WW 755: Chris Caps the Year

Beep boop - this is a robot. A new show has been posted to TWiT…

What are your thoughts about today’s show? We’d love to hear from you!

Always enjoy Chris Capossela’s appearance on the show. The fact that we get someone of that level continually impresses me and is one of the things I look forward to each year with this show. As always - well done!

Yeah maybe I’m projecting but I feel like Chris might have been a little worried about this year’s questions. He handled them well, though. Frankly getting a half hour from a C-level exec is pretty generous.


Yes, it was a great segment and Chris did well, even if he avoided some questions, deflecting them a little, but still fairly straight talking, compared to most marketing people.

I don’t agree with him regarding the shopping stuff etc. in Edge. That should be an add-in, not a core part of the browser. They are enough of a security nightmare, without building in extra, unnecessary, security weaknesses into it.

Just finished the episode and have a question for @MaryJo . Why would you log out of Teams?

I logged in when I set up the phone and just set my status to “offline” when I’m not at work. What advantage does logging off bring?

Hi. When I want to be unreachable, I want to truly be unreachable :slight_smile: And I think every app should allow people to log out. On the desktop, when I log out of Teams, it doesn’t want to let me go, but it eventually does. Why is Teams so thirsty?? :joy_cat::joy_cat::joy_cat:


On the desktop, when I don’t want to be reachable, I quit Teams, which means it is still logged on next time I start it.

I can understand not wanting to be contactable. I have the benefit of it being a company phone, so I just turn it off, when I really want to be uncontactable.

I tried to give it a bit of time before commenting. It’s been a great year of WW episodes, guys - thank you so much! Always a great to hear you share your critical take on the matter. This has turned to be my favourite podcast, changing from TWiG.

At least in my book - and I acknowledge to seemingly be alone in this opinion - the annual Chris Cap show does not add much each year. Maybe even to the contrary. I can understand it to be strategically useful to maintain a good connection, but it does not really add much more than a spoken, glossy advertising pamphlet to the show. Here, even the biggest problems come with a silver lining that outshine any issue - so consequently, none really get addressed.

That said: let my voice be your pinch of salt in an otherwise lovely podcast apple crumble - otherwise it’s too sweet. :wink: Enjoy the days off and looking forward to many many more of your episodes! :slight_smile:

I think Paul and Mary Jo always want to give Microsoft a chance to respond to their comments. It’s just good journalism. So once a year we get their take.
