Welcome to Episode 85 and a slightly tweaked show format. The primary change I have made is to not include as many news items to mention and discuss. This should allow the show to be less of a rapid fire session and allow for more discussion on individual items and still stay within my goal of having the show around 45 minutes in length. I would love to hear your feedback on the change if you have a chance.
In this show we discuss an iconic founders photo recreation, 40 years since the first cell phone call and making sure you observe World Back Up day for your data. Then we jump into Facebook Home; Outlook.com getting the modern calendar update finally for the web experience; the reselling of MP3’s getting shot down; whether people really hate Windows 8 the most of any Windows OS; where to get a PC with Windows 7 on it; the inevitable Messenger/Skype merger approaching; Microsoft’s warns about Xbox points scam; Windows 8 Blue update and what it means to the future of Windows and Microsoft; Nokia Lumia 920 firmware update causing some connectivity issues; Microsoft Build 2013 in San Francisco sells out in three hours; getting your Google Calendar events in Windows 8; premium subscriptions for Microsoft Windows 8 games introduced to remove ads; Twitter gets it wrong at times; Outlook.com Insider program announced; Roku updating interface for many of their devices at no cost; Digg really wants to hear about how you use RSS feeds and Google Reader and I wrap up with the experience and simplicity of resetting the Windows 8 OS on a Microsoft Surface RT.
Enjoy the show and as always thanks for listening!
