Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Xbox Game Pass member? Know this

Games also disappear from Game Pass. But you can buy games on Game Pass for 20 percent off. So you should do that when you find out a game is leaving.

App pick of the week: Game services for the PC curious

Everyone has heard about Steam, but two newer services, the Epic Game Store and Xbox Game Pass for PC, might be more interesting to those coming from consoles. Epic offers a free game every week!

Enterprise pick of the week: Azure Bastion

A new Azure service for accessing remotely VMs without having to use the ‘dirty’ public Internet: Azure Bastion. It’s now in public preview.

Codename pick of the week: EPIC

Essential Product Inclusive Community (EPIC) is the name of the team that JoeB runs these days. (Many folks have heard the EPIC acronym, but it is seldom spelled out the whole way.) EPIC includes Windows 10, Edge, OneNote, mobility experiences for Android and iOS (Launcher, ToDo, MileIQ, Edge, etc.) and Microsoft News.

Beer pick of the week: Henhouse Brewing Keanu is Immortal

Leo’s pick this week. Henhouse in Petaluma “Keanu is Immortal” is the beer.  American IPA 6.8%. John Wick fans (and foes) agree it is a good beer.
