I have been trying to decide if I want to get the Invoke on its Black Friday deal. It sounds like it's a pretty nice device and it even sounds pretty functional given the limited MS ecosystem.
I'm a realist when it comes to MS and their consumer products: I know that Mobile has been dead for a long while now, obviously Groove is the walking dead, the band/band2, while great was never given a chance. I don't really trust MS with consumer technology and yet I still am curious about the Invoke and considering getting one. Am I crazy?
Talk me into or out of it...
Anyone else using the 1709 version Edge on a regular basis? Took the dive last Friday and put my machine at work in the fast ring after having used a .vhdx image of 1709 (on the metal) for about a week.
After having used both a Hyper-V machine (running on the full hardware) and my actual OS, I can say that Edge may finally be there for me. I realized that yesterday when I launched Chrome and I hadn't even signed into my Google account on it since last Friday.
I did find that when I tried to use verticalresponse.com, there was some functionality that didn't work in Edge (on my laptop running 16299) and had to switch to Chrome to finish an email for my alumni group, but for the most part, it's pretty solid.
I know Paul likes to dog Edge because he can't make it fit to his workflow (pinning sites, running web apps borderless, etc.) and I've not used it because it didn't work correctly often enough that it was too frustrating. More usage and testing will tell for sure, but early returns are encouraging me that it might be where it needs to be for my daily browser. Heck, the extensions are getting better, too.
I finally dumped Groove music for Amazon music. I couldn't take the Android client anymore and the pace at which things got updated was glacial.
I tried using the "Stamp" app Paul mentioned a while ago, but it matched the right song on the wrong album. It probably doesn't matter much - the song is the song regardless of the album - but I didn't care for my music being "rearranged".
I had to buy the Amazon music storage because of their ridiculous 250 song limit to upload, but so far I'm happy with the Amazon Music client on Android and Windows.
