Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Buy a Signature PC

The PC industry is facing an existential crisis, but Microsoft already has the solution: Signature PCs provide the clean, reliable and secure alternative to the crapware-laden PCs that its partners sell. You should demand a Signature PC and accept nothing less.

Plus: Get a new Gamertag, there are almost 1 million legacy names available again for the first time in ten years.

AdDuplex mobile app pick of the week: Instagram for Windows 10 Mobile

Instagram for Windows 10 Mobile is released with the controversial new logo (but not the icon) and a new user interface.

Plus: Microsoft Health is now available on Windows 10 PCs too.

Plus: DOOM.

Enterprise pick of the week: GigJam

Microsoft opens public preview of one of its hardest-to-explain new services: GigJam. It’s a collaboration service that’s all about “molecules of work.”

Codename pick of the week: Beihai

We still don’t know what Kudo Tsunoda’s Beihai app is. But now we know he’s working on some other, possibly related projects out of a new MS Evoke Studio. Evoke is working on some kind of new photo/video creation/access service.

Beer pick of the week: Avery White Rascal

There are so many good Avery beers (as Paul and I can personally attest). But here’s one that’s available year round and should be perfect for Spring: White Rascal, a Belgian Style White: https://www.averybrewing.com/beers/white-rascal
