Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Microsoft (often) offers the best trade-in value on Galaxy Note 10, 10+

Looking for a new Samsung Galaxy Note 10 or 10+? Microsoft might be your best bet. But you gotta move quick.

More: Windows 10 Field Guide has been updated for 19H2

More: Gears 5 is now available to everyone. But don’t buy it. Do this instead.

App pick of the week: Vivaldi

With this alternative browser now available on mobile too, it may be time to reconsider Vivaldi.

More: Microsoft’s first new PowerToys are out. One of them is worth considering.

Enterprise pick of the week: Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) evaluation lab

“Test security products the right way.” It’s Microsoft Defender ATP evaluation lab, which is now generally available. Create up to three Microsoft Defender ATP-provisioned machines with one click. Each is pre-onboarded to the environment and comes with the latest Windows 10, Office, Sysinternals, Java and more.

Codename pick of the week: Manganese

Microsoft is starting planning for the next “semester” of Azure and Windows. Vanadium is 19H2; Vibranium is 20H1. And Maganese (20H2) is next up.

Whiskey pick of the week: Macallan 12

Ant?? We are putting you on the spot. Macallan 12.
