Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Never lose a file with OneDrive

With everyone working from home, one useful OneDrive feature is suddenly even more important

App pick of the week: Xbox Family Settings

This new mobile app can help you keep track of, and control, your kids’ game time.

Enterprise pick of the week: Dynamics 365 2020 Wave 2

October 1 is the day that the set of Wave 2 features for the Dynamics 365 and Power Platform set of products begins rolling out. Microsoft is holding an online event to discuss some of these from 9-11 am PT on Oct. 1.

Codename pick of the week: Luna

It’s an Amazon gaming service. But it’s also the codename for the Windows XP UI. Paul has a little story about this.

Beer pick of the week: Burial Beer Invocation on the River of Laments

Another Asheville pick in honor of Paul’s visit. This brewery makes a number of excellent styles, including a Doppelbock called Invocation on the River of Laments. “The finished product is full of dark fruit basket, pumpernickel, roasted pecan and saltine.”  7% and only 22 IBUs so not hoppy. Nice for Octoberfest fans.
