Tips and picks

Tip of the week: You’re still going to need an ad blocker

Google is putting an ad blocker in Chrome! No it isn’t.

PLUS: HOLY S#$T WINKEY + CTRL + c

App pick of the week: Tweeten

Tweeten is available now in a major new version and across a variety of platforms. One Twitter client to rule them all?

Also: Amazon Music makes a surprise appearance in the Microsoft Store for Windows 10. Ahead of iTunes.

Enterprise pick of the week: Microsoft for Startups

Microsoft is looking to bring more startups to Azure and is dangling $500 million worth of resources (including assistance in co-selling to the enterprise). 

Codename pick of the week: Seville

One from the Microsoft codename vault. Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) started out life as a mystery service codenamed Seville. Why Seville? Good question – beyond MSFT’s fondness for geographic codenames. Maybe it was the flamenco dancing?

Beer pick of the week: The Bruery White Chocolate

We need a chocolate goodie for Valentine’s Day, right? How about a lovely beer from San Diego that really does taste like white chocolate!
