New Games with Gold games plus a horror game sale

COD: Blackout is free all of April, has a new map

And …. Microsoft has made Groove all but unusable for anything but the most basic uses. It’s time to move on.

Enterprise pick of the week: Putting the ‘open’ in ODI (Open Data Initiative)

At Ignite last year, Microsoft, Adobe and SAP announced ODI with very few details.  A few more tidbits are starting to trickle out, with a handful of other companies joining an ODI advisory board. Will Salesforce, Oracle or other MS/Adobe customers ever join?

Codename pick of the week: Cayman

Could Microsoft be prepping to take on Shopify in the ecommerce hosting space? There’s a Microsoft ecommerce effort known as “Cayman,” which may provide some clues.

Beer pick of the week: Founders KBS 2019

The annual March release of Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout is making its way outside the Founders taproom. Coffee, chocolate, aged in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels. It’s worth the 12.5% ABV. If you want to try a bourbon-barrel aged stout, you cannot go wrong with KBS.
