Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Let’s make some Windows applications

I’ve decided to start a new Premium article series that will document the creation of some basic Windows applications. First up: A Notepad clone using Visual Basic, Windows Forms, and the .NET Framework. There are three posts so far: First Steps, A Little Formatting, and Icons and Open Files.

App pick of the week: Stardock TouchTasks

Stardock TouchTasks could make those with Windows 10 tablets much happier.

Plus: Firefox 70 adds a nifty online tracker dashboard

Plus: Opera gets colorful on Android

Enterprise pick of the week: Power Platform licensing is about to change in a  big (and not good) way

Microsoft is going to enable end users to buy/license Power Platform apps without going through their IT departments starting in mid-November.

Enterprise pick 2 of the week: About that Microsoft-SAP deal announced this week…

The latest “big” deal between the two is not new. It’s a continuation of the work, dating back to at least 2011, between the two to get SAP working well on Azure (along with other clouds). (You’ll likely hear this deal touted during today’s MS Q1 2020 earnings.)

Beer pick of the week: Austin Eastciders Spiced Cider

A tasty cider from Austin Texas that’s perfect for fall. Cinnamon, cardamom and cloves.

    Soltero’s “betrayal”? Ha. Nice characterization.

    now that leo is off on another cruise....spending all the TWIT money before it goes fat belly up......we have to endure this sargent guy. Who, if he is just pretending that he knows nothing about windows ( possibly true, as he makes rene ritchie seem like an apple hater) shouldn't be allowed anywhere near the host position. Man that show is boring in the last year.

    is there a technical reason that the USB connector on the Power Brick doesn't support it as a Data Connection? The Windows connector is capable of data, right? Sure would be nice if it were.
