Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Watch our Microsoft Ignite recap with Stephen Rose

The Microsoft Ignite Fall 2021 recap from Inside Microsoft Teams is now available on YouTube.

App of the week #1: Firefox Relay

This is an excellent platform-independent service everyone should consider. I wish I had this years ago.

App pick of the week #2: 1Password

1Password 8 is now available on Windows. Maybe it’s time to switch.

Enterprise pick of the week: Big Microsoft cloud reorg today

Here’s who’s in and what you need to know. Jason Zander is getting more power. And ScottGu has a zillion direct reports.

Enterprise pick No. 2 of the week: Microsoft Managed Desktop Plan 1

Remember the white-glove MMD service? There’s now a less fancy and less pricey version of this called MMD Plan 1. (The former MMD service is now Plan 2. Because, Microsoft.) With Plan 1, Microsoft manages your Windows Updating process, your Office apps and provides customers with insights they have from running the Microsoft Cloud. Their tag line is Plan 1 can help accelerate users’ moves to Win 11 “with minimum time, effort and cost.” More information on TechCommunity site from Ignite. You can request to be in the preview for Plan 1 now.

Beer pick of the week: Founders KBS Espresso

Founders KBS is a classic. This version, already brewed with some coffee, is aged on espresso beans after coming out of bourbon barrels. It’s double the coffee and 12%. BOOM!

    I think Microsoft has to monetize Windows in other ways since $200 for 8 years of service isn't enough to cover what it costs them to make and maintain Windows. No one wants to pay much for software these days. Apps seem to have gone one of two ways. They go the advertising way or they go the subscription route.

    Only a Windows user could keep an Android phone that has issues with charging, app stability, screen et fingerprint reader.

    If the iPhone would have any of that You, Paul, would make a shit show of it and talk of it for years.

    Don't accept mediocre products sold as flagships. If you do Google will continue to make them half baked.

    I'm considering reinstalling Windows 10 instead of 11 for the stability, I'm using my pc only for gaming (Ryzen 7 3700, TX 1660) so only the graphic driver is important and it will be updated for Windows 10 until 2025 I guess ...
