    Tip of the week: Check out Windows 10X. You no longer need to have a Fast ring Windows Insider build to use the emulator. But there is one important requirement. App pick of the week: Call of Duty: Warzone. Call of Duty: Warzone is here! And it's free! Enterprise pick of the week: Cosmos DB gets a free tier! Microsoft adds a free tier (free as in forever) for its Cosmos DB NoSQL cloud database. Enterprise pick No. 2: About that major Azure US East outage. Is it still a cloud outage if almost no one complains publicly? Where is the outrage, cloud citizens? Beer pick of the week: O'Fallon Brewery Barrels Salted Pretzel. This amber was brewed with toasted malt and Himalayan salt giving you a toasted pretzel flavor. We got to have a sample of this during our beer tasting at WWT in Saint Louis. It was really tasty and really did taste like a pretzel. Only 5% ABV, too, so you can have more than one with your tofudog. https://untappd.com/b/o-fallon-brewery-barrels-salted-pretzel/2977506
