    <p>Question regarding the book. Was writing a book something that you wanted to do? Or did it just morph organically into it. </p>

    <p>What would a potential Microsoft Core OS rollout (aka "no more Windows") mean for Xbox? Do you think there would be a separate fork if Windows would take a smaller role within the consumer branch?</p>

    <p>Do you have any info on what MSFT may have done to have Surface Gos become the tablet used for the LSAT? (<a href="https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2018/12/10/18131073/microsoft-surface-go-tablets-lsat-law-school-exams-digital&quot; target="_blank">https://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2018/12/10/18131073/microsoft-surface-go-tablets-lsat-law-school-exams-digital</a&gt😉 Anything else like this in the wind?</p><p><br></p><p>OTOH, what'd it do to MSFT if this doesn't work?</p>

    <p>You wrote that Teams is the new Excel for Microsoft, yet both you and Paul seem to find it wanting, to put it charitably. You also mentioned that your wife's work moved to Teams from Skype for Business, and that it was "soul crushing".</p><p>So, which is it? I understand that its usage is growing, but if it is so awful how can the growth continue?</p>

    <p>You mentioned that your Garage door automatically close at 21:00 each evening. Does the door have a sensor to detect that there is nothing in the way before it closes? </p>

    <p>Whatever happened to Andromeda ? </p><p>Was it a mobile device, and would it still have any relevance now that Samsung have released their folding phone/ note taking device. </p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#381834">In reply to Jules_Wombat:</a></em></blockquote><p>According to Brad Sams, Andromeda, AKA Surface Foldable™, expected Q4 2019. But a bit bigger than we've seen from the slew of patents, i.e., probably not pocketable, but I jolly hope it is.</p><p><br></p><p>No Blandroid device has ever been relevant, folding, foldable, notched, or otherwise.</p>

    <p>Have you messed around with Microsoft's new AI powered news app – Hummingbird? It seems basic but nice. I'm just confused why they didn't put the AI into the Microsoft News app. </p>
