No need to wait on Microsoft.

Enterprise pick of the week: Biz users beware of possible Microsoft support price hikes

Codename pick of the week: Cobalt

A pick from the vault: The codename for the x86 emulation in Windows on ARM is Cobalt. We first heard this back in 2016, but worth a reminder, now that it is actually happening: http://www.zdnet.com/article/microsofts-x86-on-arm64-emulation-a-windows-10-redstone-3-fall-2017-deliverable/ And what’s this hint about a “Cobalt PC”?

Beer pick of the week: Firestone Walker Helldorado

A blonde barleywine. Yes! And it’s Hellishly Delicious. From those beer wizards in Paso Robles: Bourbon, honey, vanilla and more. (Caution: 12.8%)
