a $10 giftcard for amazon, uber eats, grubhub or doordash is less than that i think. they're not all the same amount of points but i definitely have less than that

they also have $20+ but idk how many points they go for offhand

a pretty cool edge feature is where you switch to another microsoft account profile in the browser, then go to like outlook.com, and it pops up a modal dialog that asks if maybe you want to switch back to your initial profile to log in. very mindful of my needs.

I like the Onedrive integration on my work machine. it seems that the documents folder is mapped to the OneDrive folder, even though the actual Documents folder still exists. And I can't attach a powerpoint file from that folder to an email, it won't let me drag and drop it from that folder, and attaching it from the menu also doesn't work because it complains that the file is open. Just next level genius poo poo.

Some Teams features are going to be locked behind a new Premium tier:
https://www.theregister.com/2023/01/11/teams_premium_more_expensive/

quote:

As Microsoft's licensing guide clarifies: "some Teams features will move from Teams licenses to Teams Premium licenses." Those features are:
Live translated captions;
Timeline markers in Teams meeting recordings for when a user left or joined meetings;
Custom organization Together mode scenes;
Virtual Appointments - SMS notifications;
Virtual Appointments - Organizational analytics in the Teams admin center;
Virtual Appointments - Scheduled queue view.
Oh no.

For a second I thought that was saying all captions/transcripts would be a premium feature but if not I don't care
