RIP Internet Explorer, Oracle wants to Buy TikTok, Flight Simulator 2020 A moment of silence, please... Microsoft outlines the plan to kill off Internet Explorer and Legacy Edge, at least from Microsoft 365. But there's still no actual end of life date for IE11... just lots of lead-ups to it SurfaceMary Jo finally got 2004 on her Surface Laptop 3!Panos Panay joins the Sonos board of directorsThe press/blogger briefing for Surface Duo is now public Surface Duo after the dust settles: Has anyone come up with a good use case? This week in TikTok Now Oracle's joined the bidding Is Oracle in it to win it? Could they actually manage to host TikTok in their cloud? (Maybe. See Zoom.) Or are they in it to pressure Microsoft boost their offer? Microsoft 365 The first Microsoft Teams Display is quite limited for nowNo new Dev Channel build of Windows 10 today (or likely this week) due to an unspecified bug Xbox Xbox is getting a new Dashboard ... everywhereThere are some great games coming to Xbox Game Pass in the next two weeksThere are now over 2000 indie games on XboxMicrosoft Flight Simulator is now available on PC Tip of the week: Can't get enough of MJF and Paul? (and who can't??) We recorded an episode of MJFChat that focuses on learningEnterprise pick of the week: Making Azure outage communications less terrible. Microsoft is trying.Codename pick of the week: Project Osaka. A blast from the MS codename past. Project Osaka, aka CollabDB, was supposed to be a list-sharing app for O365. MS killed it several years ago, but elements of it remain in the new M365 Lists app. Beer pick of the week: Westbrook Lemon Meringue Pie. In my ongoing series of beers made to taste like desserts, I offer you Lemon Meringue Pie. Lemon Meringue Pie is a sour from the excellent Westbrook Brewing. It does include vanilla, lemon, milk sugar, graham crackers and cinnamon and clocks in at a modest 4 percent. You can have your pie and drink it, too!
