Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Don’t travel internationally without this tech

  • Google Fi for the win, again
  • A good VPN, I use ExpressVPN
  • Google Translate
  • A travel power strip (U.S.-based) with USB ports – Also, a USB-C mini-hub with Ethernet

App pick of the week: Google Chrome 76

Chrome 76 blocks Flash by default, prevents Incognito Mode discovery, and adds the Install button for PWAs.

Plus: DOOM, DOOM II, and DOOM 3 come to mobile and Switch!

Enterprise pick of the week: Microsoft buys BlueTalon

Can you say Azure Data Governance? Yes, you can

Enterprise pick No. 2 of the week: It’s time to check out Microsoft Learn (again)

When Microsoft launched its Learn training site last fall, the content was quite limited and very developer focused. Since then, it has been filling out and now includes some good IT pro content, including quite a bit around Azure and Dynamics 365. (thanks to Rick Claus for the tip)

Beer pick of the week: Austin EastCiders Rose Dry Cider

Want a cross between a cider and a rose wine? Here you go. From Austin, Texas, a refreshing, dry cider made with hibiscus and rose: “This is rose done the Texas way”
