Tips and picks

Tip of the week: It’s a great time to buy a Surface

Surface Book and Surface Pro 4 are on Crazy Eddie Sales right now. I wonder why? (Also this.)

Plus: Games with Gold, of course.

App pick of the week: Outlook Mobile for Android and iOS

I’ve recommended this before, but this app is as versatile as Outlook is on the PC, and add-ins are available now on iOS (Android soon).

Enterprise pick of the week: Use Windows Server and SQL Server on Google Cloud

Windows Enterprise devs now have options on the Google Cloud Platform (not just Azure and AWS)

Codename pick of the week: Project Rome

Project Rome, Microsoft’s version of Apple’s Handoff technology, is the pick. The reason it’s today’s pick: The Android SDK for Rome became available as of today. Remember: Rome was not built in a day.

Beer pick of the week: Radeberger Pilsner

It’s a pilsner. It’s from Germany. I’m not a pilsner fan, personally. But if you’re wanting to drink a pilsner and can find this one, you could do way way worse.

Audible pick of the week: Tell No One

Tell No One by Harlan Coben, narrated by: Ed Sala – Tell No One is an irresistibly suspenseful thriller infused with nail-biting tension and packed with shocking plot twists. It has been eight years since Dr. David Beck’s wife, Elizabeth, was murdered by a serial killer. When Beck receives a message containing a phrase only Elizabeth should know, he is tormented to tears. Either someone is playing a sick joke, or the wife he’s never stopped loving is still alive. He’s been warned to tell no one, and as the desperation of his search for the truth intensifies, he heads straight toward a deadly secret.
