Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Design a custom Xbox One Wireless controller

And now you can do it in the UK, France, and Germany (in addition to the US and Canada)

Plus: Xbox One S bundles are now on sale. They’re always on sale.

App pick of the week: Firefox 54

Now with multi-processing and RAM usage improvements

Enterprise pick of the week: Power BI Premium goes GA

The new Premium version of Power BI is out. Power BI Premium is an add-on to Pro that’s for enterprise customers. Users who need to create content in Power BI will still require a $10/month Power BI Pro seat, but there is no per-seat charge for consumption. Premium can be added to specific Power BI workspaces belonging to the customer or all such workspaces, across the board

Enterprise pick of the week No. 2: Microsoft Teams guest access

I’ve had a couple folks asking about this recently. Just a reminder: Teams is supposed to start getting guest access before the end of June. So stay tuned!

Beer pick of the week: Barrier Earth

Brown ales don’t always have to be either A) Insipid or B) Over the top (raisin, cookie, coffee, peanut butter). A well made, basic brown ale is a pleasure. Barrier Brewing in New York makes an excellent one.

Reminder: We’re in Haarlem, NL next week

We’re having a Haarlem House Party on June 21 at the Philharmonie in Haarlem

Office 365: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly at 5:45 pm to 6:45 with MJ, Paul, Brad and Tony Redmond (kind of a day two closing keynote)

Meetup at 6:45 pm

Windows Weekly live at 8:00 pm
