Welcome to Episode 34 of the Observed Tech PODCAST. This is our first green episode as no trees were killed in the production of this show because we are now using a new Acer Iconia Tab W500 as our notes and reference device.

In this show we discuss free Skype over the holidays; Google+ improvements; malware making like the police; laptop laziness; embedding tweets; Microsoft and multi-platform releases; new Hotmail features; more Windows Phone 7 accolades; picture passwords in Windows 8; Bing making progress; some smart phones not worth stealing; stop using IE6 already; Kindle Fire selling – well like fire; e-book pricing economics; amateur treasure hunter finds the Viking mother lode; Windows XP on a third of computers out there; lots of DroidRage wanting Windows Phone handsets; rogue security software victims getting refunds; protecting your digital identity in Windows 8; free Xbox Live game Breeze; FCC tells commercials to turn it down; Soluto offers web based PC support solution for everyday users; Microsoft Co-Founder heading to space; teens and the Internet – it is not pretty nor safe sometimes; TwitVid revamped; computer glitch cancels out 57 million dollar jackpot and a Windows Phone SMS attack discovered.
