Tips and picks
Tip of the week: Make the move to YouTube Music
A lot of people are down on YouTube Music because it’s not just like Google Play Music. But it has one major advantage that makes it the single best music service available.
App pick of the week: Parallels Desktop 16
Codename pick of the week: Deschutes
Microsoft’s coming CloudPC service has a codename: Deschutes. It *might* be named for the brewery which makes the excellent Fresh Squeezed IPA. Or maybe (and more likely) it’s named for the place/river in Oregon.
Codename pick 2 of the week: Oakdale
Oh, Dynamics 365/Power Platform team… how did this happen? You seemingly infringed on another company’s branded trademark. But at least we have Project Oakdale, the version of the soon-to-be-renamed Dataflex for Teams.
Beer pick of the week: Deschutes Brewing Black Butte porter
One more Deschutes mention this week. In addition to their lovely IPA, they make a fantastic porter called Black Butte. It’s a really solid 5.2% one with all the tasty chocolate/coffee notes. Not a true summer beer, but it might be really good with s’mores. Just sayin
