Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Games with Gold!

A day early, but you can get started on March’s games right now.

Plus: COD:WWII gamers on Xbox/PC have a nice addition coming this week

App pick of the week: Grammarly for mobile

Grammarly for Android was just updated

Plus: Microsoft Edge for iOS updated with 3D touch

Enterprise pick of the week: True guest access to be available for MS Teams starting March 5


Plus: There might be a free, standalone version of Teams coming after all (nice one, Fireman Sams!)

Codename pick of the week: Zanzibar

Another interesting find from The Cat That Walks in the Night (and an assist from Tero Alhonen). Zanzibar is “a new sensing platform that enables novel forms of play and interaction” that is from Microsoft Research in Cambridge, UK. It seems to be part of the Connected Play initiative.

Beer pick of the week: Other Half Forever Ever

It’s craft beer week in NYC! One of my favorite breweries is Other Half in Brooklyn. They make amazing IPAs of all strengths. Forever Ever is their sessionable yet deliciously hoppy 4.7 -er that every beer drinker (other than Paul) would love
