Tips and picks

Tip of the week: “Greatest” Xbox sale of the week is on

Every year, they do this. This year, they’re doing it again

App pick of the week: Sigil

DOOM co-creator John Romero has just released a new MegaWAD for the original (1993) DOOM! It’s called Sigil. Of course, you’ll need the original DOOM ($6, I recommend GOG) and some way of making it look better on a modern Windows PC. I recommend GZDOOM.

Plus: Firefox now enables tracking protection by default

Enterprise pick of the week: Skype (consumer) federation likely coming to Teams

It’s back on the “under consideration” list

Codename pick of the week: “Teams for Life”

Microsoft is continuing to wrestle with how to make its business products and services more interesting to (pro)sumers. Sounds like they’re trying to make a case for families and friends using Teams – basically to combat WhatsApp. It’s known (for now) as “Teams for Life.”

Beer pick of the week: Oedipus Brewing Offline white ale

A pick from a Dutch-based craft brewery: Oedipus in Amsterdam. This Oedipus Offline is a dry hopped wit that’s easy drinking and ready for those who want to unplug.

    Microsoft's response to the Mac ads were the Jerry Seinfeld commercials. I think it was called Windows without Walls. It wasn't the Mojave experiment
