Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Download your purchased Groove music NOW

Forget Groove Music Pass: If you actually bought music from Microsoft, you have until January 1 to download it, and then it’s lost forever.

Bonus tip: Games with Gold and new Xbox Game Pass games for October

App pick of the week: Paint.NET is in the Store

Paint.NET is in the Store and it’s only $5 through the end of October. Buy it.

Bonus pick: SwiftKey for Android updated with new UX and default themes

Enterprise pick of the week: Azure Data Box

If you liked Amazon’s AWS Snowball, you may also be interested in Azure Data Box, which is now in preview. Gives users a way to put their data in a physical appliance and upload to the cloud.

Bonus pick: New Dynahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh9999999999999999999mics 365 for Talent apps from Microsoft. And a new Talent app from LinkedIn that doesn’t use any MSFT analytics technology (?)

Codename pick of the week: AndromedaOS

We’ve mentioned this in passing before, but let’s dig a bit deeper into the ‘other’ Andromeda – the software piece.

Beer pick of the week: Cigar City Good Gourd

It’s officially Fall and pumpkin season. I don’t find a lot of pumpkin beers I really like. This one from Cigar City, though, is pretty tasty.
