Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Store your secrets in OneDrive Personal Vault

The OneDrive Personal Vault feature is live. Use it.
Plus: Use Grasshopper to learn software development

Plus: OneDrive gets multiple instances on iPad

Tip pick of the week #2: Get Xbox Pass Ultimate, Get 6 Mos of Spotify for free

The new deal applies only to new Spotify Premium customers, sorry. Per Spotify

Enterprise pick of the week: Windows 7 ESUs are going to be available to SMBs, too

Business users worried about not getting security updates for Win 7 after Jan. 14, 2020 now have a (pricey) option to continue receiving them

Codename pick: Unity

Microsoft has a mobile Office app (codenamed Unity) that is different from all its other Office mobile apps. It’s more like Microsoft Works. And it’s already on select Samsung devices and will be coming to more Android phones, iPhones and maybe the Duo.

Beer pick of the week: Prairie Artisan Ales Basic Becky

It’s time to start with the pumpkin beers. There is a range from very pumpkin/squashy to very PSL (pumpkin spice latte). Prairie’s Basic Becky is anything but basic: It’s an imperial stout with coffee flavors. Tastes like a piece of chocolate-pumpkin fudge. Very delicious dessert beer(in a small pour).
