Tips and picks

App pick of the week: Google Photos

Google will no longer offer unlimited free storage of photos. Good. It’s still the best photo service out there and storage is cheap.

App pick of the week #2: Halo it up

With Halo 4 remastered on PC and Halo: MCC optimized for Series X|S, it’s time to revisit some old friends.

Enterprise pick of the week: Dataflex, Project Oakdale and now, Dataverse

Whatever you call CDS these days, it’s now generally available in Teams. As are Power Platform tools and third-party apps for Teams meetings.

Codename pick of the week: Sabre

Sabre looks like it might be the codename for the Pluton processor. (Thanks Walking Cat)

And we now know what CBL stands for in CBL-Mariner Linux! Sadly, it’s not Canadian Bacon Linux

Beer pick of the week: Torch and Crown King Elizabeth Barleywine

Barleywine in a can? Yes, you can. King Elizabeth is from Torch and Crown, Manhattan, NY’s only brewery – which just opened for drinking and eating on premises recently. (They’ve also been a reliable delivery supplier since earlier this year.) King Elizabeth seems to be their brewery cat in their Bronx.
