Picks and tips

Tip of the week: Redmondize your Android phone

While Apple’s iPhone is popular in certain countries, Android owns a near monopoly in the smartphone market. And it’s the go-to mobile choice for the Windows Guy. So let’s make it better.

App pick of the week: Visual Studio Preview

Tired of production software after just a week? No worries: Visual Studio has an Insider program of its own!

Plus: Arrow Launcher 3.1 for Android

Plus: Skype extension for Chrome picks up email and Twitter support.

Enterprise pick of the week: Microsoft Tech Summit recordings

Want more free content about Windows, Office 365, Azure, SQL Server and more? Check out … especially the Microsoft Tech Summits content call out on the home page.  Here’s the collection of Windows content from the Summits, for example.

Lots of good stuff, free! (MS Tech Summits are 2-day free cloud training seminars from MS that happen worldwide and are geared toward IT pros.)

Codename pick of the week: Barcelona

The Windows Defender Application Guard feature in Win 10 (codenamed Barcelona) isn’t going to make it into Creators Update; it’s now likely a RS3 feature, as I and others had kind of expected.

Beer pick of the week: O’Hara’s Irish Stout

Because it’s that time of year: Why not an Irish stout from Ireland?
