    <p>In your opinion is Microsoft spread too thin? They have so many products in so many different directions which don't work together. Is this a problem or just how big companies are?</p>

    <p>With the planned obsolescence of Windows 10 Mobile gaining traction recently, this has me considering alternative devices. </p><p><br></p><p>For a non-heavy mobile app user, do you believe a combination of the Surface Go (LTE) and a feature phone (ala The Light Phone) could address mobile computing requirements?</p>

    <p>Brad, how has Microsoft or Google not bought Grammarly yet? Not just for their tech but also their talent. Microsoft could integrate it into Office as well as SwiftKey (there's a Grammarly keyboard)</p>

    <p>1: The Windows 10 Mail app has seen very few updates in recent times, and arguably lacks a lot of very basic functionality (text resizing, UI Layouts, html rendering etc), Do you have any thoughts on whether Microsoft continue to develop this app out with more of the basics in the near future? Or do you personally see them replacing it with say a PWA version of</p><p><br></p><p><br></p><p>2: It's being reported that Microsoft might be sunsetting Live Tiles, which is understandable. What are your thoughts on if Microsoft had made them available to pin to the Desktop, acting like widgets, alongside Application Shortcuts? Do you think this would have been a better approach?</p>

    <p>Just watched a Google add for Chromebook, and it is sort of compelling in a way. On the other hand, I have been working with an Office 365 Developer account, and the functionality it provides through the web interface is also fairly compelling and does not really need a Windows machine to work.</p><p>Do you think that Microsoft might offer consumers a package that would combine something like a version of Teams for family, extended OneDrive storage and Office online, with a lightweight piece of hardware that could handle local storage and perhaps the mobile apps for Office. It would need to be significantly simpler than Windows 10 in S Mode, to compete with Chromebooks, since S Mode still requires more care and attention to the OS than Chrome OS.</p><p><br></p>

    <p>Why pre-judge coming foldable devices solely on their ability to carry significantly higher price tag? There is a current and lengthy trend toward larger screens (phones, laptops, TVs, tablets) and a trend where costs and prices fall after a new class of device is launched? Why not judge instead by interest and demand and by use cases? When the Samsung Note launched people chortled because "nobody" needed or would want a phone that large.</p>
