Tips and picks
Tip of the week: Get to Sound schemes as quickly as possible
In The Mainstream Press Doesn’t Understand Microsoft or Windows (Premium), I write about a New York Times article with fluffy advice for Windows users. Here’s the right information.
App pick of the week: iA Writer
If you’re interested in Markdown, this is a good albeit not-free option, especially if you’re into minimalism. There’s a 14-day free trial … $29.99 if you go for it.
Enterprise pick of the week: Windows 11 onboarding and deployment kits
Microsoft is adding new tools to try to get more business customers on Windows 11. There’s a new Windows 11 onboarding kit, plus a Windows 11 and Office 365 deployment lab kit, both aimed at IT pros.
Enterprise pick No. 2 of the week: Office 2016 and 2019 users: Mark your calendars
As of October 2023, Office 2016 and 2019 users won’t be able to connect anymore to Microsoft 365/Office 365 backend services. This is happening before either of these products hits official end of support. Mark your calendars and be ready — it’s just a little over a year away.
Beer pick of the week: Hill Farmstead Charlie
One of the most famous craft breweries in the U.S., Hill Farmstead, has a farmhouse beer that is only 1.7%. It’s still full of flavor. Nice and bright, lemony and named after the brewery’s golden retriever Charlie.
