Tip of the week: Unlock your phone, reconsider your wireless carrier
In the US, we're mostly locked into two-year plans at big carriers. This might not be the best option. In fact, it is almost certainly not the best option. Travel internationally a lot? You have some good options there too.
Software pick of the week: ProShot for Windows Phone 8.x
I previously recommended this app, but it is temporarily free this week. So no more excuses!
Plus: Have we mentioned that the original third-party Untappd app for Windows Phone is back? It's a good one. Tapped for Windows Phone. Thanks to Joel Partridge for the tip!

A tidbit on what's next for BizTalk, Microsoft's integration server and services
Name pick of the week: TechEd's successor to get a new name
