I asked Cortana to create a reminder to empty my kitchen compost container every morning. 

 

So, now, EVERY morning at 7:00

Microsoft To-Do (Because that's where I have Cortana put my shopping list items):

On my PC: "Empty the compost"

On my Phone: "Empty the compost"

On my Tablet: "Empty the compost"

 

THEN the Cortana App:

On my PC: "Empty the compost"

On my Phone: "Empty the compost"

On my Tablet: "Empty the compost"

 

THEN my Invoke: 

"You have a reminder. Should I read it?"

 

And, if any of those devices are turned off, I get the reminder as soon as I boot them up. 

 

With all that, up to seven reminders to empty the compost, you want to know how many times I actually forget to empty the damned container?

 

I would imagine that you all can get Cortana developed far enough that my marking a reminder as complete via To-Do or Cortana on my phone, PC, Invoke tablet will IMMEDIATELY cancel reminders through the other channels. 

 

I hope you get her there quickly!

That's really funny (sorry) and annoying at the same time! hope they fix it in the new upcoming Cortana 2 :)

@HotCakeX yeah. You have to laugh at it. It is nuts. That's the current state of home automation, I guess...
