Enterprise pick of the week: The Empire strikes back (over SAP)

There’s been noise lately about whether SAP is going to continue to say its preferred cloud is Azure (or if it will default to customer choice). Today, Microsoft struck back with a blog post of its own on the matter, proclaiming SAP is all in on Azure.

Codename pick of the week: Fire Steel

Fire Steel is an internal Microsoft tool related to Windows 11 development. Win Central’s Zac Bowden said Fire Stell is what MS is using to build “Chery Hill” (experience packages for Win11) for Sun Valley.

Beer pick of the week: Transmitter T1 Triple

Belgian triples are excellent. I hadn’t had one for a while but this past weekend had an excellent one from Transmitter, a NYC brewery. 9.1%, lots of Belgian yeast, stone fruit flavor.

    Ya know, I might just pick up that Samsung/Qualcomm laptop just to fool around with WOA

    Apple/Safari to Leo's point broke extensions badly in the name of security. If this becomes the universal way across all of these browsers its not going to be good. Google already tried to take out ad blockers in the name of security (what a joke) and I hope this effort does not lead to that.

    I remain of the opinion the reference to "...we will create more opportunity for every Windows developer today and welcome every creator" suggests Windows + some kind of overlay - a 'digital twin' if you will. And that's why there's a Picasso kind of looking graphic in the teaser.

    Yeah if you could talk about the Dreamcast more that would be awesome.
