I couldn't decide whether to put this in the android thread or here:

https://www.androidpolice.com/2019/10/0 ... o-screens/
Microsoft has announced a new phone at its 2019 Surface event, which just wrapped up. Not just any phone, either — an Android phone. The new Surface Duo is a dual-screen folding device running a heavily skinned version of Android, and it even has access to the Play Store. Or, at least, it will when it lands late next year.

I heard the rumors it was coming but who'd actually believe an AMD Surface would show up, heh.

I'm not planning on getting one, but if I do get a better job who knows.

It might be amazing hardware, as MS is very good at that and seems like they made AMD make something special. Too bad they probably won't make a version with a Brazilian Portuguese keyboard, that's what makes me buy laptops only in Brazil.

Along with the news that Bill Gates maintained a friendship with Jeffrey Epstein, this take on Microsoft's culture should be no surprise:

https://medium.com/@docjamesw/speaking- ... f80a449e36
Truth is, Gates and Ballmer are creatures of an era that few, most especially their successor, want to see return. Both were consummate know-it-alls, convinced that no subject, no matter how subtle, was a match for their intellect. No expert’s analysis was ever more prescient than their own. No competitor could possibly match the insights of their superior strategic minds. They specialized in snap decisions and dominating their subordinates. But chalking up the shouting, on-the-spot firings and alleged chair-throwing as simply “leader’s passion” misses a greater point: they perpetuated their toxic behavior by surrounding themselves almost exclusively with leaders who emulated that behavior.
