Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Save Big on Groove Music Pass

You can get 7 months of Groove Music Pass for just $9.99, through the end of the Labor Day weekend. Also, PCs are on sale at the Microsoft Store, including Surface.

Bonus tip: If you preordered Call of Duty: World War II on Xbox One, you can play it over the weekend

App pick of the week: ReCore Definitive Edition for Windows 10/Xbox One

Remastered for HDR and with tons of new content, ReCore Definitive Edition is the first Windows 10 game in Xbox Game Pass. It’s also an Xbox Play Anywhere title.

Bonus app pick: Parallels Desktop 13 for Mac makes it easier than ever to run Windows 10 apps on your Mac.

Enterprise pick of the week: Microsoft Unified Support

Last week, my codename was “Volta.” This week, I have more details on what Volta is and how it could affect businesses using Microsoft Premier support.

Enterprise pick of the week No. 2: How to think about feature updates and Windows Server

We know that MS is going to “launch” Windows Server 2016’s first feature update during Ignite. But how should IT pros think about upgrading once these feature updates begin? Hint: It’s not the same as how Windows 10 updates work. For Server, LTSC is a valid option for those who don’t want to update twice yearly.

Beer pick of the week: Evil Twin Sumo in a Sidecar

A nice 7% IPA with a little “umami” twist – hence the “sumo.” A little apricot, a little tang. From the Evil Twin folks (based in Denmark and Brooklyn).
