Tip of the week: Beneath a Surface

I’ve finally finished editing Brad’s book. And it’s shipping next week.

Also: The best deals from Microsoft’s Black Friday sale.

App pick of the week: Microsoft Launcher

Microsoft’s last major release of Microsoft Launcher in 2018 brings Sticky Notes and Microsoft To-Do integration, screen time tracking, Cortana commute/traffic and multi-destination capabilities, and more.

Enterprise pick of the week: Microsoft buys FSLogix

MS is  increasingly serious about virtualizing Office apps, which is a good thing.  Now they’ve bought a company to help them make Office virtualization work even better.

Enterprise pick of the week No. 2: Cognitive services are now in containers (near you)

Microsoft is really taking this whole AI and intelligent edge thing up a notch with previews of some of its cognitive services already loaded into containers.

Beer pick of the week: Goose Island Bourbon County Stouts

Tomorrow (day after Thanksgiving) is the day for the annual release of Goose Island Bourbon County Stout. There are a number of different varieties – something for everyone.  I haven’t had the 2018 vintage, but if they’re like recent years, they’ll be big, boozy and tasty.
