Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Games with Gold for March is up

Check out what’s coming to Games with Gold this month.

App pick of the week: Google Fi

If you travel internationally at all, Google Fi is the way to go. Even if you don’t want to use the service at home. Also, data SIMs. Sign up and be sure to refer me for a $20 Fi credit!

Enterprise pick of the week: Windows Defender ATP finally supports Windows 7, 8.1

Quite a bit later than promised, Microsoft’s Windows Defender ATP service now also can work with Windows 7 and 8.1 endpoints.

Enterprise pick No. 2 of the week: Even more new Dynamics 365 apps are coming

Microsoft just added even more Dynamics 365 apps to its roadmap. On the list: Product Visualize, a Virtual Agent for Customer Service, Fraud Protection, and Customer Insights.

Beer pick of the week: Torch & Crown Intersect

It’s NY Beer Week. So it’s with great pleasure I can say that Manhattan again has its own brewery! And it’s a great one: Torch & Crown. They make an excellent session IPA called Intersect (with different versions using different hops) which is fully flavored, even at just 5%.

    <p>Am I alone in my opinion, or does anyone else find Windows Weekly to be much longer than it needs to be?&nbsp;This should be one hour every week.&nbsp;The topics are discussed much too long until they die slowly, and then they go to the next topic.&nbsp;The show needs better pacing.&nbsp;Introduce a topic, and then discuss it without going too long, and quickly move on to the next topic.&nbsp;They don't cover enough material or provide enough substance on each topic to warrant the show being 1.5 to 2 hours.</p>

      <blockquote><em><a href="#408273">In reply to conphila:</a></em></blockquote><p>I think the show is too long and they spend too much time rambling about stuff that's irrelevant. That's why I prefer Brad Sams or Windows Central unless I'm on a long drive. </p>

    <p>MJF – perhaps you could at the Chuwi AeroBook for a lappable device at an excellent price point!</p>

    <p>Windows Lite:</p><p>If it runs UWP only, it's DOA</p><p>If it runs Win32 programs but doesn't have a Start Menu, it ignores the Windows 8 backlash</p><p><br></p><p>At the end of the day, what functionality does it really provide that doesn't already exist? If it uses less code it might score brownie points with developers, but users won't care. </p>
