Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Can’t get enough of MJF and Paul? (and who can’t??)

We recorded an episode of MJFChat that focuses on learning

App pick of the week: A few choices

Games: Flight Simulator, of course.

Brave, now with improved sync. Because no one should use Chrome.

Google Takeout: Anyone who uses Google services should look at this.

Enterprise pick of the week: Making Azure outage communications less terrible

Microsoft is trying.

Codename pick of the week: Project Osaka

A blast from the MS codename past. Project Osaka, aka CollabDB, was supposed to be a list-sharing app for O365. MS killed it several years ago, but elements of it remain in the new M365 Lists app.

Beer pick of the week: Westbrook Lemon Meringue Pie

In my ongoing series of beers made to taste like desserts, I offer you Lemon Meringue Pie. Lemon Meringue Pie is a sour from the excellent Westbrook Brewing. It does include vanilla, lemon, milk sugar, graham crackers and cinnamon and clocks in at a modest 4 percent. You can have your pie and drink it, too!

    Here's my question re: replacing Sonos. Replace it with what? My primary reason for having Sonos is that I can put good quality surround speakers and a woofer where I want without having to run audio cables half way around the room.

    What other system allows that with similar sound quality? It definitely ain't some chromecast thing.

    Note for Leo: Sonos DOES support Primephonic. Just add it as a "service" in the Sonos controller app.
