關於 Hacker News 上在討論 Microsoft Teams 的一些有趣的發現

Hacker News 上看到「Ask HN: Why is MS Teams so slow, do devs test Teams on less powerful machines?」這串討論,發起的作者提到了超級吃資源的問題:

I have a laptop with an i5 processor and 8G of RAM. Hard drive is an SSD. It sometimes takes me a full minute and a half to get Teams open and ready to join a meeting. It is driving me crazy.

可以預期下面本來就會有一堆人在抱怨,不過意外看到有趣的回應:

Ex office dev here. Actual dev work is done on i9 workstations running 64 gb of ram, and usually located very near an Azure data center, regardless of where the dev works. The result is that it's fast for us.

Everyone knows that it runs like poop, but there are other priorities, and no performance regression tests.

所以你應該只要電腦夠暴力 + 離機房夠近就會快了 XDDD

的確像是最上面的 comment 提到的,開發者因為都用 MBP,至少還能動 (因為機器夠快),但其他團隊則是一直幹勦:

At my company, the developers are all on fairly powerful MacBook Pros, and everyone else in the company has Windows laptops (I think generally Surface devices)

For the developers, Teams works... as good as Teams can. So not great, but it works most of the time (for me, anyway). For everyone else though, I hear nothing but issues. Constantly having to restart to make Teams work. And again, this is on Surface devices, so Microsoft is making the app, the OS, and the hardware!

Pixel 3 無法撥打 911 的問題

Hacker News 首頁上看到「Pixel prevented me from calling 911」這則 Reddit 上的發文,提到 Pixel 3 無法撥打 911 的問題,另外 Hacker News 上的討論在這邊可以看到:「Pixel prevented me from calling 911 (reddit.com)」。

hnrvsr1 這則 comment 可以看到,目前 Google 確認了這個軟體 bug,在 Anrdoid 10 上有安裝 Microsoft Teams,並且是在沒有登入的情況下,就會中這個 bug:

Based on our investigation we have been able to reproduce the issue under a limited set of circumstances. We believe the issue is only present on a small number of devices with the Microsoft Teams app installed when the user is not logged in, and we are currently only aware of one user report related to the occurrence of this bug. We determined that the issue was being caused by unintended interaction between the Microsoft Teams app and the underlying Android operating system. Because this issue impacts emergency calling, both Google and Microsoft are heavily prioritizing the issue, and we expect a Microsoft Teams app update to be rolled out soon – as always we suggest users keep an eye out for app updates to ensure they are running the latest version.

這個 bug 聽起來像是有什麼東西在 sandbox 裡沒擋好,被 app 干擾到緊急撥號的流程... 所以 Google 也承諾 Android 的部份也會有對應的更新:

We will also be providing an Android platform update to the Android ecosystem on January 4.

不確定台灣的 110、112 與 119 會不會有類似的問題...
