Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Give Game Pass for PC a shot

I’m going to turn off my Xbox One X and use a gaming PC going forward. And Xbox Game Pass for PC will be a key part of this experiment.

App pick of the week: Outlook … on mobile, not the PC

Outlook got new multitasking features on iPadOS this week. It remains the best mobile email client.

Enterprise pick of the week: System Center 2019 Update Rollup 1 is out

It’s finally here and chock full of System Centerish goodies.

Codename pick of the week: Aruba

Remember when Surface Hub 2X was supposed to be an instantiation of WCOS plus the “Aruba” shell? That no longer seems to be what’s happening. We know now that the plan for Surface Hub is to get it running some kind of Windows variant based on 20H1.

Beer pick of the week: Allagash Tripel

A Belgian tripel from the good folks at Allagash in Portland, Maine. Allagash Tripel is a nice beer for winter when you’re getting burned out on all those big imperial stouts. Golden with notes of honey and banana. 9%
