Software pick of the week: Classic Shell
Enterprise pick of the week: Visual Studio 2015 CTP6
There are a few nice surprises inside the latest VS 2015 test release, including UI debugging tools for XAML (WPF only for now, but Windows Store app support coming). And edit and continue improvements
Codename pick of the week: Project Blush
Microsoft Research is doing some work around “digital jewellery” (related to wearables/IoT). Codename is Project Blush. Seems to be work out of the Human-Computer Interaction team in MSR. (hat tip: Felix the Cat)
Beer pick of the week: Founders Black Rye
Founders made a dark, hoppy beer before Black IPAs were cool. And they’ve brought the classic back. Good for Black IPA and rye fans, both.
