Microsoft: Story of idiots
  • Start from Outlook, this guys plan to destroy it.

    Outlook interface is loaded with buttons you probably aren't using, and it generally isn't as intuitive or fluid as the mobile and web versions. Thankfully, Microsoft knows this -- and it's planning a revamp that could give the email and calendar app a breath of fresh air. Microsoft recently previewed Outlook redesigns for Mac and Windows that are nearly as clean and intuitive as their mobile counterparts. You can still have a customizable "ribbon" at the top, but it's stripped down and less intimidating to newcomers. The navigation panel (on the left) also takes its cues from Outlook's mobile apps, making it much easier to switch folders or entire accounts.

    I really think we need to do something to journalists who write all this, as well as ban any design and development rights for people who made it.

  • New Office UI

  • Microsoft will fully pull Cortana from iOS and Android devices. And in September it'll fully switch off any third party skills. Total Cortana elimination even from Windows 10 is expected to happen in early 2021.

    New industry rumors are that Apple had multiple secret agreements and Microsoft one had obligation to kill their Windows Phone OS and smartphones, as well as not compete in many other areas. May be Cortana is direct part of agreement and company just needed to spread in time their actions to make them not so obvious.
