  • So Edge? One step forward but…

    Just a reminder, this week’s newsletter is a special edition and the full contents can be viewed by both Plus and Free subscribers as well as anyone who merely clicks on the links in the post. As a special holiday gift to our readership everyone gets the full newsletter contents this week.

    While Brian was researching Brave browser in this week’s Holiday newsletter, I was looking at Edge. And while I’m very happy with their Super Duper mode, I’m NOT so happy with their planned Buy now Pay later offering that is in beta. There had better be a way to block this on ALL platforms and not just Enterprises. (116 responses so far and hardly anyone is a fan).  Not to mention most financial folks indicate that the Buy now Pay later isn’t the greatest thing for you to do.  “But generally speaking, if you don’t have the cash now, you probably shouldn’t be doing this.”

    What do you think?  I think Microsoft really needs to rethink this.
