Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Xbox Game Pass is picking up some great titles in May

You’ll want to pay attention to this one.

Plus: Buy an Xbox One and get Madden for free

App pick of the week: Google Chrome v68

You have to install Canary to get it, but Chrome 68 has a great new UI

Plus: Edge for mobile picks up Timeline support

Enterprise pick of the week: SQL Server on Linux now 30% off

But act fast! Limited time promotion on SQL Server on Linux is … limited

Codename pick of the week: Switchbot

Microsoft is working on bots aimed to make workers more productive. We already knew about Calendar.help. Now there’s also Switchbot (Bonus points for Nadella’s TA working on this.)

Beer pick of the week: Birrificio del Ducato La Luna Rossa

A beer pick from Italy! They make more thanjust  good wine there. This is a delightful cherry sour (available in bottles and sometimes on draft). Fermented in barrels with cherries added, plus part of a barley wine matured in Amarone barrels and part of another “young” beer.
