Leo, Mary Jo, and I discuss an October Surface announcement, Windows 10 S, the Fall Creators Update, and much, much more.
Tips and picks

Bonus tip #2: Games with Gold is awesome this month
App pick of the week: Mixer Create for Android and iOS
Enterprise pick of the week: Olympia Corp.
Kind of a codename (maybe more like Contoso and Fabrikam?) … MS launches a new Enterprise Lab in the form of a virtual company (“Olympia Corp.”) for Windows 10 IT pro testers. Looking for real world testing capability for features like WDAG, Windows Hello for Business, O365, etc.
Codename pick of the week: Pendleton

Beer pick of the week: Allagash Tripel
Fall – or Autumn, if you prefer – is in the air here. So here come the delicious bigger beers. Allagash of Portland, Maine makes a really great tripel. Lots of fruit, honey, banana. Lovely golden color. 9%
