    Better app than Gmail IMHO.

                Speaking of Mexico, was listening to a security expert on all things Mexico and he was saying is has gotten so bad with the cartels that he thinks they will see US boots on the ground in the next 3-4 years, flooding the US with drugs.
                This too shall pass.

                  We seem to be closing the vaccine gap on the US rather rapidly.

                  We're now at 35% of the adult population with at least one dose and they're at 46%.

                  Given that (I think based on very unscientific research) our vaccine hesitancy is a lot less than theirs, I suspect we'll surpass their % sometime in June.

                          Come to think of it,
                          we were freaking out about viruses back then too.

                          The millennium bug was going to freak out computers when the new century kicked in and planes would drop out of the sky etc.

                                        I don't think the violence has gotten any worse - it's been awful in the North for many years and there is no way Biden is going to send troops to fix what is essentially a Mexican problem.

                                                      It is gmail and I did have it setup that way for awhile but felt a dedicated app might be the better way to go as it would just be for that one account and no need to remember to switch over.

                                                        Ah this changes things for me. I binned the Outlook app over a year ago as I had various complaints from Android users at work around attachments, sync and some other general issues. I'll give it a test now and see if the latest version has improved.

Microsoft are battle with Google across multiple platforms, from Cloud Computing to Office Applications. Microsoft have made serious progress in UX in the last couple or years and are slaughtering Google IMHO. Can't comment on Apple because I wouldn't be caught dead using an Apple device or platform.

Integration with teams and calendar means it's now a useful tool.

They probably realised they don't exist. I think cohort 8 was people aged 16-59 in residential care homes and they probably just folded that into Cohort 7?

Just a real basic failing, that obv the one-to-one email is more likely to be the one you are searching for. Try it now and see - its pure shite.

                                                                                        You can easily filter so you find emails that come directly from a person rather than if they were simply a participant in thread. Also if the email contained attachments, if someone was cc'd, bcc'd etc etc.

                                                                                        I find it grand tbh but again you might be on about the mobile app purely which is not as good.

                                                                                            Hitch is right tho and outlook is a pretty rubbish - when the measure of quality after a huge overhaul it’s pretty much as good as gmail has been for the last 15 years it’s hardly a great recommendation.

                                                                                            obv the integration with other Microsoft products is a big plus, good security built in and the fact that everyone knows how to use it means that it’s prefect for pretty much any enterprise solution - again doesn’t make it a good standalone product.

                                                                                              https://www.coindesk.com/ruffer-turn...under-2-months

                                                                                              The Hotspur line about the mindset of folk who are very likely to have comfortable wealth versus those who are big underdogs is part of it too. If you know you can be comfortable with a 5-7% annualised return because you have a strong income ahead of you or inherited wealth behind you then you don't need to be going all in on high risk stuff.


                                                                                              The real challenge is for folk who are big dogs and do "get lucky" is will they be able to change gears....

                                                                                                      Hitch is right tho and outlook is a pretty rubbish - when the measure of quality after a huge overhaul it’s pretty much as good as gmail has been for the last 15 years it’s hardly a great recommendation.

                                                                                                      obv the integration with other Microsoft products is a big plus, good security built in and the fact that everyone knows how to use it means that it’s prefect for pretty much any enterprise solution - again doesn’t make it a good standalone product.

We know that, but I need future lawyers to know that also. But I've been following something silly for a week, that might be about to pop tomorrow. It's Memes Token. In the Telegram group they were saying there is a big article coming out tomorrow (in bsc.news, which is a widely read website for new listings) and they have just got permission to list on a decentish new exchange. The thing is worth nothing, obviously. But its also valued as something worth almost nothing, so maybe the minor good news tomorrow and the inherent humour of turning memes into an NFT trading network (the reason their launch is deemed newsworthy) will lead to a spike. I purely mention it as its maybe more useful to say these things before than after. I suspect this might be a new low for BBV.

                                                                                                                The Hotspur line about the mindset of folk who are very likely to have comfortable wealth versus those who are big underdogs is part of it too. If you know you can be comfortable with a 5-7% annualised return because you have a strong income ahead of you or inherited wealth behind you then you don't need to be going all in on high risk stuff.

                                                                                                                  Hmm, so two crypto real-life tales from today:
                                                                                                                  1. This guy (obviously already plenty of €€€) is a good friend of a friend, would have been out drinking with him a bit back in the day. Clearly hit the jackpot here!
                                                                                                                  2. Then I was talking to another guy in work, he's been offered a better role and was wondering whether to take it. Probably worth ~30k of an increase but he coming down against it on the grounds that 'I'm doing pretty well outside of work'. Eventually disclosing he had made 'a lot' punting crypto (clearly a multiple of 30k).
                                                                                                                  Gonna end badly imo but nice to see some winnahs.
                                                                                                                  "We are not Europeans. Those people on the continent are freaks."

                                                                                                                        well shortly after I realised that the funds sunk into Alien Worlds were a lost cause, so might take a moment to self-reflect on the idea of pumping money into things and only then working out what they are.

                                                                                                                        But I take the inherent gibe as well-positioned and well-aimed.

A veritable cornucopia of crazy ideas and revolutionary ideas and everything in between. I was talking to a ceo last week who contacted me after seeing something on linkedin. He presents an idea of which the essence is "we will run the entire world, but we will be benign dictators", and I'm there chatting away slightly fascinated, but not hugely paying attention, and then he starts eating through my attention fog when I hear something about €25 million. And I tune back into the conversation and he's talking about how he limited the fundraising to €25m as he didn't want state actors involved - all proper vc funding too, not coins. So that's the current market - propose an idea to take over the world and people will give you 25 million to get you started. What a brilliant time to be alive.
