Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 315 #OTP

This week we delayed recording the show until after Microsoft’s big Xbox E3 Media Briefing was held yesterday afternoon. So this show has a lot of stuff related to those announcements from Los Angeles, That gets us caught up with the new game pass options for both console and PC, upcoming games, hardware, and streaming technology plus lots of other gaming related items such as project Scarlett and Project xCloud. Of course, I still catch you up on the latest for Windows Insiders and where we stand with the continued development of the 20H1 feature update for next year and the wait for the first bits of 19H2 for this fall. Scattered throughout the show I have some of the details about Apple’s WWDC 2019 announcements, browser updates, and a little low earth orbit news from NASA.

Of course, the show is littered with headlines around app updates, services, security, social media, Xbox, gaming and a promise for a new privacy focus from Facebook.

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 268 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 268 of Observed Tech. This is a Sunday evening episode of the show because I held off on recording until after Microsoft’s Big Xbox E3 Briefing that was held this afternoon from California on the eve of E3. It was a busy 90 minutes with 52 games shown including multiple world premiere’s and console based exclusives. We even heard about machine learning, artificial intelligence, and the cloud and how all of those technologies are improving the Microsoft gaming experience. However, this show is not all fun and games. We also talk about the latest Redstone 5 builds for Windows 10, reaction to the companies GitHub acquisition, and all the new hardware that was announced at COMPUTEX this past week. Enjoy the show and thanks 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.
