Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Time to think about email consolidation again

There are two ways to consolidate multiple email accounts. Neither is perfect.

App pick of the week: Game streaming

Cloud-based game streaming has exploded this year. There’s an app for that.

  • Xbox Game Streaming: Not on PC yet, but via the Xbox app on Android
  • Amazon Luna – web client, but invite-only right now
  • GeForce Now – native client on Windows
  • Google Stadia – web client

Enterprise pick of the week:  Take the Power Platform plunge

If you still haven’t checked out Microsoft’s Power Platform (but keep meaning to), you’re in luck. There’s now a new and free Udacity course that’s designed as an intro to Power Platform.

Codename pick of the week: Project Burgundy

Keeping with the theme of bad blood between Microsoft and Salesforce, here’s a codename blast from the past. Project Burgundy. Burgundy was the name Salesforce gave its effort to buy LinkedIn. And we all know how that went…. I guess it was time for Benioff to drink some nice red wine to console himself.

Beer pick of the week: KCBC Penguins Take Manhattan

It’s been a while since I did an IPA pick. And after Thanksgiving, maybe it’s time for a somewhat lighter one. How about a 4.9% session with Citra, Cashmere and Centennial hops (to still give it that hoppy goodness). Bright lights, big city and intergalactic penguins, say the KCBC brewers. Who could ask for anything more??
