This week, Leo, Mary Jo, and I discuss the completion of Windows 10 version 1709, Redstone 4, Microsoft loses its Groove, and much more.
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.
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.
