Tips and picks

Tip of the week: US carriers are finally waking up to international travel

Spurred by T-Mobile and Project Fi, the biggest US carriers finally offer semi-affordable international plans (voice, text, data). Make sure you know about them.

Another tip: Learn more about the Creators Update. It’s bigger than you may imagine.

AppRaisin mobile app pick of the week: Cubway

This interesting, abstract games gets great reviews and is available on Windows 10 PCs and phones. And on Android, iOS and Steam (if you’re Windows Store-averse).

Enterprise pick of the week: Windows 10 subscriptions now available for free through CSPs

If you’re looking to buy a Windows 10 E3 or E5 license through a MS cloud partner, you may be able to get it for free.

More enterprise picks (all Outlook-related this week):

Beer pick of the week: Troegs Nugget Nectar

“It’s impossible to forget your first squeeze.” This beer is actually one of the beers that turned me into a craft beer fan.  It’s a hybrid style (hoppy amber). And starting tomorrow, the 2017 version is going to start becoming widely available.
