Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Games with Gold

This month’s Games with Gold has something for the ladies! No, wait, it’s for Star Wars fans.

App pick of the week: Office Mobile for Windows 10

Yes, Virginia, you can still run these simpler Office apps on your PC if you want.

Enterprise pick of the week: Power BI Premium

For bigger enterprises, Power BI Pro at $10 per user per month adds up fast. Power BI Premium is for companies who have enterprise-size analytics needs.

Codename pick of the week: Lynx

Lynx seems to be the codename of the Surface Laptop (says the ultimate leaker, The Walking Cat) My sources say he is right – yet again.

Beer pick of the week:  Pike Place Brewing Kilt Lifter

If you come to our Build meetup next week and like scotch ales, I’d suggest this.

Mark your calendars
