Leo, Mary Jo, and I discuss Surface Book 2, a faster-than-expected Fall Creators Update roll out, Windows on ARM, and much more.
Tips and picks
Tip of the week: Get the Fall Creators Update on your schedule
App pick of the week: Microsoft + Android
Should Microsoft make its own Android handsets? Maybe. But you can do it yourself right now if you want.
Enterprise pick of the week: Cloud service map for AWS and Azure
This is amazing. Now you actually can compare AWS and Azure offerings side-by-side. Available also as downloadable PDF.
Codename pick of the week: Pyxis & Zariah
Sounds like the new Surface Book 2 may have been codenamed Pyxis & Zariah (says The Walking Cat). He also says Vail is the codename of the new mouse. So what’s the theme here, if there is one. Good question.
Beer pick of the week: Weird Beard Sorachi Face Plant
A tribute to my new kitty Sorachi (yes, named for the Sorachi hop): Weird Beard’s Sorachi Face Plant IPA. This London-based brewer made a strong, hoppy but also quite malty IPA. (Thanks to Steve Brown for the bottle!)
