This is not just cruel, but stupid in the extreme. A pointless show of power that will do enormous damage to the lives of students and the well-being of institutions.

I have found myself back in the mode of buying books 5-10 times faster than I can read them. I want to read everything, but so much else claims time and attention. I need a sabbatical dedicated to pouring words into my head rather than wrenching them out through my fingers.

So iOS 14 and macOS 11 look interesting, sure, whatever. But I’d pay cash dollars for a real refresh of Mail. Not more fonts or signatures or stationery type foofaraw. But snooze. Delayed send. IMPROVED SEARCH.

Replying to @kfitz

Take it apart and rebuild it as if you were inventing the desktop email client today. And then integrate it with the rest of the system in ways that actually work. That, I would pay for.

Replying to @cplong

Wow, that’s serious. I tried to get myself to use the desktop Outlook client but search was so completely broken it was unusable. And I really want one client that I can pick up all my accounts in. It doesn’t seem too much to ask!
