microsoft is going to start charging $8/month for Windows Blue and the only feature on release is a "snap to side/corner" that doesn't look like it's being done by a chippy being paid per job.

like what is this?

ooh interesting, my switch panel opens discord in the context of my personal windows profile, even if I'm logged into my work profile.

So last week there was a 20 km open ocean swim event held in Perth. To help track the swim, they built an app, where swimmers could set their phone to transmit their location, and spectators could see the progress of all the swimmers.

They didn't turn this system off after the event, so the app continued sharing the location of all the swimmers all week...
