Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Get two Sonos speakers for the price of one HomePod

A hilarious new Sonos promotion can save you $50, not to mention your soul
Plus: Buy any Xbox One and get a free game. Yes, including X!

App pick of the week: OneDrive and Office apps for iOS

Especially important for iPad Pro.

Plus: Ink to Code, an intriguing new app generator, um, app

Plus: WhatsApp’s desktop app now on the store

Enterprise pick of the week: Azure Standard Support

Just got $200 cheaper. (Thanks, AWS!) More on the fine print.

‘Microspeak’ pick of the week: Pentad

Beer pick of the week: Avery Ginger Sour

Avery Brewing is known for some big, barrel-aged beers. But they make some awesome sours (barrel-aged and not), too. This Ginger one is like a shot of ginger in a sour beer form.
