Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Get 2 months of Xbox Game Pass for $1

Buy one month of Xbox Game Pass for $2 and get another month for free. Then use that time to play Crackdown 3 instead of buying it.

Plus: Xbox One is on sale again, but this time it includes some accessories

App pick of the week: Greenshot

Thanks to Laurie Baranowski for the suggestion: Greenshot is a great (and free) screenshot tool with support for mouse cursor capture.

Plus: Zoho Suite is a free set of great web apps that can replace Office or Google Docs

Enterprise pick of the week: SAC-T gets sacked

The servicing branches for Windows 10 for business users continue to morph. SAC-T (Targeted) is going away with 1903. Bryan Dam has an excellent write-up of what’s happening.

Enterprise pick of the week No. 2: Windows 7, Server 2008 users – make sure you’re patched for SH-2

If you don’t get patched for SH-2, you get no more Windows updates after July.

Beer pick of the week: Toppling Goliath Pseudo Sue

Pseudo Sue, an American Pale Ale, brewed in Iowa, is named for the largest T-Rex fossil ever discovered. It’s nicely bitter, hoppy yet smooth and very drinkable at 6.2 percent. Toppling Goliath is finally starting to distribute here in NYC! (And other new markets, too, I believe)


Don’t forget to tune in to watch Microsoft’s Mobile World Congress press conference on Sunday Feb. 24. Starts at 9 am PT/12 noon ET. Betting we’ll see HoloLens Next!
