Codename pick of the week: 8828080

This could be the codename of the Andromeda tablet. Or maybe a reference to any device running the AndroidOS inside?  It also happens to be the main MS switchboard number 425-882-8080


Beer pick of the week: Founders Canadian Breakfast Stout (2017 vintage)

Imperial Stout brewed with a blend of coffees and imported chocolates, then aged in spent bourbon barrels that have most recently been aging pure Michigan maple syrup. Yep, it’s all that! And this year’s variant is nicely sweet and 11.7%. Boom!

    Hey Paul I've heard you mention several times that Cortana doesn't support rooms with Philips Hue. My office is the only room that I don't have a Google home of some kind, so while I was sitting at my computer (Surface Pro 4) I asked Cortana to turn on the lights in my office and it worked. It was way slower than my google home but it did in fact work so I'm not sure why it doesn't work for you.
