Tip of the week #2: Choose which version of OneNote to launch with Surface Pro 3's Pen
When Microsoft first launched Surface Pro 3, it touted some interesting integration features between Surface Pen and the Modern version of OneNote.

With Surface Pro 3 now arriving in stores, the firm has come through on that promise, and you can now choose between OneNote Modern and OneNote for desktop. Here's how.
Software pick of the week: Vivino Wine Scanner for Windows Phone 8/8.1
Vivino Wine Scanner is sort of like Untappd, but for wine. More important: It does a decent job of scanning wine bottle labels and finding the exact wine you're drinking.
Enterprise pick of the week: Office 365 for business gets a roadmap
And a dogfooding program, as promised. It's a start toward more transparency
Bonus pick: Windows Phone 8.1 implementation guides for business users available for free download
Rumor smash: No, Virginia, there is no Update 3 for Windows 8.1
There is not going to be a third update to Windows 8.1. No matter who says it and what you read, not happening. Update 2 is August (and quite small). Then expect test build of Threshold, followed by Theshold in spring 2015
