Teams finally arrives in Apple CarPlay touting support for joining meeting and making calls. We road test this new feature to see whether it lives up to expectations.
Lots of excitement was generated when Guardicore revealed a purported vulnerability with the Exchange Autodiscover service.

Good as the SDK is, Microsoft has some big issues to solve to address some obvious security issues.
