Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 213 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 213 of Observed.Tech!

Security kicks off this weeks show with the second major breach revealed by Yahoo! in the last 12 months or so and this one happened nearly three years ago! Is it time to dump your Yahoo! account? It is for me – after Fantasy Football playoffs are over of course.

I then catch you up on the latest builds from the Windows 10 Redstone 2 development branch, aka the Creators Update, and talk about some of the new features that are going to be in that major Feature Update when it arrives next March.

Next up is news about the Surface hardware line and the success it has experienced recently including the new Surface Studio and the apparently very popular Surface Hub including a new try-and-buy program for potential Surface Hub customers.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning continue to be big topics in tech and Microsoft shared a lot of news at their AI Conference in San Francisco this week. New bots were made available for the Skype Preview Program including Expedia, UPS, and StubHub. Microsoft Translator also got a big update that allows you to use it on landline and mobile devices plus translate group conversations in real time.

I also break down some of the other announcements that came out of several sessions at WinHEC 2017 including new about Cortana, gaming on Windows 10 devices, and of course the mixed reality/Windows 10 on ARM news.

There are plenty of other tidbits throughout the show including app tours for new updates in the latest Windows 10 Insider Fast Ring build, my unboxing and hands on of the Nuvision W610L Windows 10 tablet, and some Xbox tidbits as well.

Enjoy the show and thanks for listening!
