Microsoft Search became generally available last year. Whereas Microsoft’s Bing focuses on providing an internet search engine for the consumer, Microsoft Search is aimed at the Enterprise. It uses Machine Learning (ML) from Bing and adds the power of the Microsoft Graph. For those of you not familiar with Microsoft Graph I would suggest you read the link mentioned above; however, in brief, it allows access to data within Microsoft 365 services including most Office 365 services.
If you don’t know what Planner is then think of it as Microsoft’s version of Trello (https://trello.com/). If you don’t know what Trello is then think of it as a virtual Kanban board.
Microsoft Teams is a fantastic tool; this can be seen by the success that Microsoft have had with it. They claim it is used daily by 13 million users and 19 million weekly active users.

Broken arms and RSI are common problems and although solutions to help with them existed at the time I suffered, the technology available now is even more useful.
Do you know anyone who has been phished? Hopefully not, but if you have, let’s hope they don’t get phished again.
