Windows Phone’s truly personal digital assistant, Cortana, Danny rode around a monumental five-metre loop (taller than a double-decker bus!), illuminating the Cortana signature in front of one of London’s most iconic landmarks, the London Eye, in the process. Cortana acted as Danny’s personal assistant throughout his training for the activation, arranging his meetings, setting appointment reminders, playing his favourite music, warning for bad weather and finding maps.

Microsoft’s personal assistant Cortana is renowned for her instantaneous, intelligent and customised approach - she knows what you want and how to #makeithappen. With her proactive help, useful advice and instant solutions, Danny was able to fulfil a life-long aspiration seamlessly.
