Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Lose yourself in a tech podcast

I mostly listen to non-tech podcasts. But a few tech podcasts have helped me get through the pandemic too.

App pick of the year: Affinity Photo

I picked up Affinity Photo for half price back in June, but even at $50, it’s a great alternative to Adobe Photoshop Elements, let alone full-blown PS CC. I wish they made a video editor too.

Enterprise pick of the week: Using Microsoft 365 Defender to protect against Solorigate

A potentially useful resource document for IT pros concerned about Solorigate

Enterprise pick of the week No. 2: Azure free account users get 5 more services

Newly added free amounts of Service Bus, VPN Gateway, Load Balancer, Container Registry, Archive Storage, as well as increased free amounts of Cosmos DB are now available for eligible Azure free account users for the first 12 months.

Beer pick of the week: Evil Twin Happy New Beer

Just in time for New Year’s, here’s Evil Twin’s Russian Imperial Stout, called Happy New Beer 2021.
