Leo, Mary Jo, and Paul discuss Microsoft at WWDC 2019, U.S. vs. Big Tech, tons of Windows 10 and Xbox news, and much more.
Tips and picks
Tip of the week: “Greatest” Xbox sale of the week is on
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.
Enterprise pick of the week: Skype (consumer) federation likely coming to Teams
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.
