Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Get the Fall Creators Update on your schedule

Immediately

Or later

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.

Plus: Microsoft Edge Preview for Android is now available

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!)
