Tip of the week: Games with Gold
App pick of the week: Pocket
With Mozilla acquiring Pocket, a nice reminder about this amazing “read it later” app and service.
Enterprise pick of the week: Windows 10 Virtual Labs
Thanks Casey Hill (@caseyinorlando) for this one. MS is making available instructional “labs” to help IT pros try out Windows 10 setup, deployment, and management scenarios. YOu get instructions, and access to one or more virtual machines, with no additional software or setup required.
Codename pick of the week: Project Arches

Beer pick of the week: Modern Times Black House
Three words. Coffee oatmeal stout. So good. So drinkable! Chocolate/coffee/yumminess from Modern Times Brewing in San Diego (and only 5.8%)
