Tip of the week: Get a second phone to test Windows 10 Mobile for phones

With this new build, Microsoft has finally arrived at a good place, quality wise. Just don’t put it on your daily driver. My advice: Pick up a low-end phone like a Lumia 635 and see the future on the cheap. You can get one now at Amazon for just $45.

Software pick of the week: Webroot SecureAnywhere

I spent some quality time with rootkits and 30+ forms of malware over the past few days and tried virtually everything to clean out my PC. The solution that worked best? WebRoot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus 2015. So I bought it. You can save big by not getting it directly from WebRoot. I got a downloadable 3-PC version for just $18 at Amazon.

Enterprise pick of the week: Office 365 Store coming soon

(Thanks @mvisser) MS is readying a new O365 storefront for O365 and Office 2016. Will be a front end to the Office Store.

Codename pick of the week: Project Tokyo

Project Tokyo: The Enterprise Data Directory Team is building new Azure based data directory service designed to help connect the right people to the right data. (thanks @h0x0d)

Beer pick of the week: Bear Republic Tartare Rouge

A great sour/wild ale from the guys who are famous for Racer 5:
