The government has announced that from 23:59 on Tuesday that the rest of New Zealand will move to level 2 and Auckland will remain at level 4 (link). There have been some changes with level 2 so there was a meeting by management at work and they decided that we’re continuing to work from home until the end of the week. There has been changes to the level 2 protocols regarding spacing and limits which is why internally we’re referring to it as level 2.5. I think we’re probably going to stay at level 2 until Auckland comes down but then again it is all speculation on my part.
I’ve been looking through the iCloud+ regarding the details of custom domain hosting and I’ve realised that although it sounded great at the time the problem is that there is a limit of three email addresses per person per domain which means it is very much limited to 3 email per user per domain. That may sound a lot but in my case I like to more than three email addresses – I tend to have different email addresses for different purposes so that I can keep track of which websites use which email address so then I know when a website has been compromised or starts emailing be spam so then I can quickly dispose of that email and create a new one to replace it.
Google Workspace is open option although Office 365 is also a viable option but I always like to keep my options open especially when one considers that in the net couple of months that not only the iPhone 13 and Pixel 6 will be launched, there is also a Microsoft Surface event scheduled where the much rumoured Surface Duo 2 will be announced. I really do hope that they’ve learned from their mistake such as not having NFC in the first generation device given how ubiquitous NFC technology is these days.
