    <p>Regarding Continuum on the Surface Duo…perhaps no coincidence that Microsoft has worked hard with Samsung on their Dex functionality.</p><p><br></p><p>Indeed, a lot of Microsoft's work on the Android side over the past few years, including Launcher, Your Phone, Dex, apps, etc. seems to have been leading up to this very point: launching a uniquely Microsoft mobile device with extremely tight integration with Windows.</p>

    <p>Regarding the discussion of Dashboard on macOS. I find it highly amusing that you were discussing this today, the day that 10.15 came out that removes Dashboard from macOS :D</p>

    <p>Surely one can go into Visual Studio today and write a Xamarin app that runs on Android, and (for release May '20) Blazor client side which would also run on Android's browser? So why if MS 'release this' would that be the dumbest thing MS ever did?</p><p><br></p><p>On the hardware front, I don't think dual screen is too exciting. Much better would be something like LG's transparent screen (currently limited to signage).</p>
