Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Buy an Xbox One X, get a free game

Another week, another Xbox One sale

App pick of the week: Send/receive text messages from your (Android) phone in Windows

Looking for something like iMessage integration on Mac? I know about two good options:

  • AirText – thanks to Andrew “handsome” Zarian – I’m testing this one now
  • MightyText

Enterprise pick of the week: Azure Blockchain Workbench

Now (as of Build, actually) in public preview, Azure Blockchain Workbench. Plus documentation.

Enterprise pick No. 2: Key apps for Windows Phone get a delay in going dark

May 20 has come and gone. That was supposed to be when MS was killing Teams and Skype for Biz for Windows Phone. But MS had a slight change of heart.

Beer pick of the week: Bruery Terreux Tart of Darkness with Currants

A sour stout aged in Oak with currants: A derivative of Tart of Darkness that is just as, if not more, delightful than the original. It’s roasty yet sour. Sounds weird but try it. It’s darn tasty!
