Tip of the week: Managing Your Photo Collection in the Smart Phone Age
For years, I managed digital photos much like digital music, replicating the collection across multiple devices and to the cloud to ensure that our precious memories were never lost. But in a recurring theme, smart phones have changed everything. And it’s time to adapt to this change.

Codename pick of the week: Highlander

Beer pick of the week: Cascade Brewing Kriek Ale
Brewed with four kinds of cherries. Check. Aged a year in oak. Check. A sour in the ‘Belgian Flanders’ style. Check. It’s pricey and sort of rare, as it’s seasonal, but totally worth finding this delight from Portland, if you can: http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/cascade-kriek-ale/82022/
