Invoke: Microsoft's awaited answer to the Echo. Why is MS holding back the promised public preview of the Cortana Skills Kit? Meanwhile, Amazon's now doing a voice powered Echo camera (for fashionistas, to start). Creepy or cool? Microsoft to roll out new Windows 10, Office feature releases twice annually. Creators Update at two weeks: Microsoft says "millions" have upgraded. Anecdotally, there are no horror stories to speak of. CloudBook specs leak ahead of Microsoft's EDU event. A Windows 10 watch! Microsoft earnings tomorrow: what to expect.

  • App pick of the week: Movies & TV
  • Enterprise pick of the week: Linkedin and Dynamics 365 – the integration begins.
  • Codename pick of the week: Are you hungry? Office team has you covered.
  • Beek Pick Of The Week: Upland Brewing Irdescent
