Tip of the week: Games with Gold
It’s November, so here we go. Also, 7 more games for Xbox Game Pass.
Also: Yes, Virginia, you can still clean install Windows 10 with a Windows 7/8 product key
App pick of the week: Mixer Beta for Android and iOS
It’s being completely rewritten.
Also: SwiftKey Beta for Android adds custom photo themes
And: Pocket gets continuous read aloud on Android
Enterprise pick of the week: Microsoft Connect (); 2017
Since we talked a lot of developer stuff earlier in the show, why not tout its upcoming developer event for mid-November in NYC. This is primarily an online event. Lots of .NET, data science tool stuff (maybe some new AI tool add-ons to Visual Studio), VS Code, SQL Server and more. Register for free and watch on Nov. 15.
Codename pick of the week: CrystalNet/MirrorNet
Microsoft has built a mirror of its Azure network over the past two years so it can test before deploying into production hardware/software changes it plans to make to it. This is CrystalNet (possibly known as MirrorNet in a previous life).
Beer pick of the week: Tree House Green
A toast to JLG, who is leaving Microsoft after 25 years. In her honor, a true cult beer from the infamous Tree House (Charlton, Mass.). The Tree House Green is one of their beloved favorites: A perfect IPA (7.5% ABV), with lots of tropical fruit flavors.
<p>Kinda funny how Paul seems so excited about PWAs, a web technology that's been around for a while. What next,….bluetooth?</p>
