Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Before a White Christmas, a Black Friday

Microsoft, like other retailers, is hosting a lot of great sales this coming long weekend and beyond.

Note, too, that other retailers will often have the physical goods for the same prices.

App pick of the week: and Outlook on the Web

You can now use these web apps like real apps. Here’s how.

Enterprise pick of the week: ODI: What’s next?

The MicrosoftSAP/Adobe Open Data Initiative has gone quiet as of late. But things are still percolating.

Enterprise pick No. 2 of the week: Chredge for commercial users

This was glossed over a bit at Ignite, but when Microsoft rolls out Chredge v.1 on January 15, the team is looking at this as a release for businesses.  Anyone will be able to get and use it starting then, but officials have hinted there will be more consumer- and dev-focused Chredge features coming in the spring.

Beer pick of the week: Proclamation Ale Co. Tendril

When in New England, go for the New England IPAs. Especially when in Rhode Island, go local. Proclamation is based in Warwick and is making some very nice beers of all kinds. The Tendril IPA, at 7%, is an excellent example of the style and a nice Turkey Day option.

    <p>When PWAs get access to the file system, wouldn't that open up a big security vulnerability? Browsers have a responsibility to sandbox and protect the user from privacy vulnerabilities right? Am I missing something?</p>

    <p>Just a comment on the discussion around the XBOX One S All Digital Edition. I'm 99.9% sure that you _can_ expand the storage beyond 1TB via external USB storage. </p><p><br></p><p>You can expand storage on the XBOX One, XBOX One S and XBOX One X by plugging in an external USB drive (I've done so on all three consoles as I've upgraded over time) so I'm nearly 100% sure you can also expand the storage of the XBOX One S All Digital Edition via an external USB drive as well.</p>
