Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 280 #OTP

It is official! The Windows 10 Redstone 5 feature update, the sixth feature update for the operating system, will be called the October 2018 Update. This is right in track with the new naming scheme they began tis past Spring with the April 2018 Update for Redstone 4. We had a good week with build releases for Redstone 5 Fast Ring, The Windows 10 RS5 SDK and Windows Server 2018 Insider Preview however, no Skip Ahead releases for Windows 10 19H1 – the seventh feature update that is expected in the March/April 2019 timeframe. We have hardware news from IFA 2018 in Europe along with several app updates, the confirmation of Xbox All Access and a big change to home based Office 365 subscriptions. Of course, there are all kinds of tidbits sprinkled throughout the show so be sure you listen all the way until the end. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 197 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 197 of Observed Tech. As we approach our 200th episode of Observed Tech I share some plans to mark the milestone including a very cool domain name for the show and plans for a new show portal. Among some of the things covered in this episode I discuss leadership changes at the top of the Windows Insider Program, a move by users to ask the EFF to pursue an investigation into Windows 10, the return of Bank of America to the Windows platform and what you can do if there is not an app available on Windows 10 Mobile for certain services. I then touch on Xbox and next week’s E3 events out in Los Angeles and what we can expect from Microsoft as the huge entertainment show kicks off with the companies big press conference on Monday. COMPUTEX 2016 has wrapped but it saw a huge push in the area of PCs of all types including high end devices for gaming/virtual reality along with news relating to Windows 10 and Windows Holographic. You can watch the entire keynote online now and there is a link over on the show notes page. There is also plenty of Windows 10 news and where things are moving as we get in the window leading up to the release of the Anniversary Update in July. I also share my thoughts on how builds might pan out over the next few weeks based on the past preparations for major Windows 10 releases last November and July. As always, you can expect plenty of other tidbits throughout the episode. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
