Why is Delta offering free messaging on flights? Hoping to upsell inflight internet? Differentiate itself in the market? Some more nefarious reason?

If your firm uses Dell laptops and you are a Partner, please please please work to change this. Dells are unusable trash.... this laptop is hard enough without unusable PCs. If you insist on business issue laptops, Microsoft Laptop Studios or Surface Books. Ideally find a workable software solution and give people a choice of Razers or Macbooks. I'm seriously considering lateraling purely because I hate these laptops so much despite loving my firm otherwise.

Dating a guy who is great in a lot of ways- smart, funny, outgoing. But, in spite of myself, have been hung up on his height. He is about 5’8” and I’m slightly taller than this. I feel really uncomfortable wearing heels when we go out and generally find myself fantasizing about him being taller. I know this is goofy but having trouble convincing myself his good qualities outweigh this. Anyone had a similar experience? How did you get past it?

Hi! Can anyone provide insight into how I can increase my chances of getting a position at Microsoft? It's in the Financial Services Group and I think I'd be a good fit. Any help is appreciated!

How often do you talk to your staff and director? Started a new job in industry and we are still WFH. I’m still pretty new and would normally stop by to talk to people. We don’t have regular team meetings. So I guess Skype message is my only option, but check in once a week? This is outside of work emails, just to chat. I don’t want to be annoying and want to get to know my new coworkers. Any advice appreciated for this introvert.
