“Dad my mouse sucks!!” was the cry that carried into my home office. I grabbed the Lenovo Go Wireless Mouse off my shelf. I’ve been meaning to try this for a while, but I use a TrackBall when I’m desk-bound and the TrackPoint and Touchscreen all other times.



The mouse is conservatively but securely packed, and popped out with ease. From opening to handling it feels like a professional grade peripheral.



So whats in the box?

  • Mouse

  • Receiver

  • Charging Cable

  • Warranty & Instructions.


Its a nice looking and feeling mouse. Its light weight and fits very nicely in the hand. Its got some excellent ergonomics as you would expect from Lenovo.



Connectivity is flexible. The Wireless mouse can be connected via accompanying receiver or two separate Bluetooth channels.


Bluetooth & receiver connection took seconds to perform or switch between. Felt like a very slick operation.


Through the Lenovo Go App, once connected the mouse has various settings and options that can be adjusted, such as programmable buttons, application specific settings and sensitivity.


Charging options are both wireless and wired (via USB-C). Charging seems quick. Reports of 15 minute fast charge giving 1 week of use.



You know something making this a truly "magic mouse"... you can actually use it while its charging! 😲🍏😉



Precision and accuracy experience with the mouse is excellent and it glides well on my desk. Feels like a comfortably light mouse to use. A real all day device. Very nice indeed.


Handing the mouse over to the despondent child, he took it and dived into game play with it. A couple of hours later I heard… “DAD! This mouse is cool!”


If you haven’t looked at the Lenovo Go accessories ecosystem, I highly recommend it.


Well done Lenovo this is another a winner.

Here is my straightforward advice – If you read no further please take note of this:


Separate Microsoft 365 Global Admin permissions from day to day users.


If a user requires Global Admin permissions this should be granted through a second account secured with MFA used only for Admin Tasks and then logged back out.


DO NOT have Global Admin Permissions assigned to a user account used for day to day login and functionality. This is a Security Concern.



How can a compromised Global Admin User Account be used?

  • Change functional and security settings on its own account

  • Create additional user accounts

  • Add Licenses

  • Redirect email flow

  • Access All Data stored within an M365 service directly or grant permissions to it.

  • Run PowerShell commands and scripts against the tenant.

  • It can do anything at all within the Microsoft 365 Tenant up to and including closing it down.


Potential Compromise:

I have not researched how this could be done but while assisting a customer recently I conceived an attack such as the following could be possible.


An account even with MFA enabled could be compromised through an attack instigated with a Social Engineering or Phishing.


If a user that had global admin permissions is tricked into clicking on or running "something" which would run a PowerShell script to disable MFA for the user itself or something similar it make access easier for a nefarious party to then gain further access or functionality to the Microsoft 365 tenant.

I have been waiting a very long time to get my hands on the Lenovo Go Wireless ANC Headset and had very high hopes, I was not disappointed in the least. From packaging to user experience I'm extremely impressed with all aspects.


I like the minimalist but effective packaging. Its exactly what is needed and no more to get the headset to you and provide picture instruction.


Keen to give the headset a test drive and I have it 10 to 20 mins charge out of the box and it reported 12 hour battery life.


Build quality, materials, are all excellent and looks and feels like a professional durable device with well placed intuitive controls.



Setting up was extremely quick. It paired quickly with Windows Bluetooth, but using the accompanying dongle brought more options and increased control with the Lenovo Go Accessories App.


The headset is lightweight and comfortable, it was no problem to wear for most of my entire work day. It was on my head for most of 8 hours and caused no discomfort. Sound quality was excellent and there was no lag sound from calls or media.


There are a number of cool little features like the indicator light on the USB receiver. Normal connection & audio playback on the receiver is indicated by a blue light. A

Microsoft Teams call or conference connection is indicated by purple.





The only downside I have found to the headset of note is that it dampens background sound so well, 3 unexpected visits to my office by family members triggered fight of flight response and a need to add a lock to my office door!!
