Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 245 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 245 of Observed Tech. We have survived Hurricane Irma so this is our Post Hurricane Irma episode of the show! We had some roof damage from the crazy winds we experienced during the storm but the insurance company is already moving forward to help us with the repairs. So many residents of Florida and the islands are in much worse shape so please keep them in your thoughts and prayers. If you can help by donating of your time, talent, or treasure please consider doing that for the victims of Irma and Harvey. Of course, all of us here in Florida are also keeping a close eye on another storm that is making its way across the Atlantic right now in this general direction. However, for now we get to talk about the latest builds for Windows 10 on PC and Mobile plus a bunch of Microsoft related headlines including updated apps, Microsoft Ignite still happening in Central Florida beginning on the 25th of September, and the usage numbers around the Microsoft Edge browser. Of course, there is other news relating to apps and services from Microsoft for Windows 10 and plenty of other tidbits across a wide range of tech subjects throughout the show so be sure to listen all the way until the end. Thanks again for all of your expressions of concern on social media for us during Hurricane Irma – it was all very much appreciated. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

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!
