Need help finding a new computer?
Microsoft wants to help, https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/help-me-choose
Here's what they selected for me.(Not too bad a choice)
<snip image>
Not exactly what I asked for or what I purchased not long ago.

Surprised they didn't suggest Microsoft Surface ;)
I guess you didn't select that as a manufacturer option.

Also in the Priority section they only allow one choice.

Offered me the same system, I guess they have a deal with HP :)

Readying for the Future at Mozilla
https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2020/01/15/readying-for-the-future-at-mozilla/
https://techcrunch.com/2020/01/15/mozilla-lays-off-70-as-it-waits-for-subscription-products-to-generate-revenue

This definitely comes under the topic title very 'Interesting.'

The Mozilla blog item was a bit of a non-information story with very little detail.  The techcrunch article was more informative, especially the publication of the memo.

I guess it depends on whether you believe in the validity of the climate change theory. :)
