Picks

Tip of the week: Hold off on buying a new PC

October/November is going to see an amazing influx of new hardware, and while we can’t talk about some of it quite yet, it’s worth waiting for.

Software pick of the week: Gears of War Ultimate Edition for Xbox One

I finally found a game to replace COD, at least temporarily. But it’s a 9 year old game. Sort of.

Enterprise pick of the week: SharePoint 2016

Tech preview one of SharePoint Server 2016 and new hybrid search offering are now available

Codename pick of the week: Chicago

A blast from the Windows 95 past. Win 95, which turned 20 this week, was codenamed Chicago.  Who else remembers Memphis, aka Windows 98? Or Nashville, the never-to-be-released Windows 96?

Beer pick of the week: New Belgium Fat Tire

Ninety-five years ago today, women won the right to vote. So how about a beer from a woman-owned brewery? New Belgium co-founder Kim Jordan & Co. make a super-easy-to-find and easy to drink amber: Fat Tire. Nothing fancy, but decent. http://www.beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/192/607/
