Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 225 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 225 of Observed.Tech.

Of course this show has some more Windows 10 goodness as the Creators Update has now been officially released along with a bevy of information from Microsoft on the upgrade. I have info about the overall update and some specifics about Microsoft Edge’s continued maturation.

However, we start the show off talking about some recent release of several exploits that were released by a hacking group. The good news upfront is that after reports that Windows was very vulnerable, it turns out most currently supported systems are patched already against these issues or are not susceptible to them.

We then talk about some new features that have recently come to Windows 10 over on Xbox One and also the discovery of a modern version of a very handy system tool for Windows.

We also have a huge amount of news about the future of Windows 10 Mobile and what devices will be officially supported for the Creators Update on mobile, which will be released on the 25th of April, and the Windows Insider Program. That list of supported hardware only has 13 devices listed and that is causing a lot of consternation for Windows 10 Mobile users.

I also have tidbits about Steve Ballmer and his reflective perception of Microsoft’s mobile moves, commercials triggering your digital assistants, ad blockers and the way some companies are approaching them, and Apple’s drop on the Best & Worsts Laptop Brands of 2017.

Enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
