In another instance of "you get what you pay for" (but sometimes not even that)
The free version of Outlook web mail now has more ads -- and Microsoft is making them look like emails.
Really, the only difference between these ads and outright spam is that the ad is randomly inserted into your inbox at runtime instead of being stored in your inbox as an actual message. Aside from that, it looks, acts, and reads exactly like spam.
The message from Microsoft is clear: spam is ok as long as THEY are the ones doing it.
Spam you cant stop.. Neat.
I'm still glad my professional days are nearing the end, and i wont ever have to see another windows machine ever again and to be honest, i hate what the 'it field' has become. ( even if i were to strike back out on my own in retirement, i would get to choose.. )
Ya ill still be around. i wont drop out totally. But i can finally give things the bird i dont like..

Just announced today that MS is now our phone provider. Via teams crap. Was using VoIP via an actual telecom company.
