Tips and picks

Tip of the week: It’s time for Microsoft to put up or shut up

Tomorrow’s the day: Microsoft will have its first real Xbox Series X games promotion!

App pick of the week: Microsoft Edge

With Microsoft Edge 84, we see some minor functional improvements, but a big fix for performance. Why aren’t you using this browser yet?

Enterprise pick of the week: Azure Stack HCI v2

It’s a mouthful. But for customers who want to use their own servers and connect to Azure services, the second iteration of Azure Stack HCI v2 might be the ticket. It’s now in public preview.

Codename pick of the week: Cloud (and CloudE)

A blast from the codename vault. Who remembers the codenames Windows “Cloud” and “CloudE“? In the end, both of these became Windows 10 S. But as Albacore (@TheBookIsClosed) on Twitter reminded me this week, Cloud started out as a discontinued Windows 10 SKU (replaced by S Mode). And “CloudE,” though branded as 10 S, was actually something that never really debuted, Windows 10 Lean.

Beer pick of the week: Uiltje Brewing Company Crybaby

It’s another beer pick in honor of Steward Butterfield. And even better: he Uiltje Brewing co. is based in Haarlem in the Netherlands. Crybaby is a fruited berliner weisse which they describe as “casually tart.” They say: “the only person we are calling a cry baby is the buster who sips our beautiful little Berliner Weisse and complains that it is, uhm…. sour”
