Windows 10 RS5 Build 171666 Delivers BUILD Features

This past week Microsoft has been hosting developers from around the world at their annual BUILD developer conference in downtown Seattle. The event had keynotes on Monday and Tuesday then a broad range of sessions on all three days. To cap off the three day event, Windows Insiders received a new build on Wednesday, Build 171666, that introduced some of the features announced during BUILD. We even get to start checking out the Cloud-Powered Clipboard a year after its initial demo at BUILD 2017.

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 236 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 236 of Observed Tech. After a brief hiatus for the long holiday weekend here in the US last week, I am back with plenty of news and follow up items. I discuss the Petya Ransomware outbreak and continue to ask the question of why don’t people update their systems? After WannaCrypt you would expect that those vulnerable systems would have been patched but that was not the case once again. The Windows Desktop Bridge is delivering two of my favorite desktop programs to the Windows Store. Irfanview is already available and soon Paint.net will join it according to its developer. Security is always an important subject and even more so these days, especially after the last two big ransomware attacks, so Microsoft is really ramping up the security profile for the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update and we talk about those features. We also learned this week that two major features, which were heavily marketed at Build 2017, are not going to make the Fall Creators Update feature list. The delay of Windows Timeline and the Cloud-Powered Clipboard is unfortunate but Microsoft needs to temper their tendency to over promise and under deliver.¬†Spread throughout the show are plenty of other tidbits across a wide range of tech subjects so be sure to listen all the way until the end. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 229 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 229 of Observed.Tech. This weeks show is a couple of days late because of my travel back from Build 2017 in Seattle and some recovery time but in this episode I walk through all the major announcements that impact Windows 10 and the new ecosystem Microsoft discussed last week. Before I dived into details from Build, I addressed an email I received from a listener last week after I talked about and subsequently removed the links to subscribe to the podcast in Zune. It helped me understand some still make tech choices that are different than my own which is OK as long as it does not compromise security of your OS ecosystem. That link is now back on this show page in the options below due to that email. I then spend most of the show talking about new features for the now officially dubbed Fall Creators Update (Redstone 3) such as OneDrive Files On-Demand, Timeline, Pick Up Where You Left Off, a new Cloud-powered Clipboard and Story Remix – the most popular demo from nearly five hours of keynotes. In addition I cover the new Fluent Design Language, what we have known as Project NEON until now, and how that is starting to appear in more first party apps on both Windows 10 desktop and mobile devices. Links to all of the related news are on the Show Notes page so make sure you go visit there and read through all the details I highlighted in this episode. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
