Tip of the week: Students can get Windows 8 Pro upgrade for $70
That's a savings of $130. But if you act quickly--like today--anyone can get the Upgrade for just $40. And no, you do not have to install it today.
Software pick of the week: The Gunstringer for Windows 8/RT
The Gunstringer is a surprisingly fun Temple Run-type game for Windows 8 and Windows RT. And it's only $1.49.
Enterprise pick of the week: TFS, VS get Git
Git: Not just for Linux lovers these days. MS is giddy over Git, too.
Codename pick of the week: YBox
A blast from the codename past. 
Beer pick of the week: Grimm Brothers Little Red Riding Cap
