Last August, Microsoft and Amazon made an interesting announcement. Those using Microsoft's Cortana virtual personal assistant will be able to access Amazon's Alexa assistant and vice versa. While the collaboration was expected to start late last year, apparently both firms needed more time to sync their assistants. Today, the sharing begins.
