Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Waiting on a Surface Pro 4.5/5? Maybe it’s time for a more modern alternative

Creators who are getting tired of waiting on Microsoft to revise its Surface Pro lineup have an interesting and more modern new alternative to consider: Samsung has launched its new Galaxy Book 2-in-1.

App pick of the week: Movies & TV

Even those Windows 10 users who are never going to purchase movies or TV shows from Microsoft’s online store should check out the Movies & TV app, which gets a nice refresh with the Creators Update.

Enterprise pick of the week: Linkedin and Dynamics 365 – the integration begins

Microsoft starts to integrate LinkedIn with Dynamics

Codename pick of the week: Are you hungry? Office team has you covered

Soup, Samwitch, Breakfast, Dinner, Tapas: All codenames that seem to be for the coming full versions of Office apps that soon will be available in the Windows Store (thanks to the Centennial Bridge). Thanks to @h0x0d, the Walking Cat, for finding these

Beer pick of the week: Upland Brewing Irdescent

I don’t think I’ve ever had a beer from these excellent brewers in Bloomington, Indiana until recently. This ginger-apricot sour was a great introduction.

Mark your calendars

May 1 at RattleNHum East on 33rd Street: Meetup the day before MS’ May 2 EDU event in NYC. 5 to 8 pm. No RSVP needed

May 11 somewhere in downtown Seattle: Build 2017 meetup. Venue should be finalized in next day or 2. We’ll tweet it out! Also no RSVP needed
