Microsoft Edge goes homomorphic: Nobody will see your credentials... but you'll need to sign in to use it

This may not be the right lace to ask this question, but I will. Does anyone know why Google stupidly sends ads of products I have just bought? I would have thought there would be some mechanism to register the buying process and act accordingly.

Better get Grandpa off Windows 7 because zero-day bug in Zoom allows remote code execution on vintage OS

Go easy on the Grandpa

Having started work on an IBM 360/30 in 1969, some of us have actually made Granpa status, still keeping up (to a degree!) on technology and supporting lots of our age group. Windows 10? No problem, fast and easy to use, and despite what's said above none of the people I support have had Edge change the default browser. Lots of folk have an inbuilt dislike about anything Microsoft. I understand the feeling, except with me its anything Apple.

Re: Microsoft Money

Have a similar amount of data on MS Money, the best program (we didn't call them Apps in those days) I've ever bought.
