Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Xbox One S with two controllers bundle

And 1 TB of storage. $299

App pick of the week: Microsoft To-Do

Now with faster mobile sync and a new design on the web

Also: A tip of sorts: To-do or calendar event? One way to differentiate.

Enterprise pick of the week: Azure DevOps

Goodbye VSTS. Hello Azure DevOps. Also: There’s a new GitHub pull request extension available now for you VS Code users.

Codename pick of the week: Kusto

Kusto seems to be the perpetual codename for Azure Log Analytics, a service beloved by a number of Microsoft teams obsessed with telemetry data. Will it become more and/or get more of a marketing push soon?

Beer pick of the week: Boulevard Brewing Tank 7

It’s technically fall here in these parts, so time for some more fallish beers. I tend to think of saisons and farmhouse ales as these kinds of beer. Boulevard Brewing (Kansas City, Mo.) makes an excellent farmhouse ale called Tank 7. Has that fruity profile of a Belgian saison, but also some nice hops and peppery flavors.

    LOL. "Consumery Features". In my opinion, Microsoft really doesn't care about consumers outside of Xbox. Every time they talk about "productivity" as drivers for things they're doing in Windows 10, you pretty much lose attention of consumers. It's all about the enterprise.
