Tips and picks
Tip of the week: Two ways to get Cortana on your Android device’s lock screen
In the past week or so, Microsoft has provided two different ways to get Cortana all over your phone: Microsoft Launcher and the Cortana app.
Plus: Games with Gold!
App pick of the week: Opera 51
Enterprise pick of the week: OneDrive for Business switch offer
After months of partner love, Microsoft finally takes the gloves off and starts going after Box, Dropbox and Google Drive with a new business offer.
Codename pick of the week: The other “Polaris”
Polaris is the codename for an evolving Desktop shell for Windows. But it’s also more, as reader/listener Scott Dynes recently informed me. Polaris also is a cross-platform, minimalist web framework for PowerShell. It’s built on .NET Standard and you can find it online.
Beer pick of the week: Boulder Shake Chocolate Porter
A nice, easy-drinking porter from Boulder Brewing in Colorado. Cacao nibs and “chocolate wheat” make this very chocolately. And just 5.9%.
