Welcome to Episode 133 – another information dense episode as our friend and fellow MVP Joost van Schaik describes the podcast.
Some really good gouge in the last few days concerning Surface Pro 3 after the Surface Team did a Reddit IAmA yesterday and more in depth info and reviews are hitting tech sites as well. Unfortunately, data breaches continue to dominate the headlines with eBay at the top of the list. Also, a registry hack to get Windows XP updates unofficially goes public and gets the reaction you should expect from Microsoft. I am genuinely concerned about the number of people who blatantly want to stay on a 13 year old operating system and the professionals who are recommending it.
The show Starts Up with an update on my Rocket Launches app for Windows Phone, a possible Windows Phone Store clean up in progress, the Camelopardalids Meteor Shower, a registry hack for updates on Windows XP, Redbox pulling kiosks, Sailor convicted of hacking on an aircraft carrier, Adobe and security, recycling your old electronics, Microsoft shuffling technical blogs, Windows 8.1 with Bing and a possible Surface branded Miracast dongle.
In the central part of the show you will find the typical news we keep an eye on each week with items relating to Microsoft, Windows, Windows Phone, Office, Security, Cloud, Hardware, Apps, Xbox and Social Media. In addition to those I also include a special section on the recently announced Surface Pro 3 and more about the un-announced Surface Mini.
Bringing the show to a close in the Shut Down segment I discuss an offer of training and employment for women from Code Fellows, Infobesity, Migrating from Windows XP, iPad Mini, Windows and Windows Phone app stats, NASA’s Global Selfie, pictures of old tech and an $85,000 hoverbike.
Until next time enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
