Leo, Mary Jo, and I discuss Xbox All Access, Intel’s latest 8th generation chips, a weird zero-day flaw, and much, much more.
Tips and picks
Tip of the week: You can use your Xbox One controller on Android now
App pick of the week: Get the Pixel launcher(ish) on almost any Android handset
Bonus pick: Modern Warfare 2 is on Xbox One Backward Compatibility.
Enterprise picks of the week: A couple new cloud tidbits – OneDrive and Skype (for Biz)
Microsoft announces OneDrive for Business features, calls it OneDrive, and confuses everyone. Again.
Codename pick of the week: TDBN (Tidbin)
Raymond Chen has a good post about some now-defunct Windows 8 codenames. At the time it was developed/introduced, a certain Windows boss tried to ban any fun codenames. So it’s cool to get to hear about Charms (which was a codename first); TDBN and “six pack.”
Beer pick of the week: Jack’s Abby House Lager
We’re coming up on Labor Day here in the U.S. You need some cookout beers. Why not try a craft lager? May I suggest one from my home town, Jack’s Abby in Framingham. They make a nice, basic, easy-drinking House Lager.
