Cortana's so happy, her inner halo is a bit narrower at the top, maybe kind of like a balloon.
YESSSSsssss good job, Cortana! Her Satisfaction halo looks just like Title flip halo and the Sensitive V2 halo and the Optimistic halo, but she's still pretty darned proud of herself.
May Cortana help you? Please, it'd be no trouble at all. If you see this halo, she's dying to be of service to you. Unless she's just Satisfied or Sensitive.
13. Music reco
We're guessing "Music reco" means Cortana's ready to get down. That's certainly what this big-talkin' halo says to us, anyway. Or it says Iggy Pop. Same difference?
This icon reminds us of Iggy Pop, too. In any case, we don't know why Cortana has two haloes that mean Optimistic. Maybe she's a glass-half-full kind of personal digital assistant.
Say whatever you want to Cortana. She's all ears. Or, she's Optimistic or Considerate.
16. Sensitive V1
We're all sensitive in different ways, and so is Cortana, apparently. Sure, Sensitive V1's halo looks just like the one in Sensitive V2, but the underlying message is totally different.
Now you listen up, Cortana has something to say! And we've noticed that the three icons for Speaking, Reminder, and Music reco all have a light inner halo and a dark outer halo, and all the rest are the opposite, so that must mean something.
Hmmmmm......now why does Cortana's Thinking icon look the same as Satisfied, Considerate, Optimistic, and Sensitive V1 and Sensitive V2? Just like with people, sometimes it's hard to tell.
