Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Yes, you can run legacy Edge and new Edge side-by-side

Here’s how. (But seriously. Why?)

Also: Reminder that Batman: The Telltale Series and LEGO Star Wars II are now available via Games with Gold

App pick of the week: Microsoft Launcher Preview

The Microsoft Launcher Preview is absolutely a look at the UI we’re going to get on Surface Duo.

Enterprise pick of the week: Power Platform warning for IT admins

A reminder for IT admins in shops using the Power Platform: Unless you take action, starting this week, your users are going to be able to buy and deploy Power Platform apps with no IT approval needed.

Codename pick of the week: Vader

This is a MS-internal codename, I hear. And it is for the internally MS-piloted version of Windows Virtual Desktop running on the latest  (20H2) Windows 10 builds. I wonder if there’s a Darth??

Beer pick of the week: Athletic Brewing Upside Down Golden Ale

Non-alcoholic beers have a bad (often justifiably so) rap. But Athletic Brewing in Stratford, Conn. Is trying to change this with some super low alcohol beers that actually don’t taste like water. Upside Down is  their golden ale that clocks in at .4%.
