Welcome to Episode 227 of Observed.Tech.
We are just a few days away from Microsoft Education related event in New York City on Tuesday, it is being held/was held on 02 May, and I am preparing for my trip up for that so I start off with some comments about what I am expecting to see and hear.
Then we talk about Microsoft’s 3rd Quarter financial results that were released this past week including what is working and what is looking rough around the edges. I will tell you a secret – it is hardware that needs some attention.
Of course, there is plenty of Windows 10 news to talk about including new Redstone 2 and Feature 2 builds for PC and Mobile respectively. The PC build includes the return of My People which was intended for Redstone 2 but got left behind because it was not ready for release with the Creators Update.
Microsoft also provided guidance to Windows 10 Mobile users who are not officially supported with the Creators Update so they can stay on the final build, receive cumulative updates, and use the update. However, nothing changes about these handsets and users being unsupported so we will talk about what that means as well.
As always there are other bits scattered throughout the show including Acers new hardware lineup including a mixed reality headset, my first week with the Samsung Galaxy S8, a new fingerprint reader from Kensington, Facebook Workplace trying to compete for your team collaboration business, and changes to cumulative updates from Microsoft.
Enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
