  1. Seems like Microsoft wants a portfolio to push their online store, plus bolster their xbox game library.

    I dunno. Anything that Microsoft touches they ruin. But I’m not into games any more, so I don’t really care. A part of me hopes this venture will fail and bite MS in the rear. Let them waste billions and be for naught! 😀

  2. Since this is Liliputing, seems appropriate to mention the M5Stack Cardputer released yesterday during the 2023 Tokyo Maker Faire

  3. I hated that Palma review.
    “X reader apps don’t work well”
    Why? Why do the Kindle and Kobo sis not work well? Are they slow? Glitchy? Freeze? Inefficient power use? What? That lack of specificity is a garbage move in a review.

But being vague doesn’t help.
