Enterprise pick of the week: Avere (and its flash storage tech) join Microsoft

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!
