Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Gift Windows and Xbox games from the Microsoft Store
It should be completely rolled out by now

App pick of the week: State of Decay 2
State of Decay 2 is an Xbox Play Anywhere title, so its compatible with both Xbox One and Windows 10. Oh, and it has zombies.

Enterprise pick of the week: Unified Speech Service
Microsoft is working on consolidating its many speech services

Codename pick of the week: Aruba
Microsoft isn’t yet ready to talk about the underpinnings of Surface Hub 2. We think it will be one of the first Windows Core OS devices running a composable shell. The shell for Surface Hub 2 is codenamed Aruba.

Beer pick of the week: Jester King Noble King Hoppy Farmhouse Ale
One of the most famous of all the craft breweries, Jester King (Austin, Texas) is starting to broaden its distribution. This beer is a farmhouse/saison at 5.3 percent. Very light, refreshing golden ale. Hoppy but not overly so.
