Ask The en: Steep, Xbox One Price Cuts & Leaving Groove Music Pass 

By  • 

I have to admit that I had a very hard time resisting the urge to start this month’s Ask The en with a quote from Albus Dumbledore’s end of term speech in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

Honestly, I use Cortana multiple times a day now that she’s on virtually everything with a display attached
