Leo, Mary Jo, and Paul discuss the death of Windows 10X, passwords, new PC hardware, Microsoft 365, Linux, Xbox, and much more.
Tips and picks
Tip of the week: Jump on the “no passwords” train
Microsoft already lets its customers sign in everywhere without ever typing a password. Here’s how to do so.
Bonus tip: Get a Surface Duo from BuyDig for just $700. But seriously, don’t.
App pick of the week: Call of Duty Mobile
I’m not sure what took me so long, but I finally tried Call of Duty Mobile on an iPad Air with an Xbox Wireless Controller. And. Oh. My. God.
Enterprise pick of the week: Bye, bye Azure Blockchain
Azure Blockchain as a Service is going to be discontinued in September. If a blockchain falls in the forest and no one hears it, did it really exist?
Codename pick of the week: Santorini
Windows Lite was the original codename for 10X. But then many of us began calling it Santorini. I *think* Santorini technically may have been the codename for the shell for 10X on top of WCOS.
Beer pick of the week: Deciduous Lollipop Forest
Deciduous Brewing in Newmarket, N.H., makes a lot of great styles of beer. They have a line called Lollipop Forest that are fruited sours with milk sugar (so they’re not TOO sour). I had the Blueberry, Blackberry, Guava, Plum version recently and it was really good. Tart but fruity. Not too high in ABV. Still tastes like a (sour) beer.
