Tip of the week: Disable Skype integration in Windows 10 Mobile (and W10 for PCs)

Just say no to Skype integration. And live a saner life. Even better: Uninstall these terrible apps on Windows 10.

Software picks of the week: All Microsoft mobile apps this week

iOS: Microsoft Selfie app – now with selfie-stick and sharing support – plus the weird new News Pro app –  (which Microsoft finally explained)

Windows phones (and Windows 10): Audible gets streaming support!

Android: Mimicker Alarm

Enterprise pick of the week: Azure Stack Technical Preview 1

Microsoft’s “hybrid” platform for users who want to run something very similar to Azure in their own datacenters  — a k a Azure Stack — will be available Jan. 29 for testing

Codename pick of the week: Ibiza

One from the archives. Azure Portal was codenamed Ibiza. And Azure Portal is one of the elements in Azure Stack.

Beer pick of the week: Almanac Valley of the Heart’s Delight

A really nice sour blond (in honor of Blonde JoeB) from Almanac in San Francisco. With apricots, dates and mulberries aged in wine barrels!
