Welcome to Episode 205 of Observed.Tech!
Today’s show went for almost an hour so there is a lot to discuss as it has been a busy week around Microsoft and tech in general.
I start off by spending some time talking about the latest concerns around Windows 10 regarding privacy and security then I bring everyone up to date on the release of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update for mobile devices. We are also now fully into the development of Redstone 2, the next major release of Windows 10 expected in 2017, with the release of Build 14905 this week for PCs and mobile devices.
Windows as a Service (WaaS) with its cumulative updates is now rubbing off on Windows 7 and 8.1 as those systems will now start getting updates rolled into a single package. This is causing some concerns right now but in the long run should improve the update experience on these versions of Windows. It kicks off in October of this year.
In the Xbox world we talk about the companies acquisition of livestreaming service Beam, the win in July for console sales versus Sony and Game Previews coming to Windows 10 this fall.
As always, you can expect plenty of other tidbits throughout the episode including Microsoft once again changing their support policy for Intel’s 6th Gen Skylake chipset, online safety resources, Windows 10 getting some security respect from an unexpected group and unboxing the Nexdock device for your small form factor PCs.
Enjoy the show and thanks for listening!
