  • Sorry (but not sorry): We need to discuss Apple. Ladies and gentlemen, start your gongs!
  •  The Mac transition to ARM and how this is better than Windows 10 on ARM
  •  The new macOS UX and how this is better/more consistent than Fluent in Windows 10
  • The new iOS 14 UX and how it's the same thing as live tiles, just 10 years later
  • Related: Microsoft complained about Apple's business practices; Apple subtly announced small changes to address the concerns.
  •  Edge memory improvements are coming to Chrome too
  •  Consumer features start appearing in Teams on mobile in preview
  •  Skype for Windows 10 and Skype desktop are consolidated. Confused yet?
  •  From the "oh, you'll pay" department: Edge enterprise sync comes to Microsoft 365 Business Premium; Windows Defender ATP comes to Android in preview
  • Send Later feature coming to Outlook on the web. Some of it, anyway.
  • Microsoft shuts down Mixer

  •  Tip of the week: Paul embraces Linux, and you should too. How to correctly install and configure WSL 2. What's the future of WSL?
  • App pick of the week: Opera. Opera 69 for desktop picks up Twitter integration.
  •  Enterprise pick of the week: Microsoft's latest acquisitions in data modeling and IoT. It's always interesting to see where Microsoft is putting its acquisition dollars. In the past two weeks, the company bought a data-modeling company, ADRM Software, and an IoT security company, CyberX.
  •  Developer pick of the week: Microsoft releases phase one of OpenJDK for Windows 10 on ARM. Microsoft loves Java!
  •  Cocktail pick of the week: Grand Cosmo: A tribute to CosmoDB (COME ON)... Paul's wife's unique take on a Cosmopolitan:

- 6 parts pear vodka
- 2 parts Grand Marnier (or triple sec or Cointreau)
- 2 parts lime juice
- 4 parts cranberry juice
- Shake with ice and serve over ice. Garnish with a lime wedge or slice.
