Leo, Mary Jo, and I discuss this week’s blockbuster Microsoft hardware news, a new user interface for Office, Windows 10, E3, and more.
Tips and picks
Tip of the week: Windows 10 Field Guide is now just $9.99
App pick of the week: Microsoft To-Do
Enterprise pick of the week: Visual Studio 2019
Codename pick of the week: BlackForest
Nice find by Aidan Finn (@joe_elway). We knew that Fairfax was the codename for the Azure Government cloud and Mooncake for China. But I don’t think I ever heard BlackForest was for the Azure Germany cloud. A reminder why Azure Germany matters.
Beer pick of the week: Allagash Coolship Resurgam
Allagash Brewing is making a bunch of excellent coolship beers. This one, Resurgam, is a blend of various “spontaneously fermented” beers. Tart and refreshing. The Resurgam name comes from Portland, Maine’s motto: “I shall rise again.”
