Tips and picks

Tip of the week: A workaround for OneDrive Fetch

A lot of people are outraged by Microsoft killing OneDrive Fetch. But it’s not that big a deal if you know about another OneDrive feature.

App pick of the week: Stardock Curtains

It’s like Windowblinds on steroids, for Windows 10

Plus: Don’t forget, Halo 3 is out on PC!

And: Microsoft Launcher v6 is a big upgrade.

Enterprise pick of the week: Microsoft Inspire is next week

Microsoft’s annual partner show is next week. There’s usually some decent tech news unveiled at Inspire, along with strategy updates. It starts Tuesday with partner program announcements. Nadella, Smith, Julia White, Jared Spataro and other product folks are speaking Wed. The keynotes seem to be open to anyone to stream.

Codename pick of the week: Portmeirion

Project Portmeirion aims to explore hardware-software co-design for security in the Azure general-purpose compute stack. (thanks, Walking Cat). It’s part of Microsoft’s confidential computing push. And Portmeirion is a village in Wales, for those wondering.

Beer pick of the week: The Bruery The Brite: Hibiscus Lime

A fun pink sour that’s only 75 cals. It’s a sour blonde ale that almost doesn’t taste like a beer at all.  It’s from the excellent folks at The Bruery Terreux in Anaheim.

What do you do that needs more than that?"</p><p><br></p><p>I'm reminded of a similar comment from my father-in-law who, years ago, was an engineer for IBM's PC division: "We're designing a new PC that has a 10 MB hard drive! 10 MEGA-Bytes! You could never fill that in a lifetime!!"</p><p><br></p><p>Leo, what do you do that needs more than that? I have no doubt we'll find out soon enough!</p>
