Trump’s latest China threat could crush the $8 billion Amazon competitor Wish. Here’s its plan to fight back. - Recode
But this initiative also reduces the company’s dependence on the artificially low, cross-globe shipping rates that Wish relied on for its early success. In these instances, Wish uses freight-forwarding services to ship these items in bulk from Chinese merchants to Wish’s U.S. warehouses. When a customer places an order for one of these items, it is then shipped within the U.S. using U.S. carriers and normal rates // Wish getting out of the dropshipper biz, but might have to inject financing into the supplychain. all for those cat blindfolds!

Patch Lady on the C week @ AskWoody
Mary Jo today talks about a “Managed” desktop and it’s also blogged about on the Microsoft 365 blog whereby Microsoft will be deploying and managing business desktops. My response? Bring it on, because I think Microsoft themselves needs to understand better the state of patching today. Mary Jo’s post talks about that initially the devices supported will be Microsoft’s own Surface devices and I’ve tracked some nasty issues relating to firmware updates and patches on that platform. So much so that people have had to take units and receive replacement units in order to get a functioning system. This managed desktop won’t be offered to consumers, nor does it look like it’s economical to small businesses given that it has The Microsoft 365 Enterprise sku which is about a $50 a month software license for merely the software. let alone the cost of the hardware.

Bottom line, I think ultimately there are only good things that can come out of this.
