Welcome to Episode 29 of the Observed Tech PODCAST.

We are coming at you one day later than normal because of the NAS Jacksonville Airshow which I worked for three days and then I had jury duty yesterday.  After catching up I just could not get the show recorded so you have it now for your listening pleasure.

I started the show off talking about today being Patch Tuesday for your Windows based clients and server systems.  So after you fire up Windows Update you can continue to listen to the show where we talk about Andy Rooney’s death; pinning the Control Panel icon to your taskbar for quick access in Windows 8; possibility of Windows 8 becoming a base OS for Microsoft’s consumer products; 2005 YU55 Asteroid passed by Earth while recording the show; Google+ Pages launch; Amazon Prime users borrowing Kindle books now; Netflix on the new Nook Color; watching for Confirm Your Account scams; DuQu Security Advisory and workaround solution and fix; Spotify for Windows Phone 7 Hands on; relaxed hardware requirements for Windows Phone 7 devices; ChevronWP7 Unlock Tool for Windows Phone 7; AP Guidelines for Journalists and RT’s; Twitter features for Top News, Top People and Activity tabs; Commodore 64 Revived by Intel; share your printer on the Internet; hard drive prices going up due to flooding in Thailand; United and Continental adding Wi-Fi to flights next year; speed of USB 3.0 compared to USB 2.0; Wi-Fi Do’s and Don’ts; Samsung Focus S review; tips for creating great content; and our first appearance in the PC Pitstop newsletter.

As usual we wrap up with a look at the past week on WindowsObserver.com
