Leo, Mary Jo, and Paul discuss Windows 11 heading to the Beta channel, the Windows 365 launch, Microsoft’s vaccination requirements, and more.
Tips and picks
Tip of the week: Get a Halo theme in Waze
The good news? Your car can be a Warthog and Ghost. The bad? It’s temporary.
App pick of the week: Mozilla Firefox
Enterprise pick of the week: Dynamics 365 Field Service on prem is going away
Codename pick of the week: Project Arno
Last year, Microsoft unveiled Azure for Operators, its infrastructure and strategy for making Azure a “telco-grade cloud” in order to attract mobile operators as customers (and partners). But Azure for Operators had its roots in a Microsoft Research Project dating back to 2017 that was known as “Project Arno.”
Beer pick of the week: June Shine Blood Orange Mint
This is not a beer: It’s a “hard” kombucha. (I think technically all kombuchas are hard because they contain a least a trace of alcohol.) A San Diego brewer named June Shine makes some really nice ones, including this summery blood orange-mint one. It’s 6%, no hops, and available all over the U.S. in cans. (Thanks to Mikah for the suggestion!)
