Tips and picks

Tip of the week: How to use Snap Groups in Windows 11

Snap Groups are another new Snap-based multitasking feature in Windows 11.

App pick of the week: Firefox 90

This one is a minor update, but it adds some useful improvements.

Plus: The new Google Drive desktop client is much more efficient

Plus: The next version of DeskScapes is now on Steam in early access for $2.99

Enterprise pick of the week: Microsoft cloud for sustainability

Another week, another new cloud bundle. This one – Cloud for Sustainability —  is more horizontal than vertical.

Enterprise pick no. 2 of the week: Teams and Dynamics 365 get even more chummy

Microsoft Teams customers will now receive access to view and edit Microsoft Dynamics 365 data in Teams at no extra cost, whether or not they have a Dynamics 365 license. Another way for MS to try to up its Dynamics user numbers – by integrating it with yet more products and services.

Drink pick of the week: Switchel

Non-alcoholic and refreshing, switchel is a drink dating back hundreds of years. The version I’ve been making has honey, ginger, and lemon. I top it with seltzer. It probably also would be fantastic with a splash of vodka. Just sayin’

    HA! it took Microsoft to make the IPAD a proper computer.

    And If I want to run linux as my host OS... I still have great access to Windows Apps without the headache of IOMMU.

    except..... its not for consumers. . .bummer. I guess Microsoft is trying to protect its OEM Hardware partners.

    Also this would have been handy to have in my last project. I needed access to a program that over ran the capabilities of my ultrabook. So I had to upgrade my machine for a temporary but critical use case. I think this is an exciting product.

    At $20/mo, a machine would cost just $1,200 over five years. Sure, you still need a device to run this on locally, but it can be a cheaper device, and business continuity, disaster recovery, more control over the endpoint and where documents are kept are huge advantages.
