Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 288 #OTP

Once again we are talking about the still to happen re-release of the October 2018 Update. I shared my thoughts on the one thing that could make things much clearer for everyone involved. I also share where we are at with current releases in the Windows Insider Program including potentially new code names for future feature updates after the release of Windows 10 19H1 next year. We then catch up on the normal collection of progress and new features/capabilities for several apps from the Microsoft Store and then talk about the looming end of life for Windows 7 and a new countdown timer that has appeared on the web. We also discuss the big Apple hardware announcements this past week along with Xbox related gaming news, some Spotify growth and benefits information, and changes to Flickr free accounts. There are other tidbits sprinkled throughout the show, so be sure to listen all the way until the end to catch everything!

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 133 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 133 – another information dense episode as our friend and fellow MVP Joost van Schaik describes the podcast. Some really good gouge in the last few days concerning Surface Pro 3 after the Surface Team did a Reddit IAmA yesterday and more in depth info and reviews are hitting tech sites as well. Unfortunately, data breaches continue to dominate the headlines with eBay at the top of the list. Also, a registry hack to get Windows XP updates unofficially goes public and gets the reaction you should expect from Microsoft. I am genuinely concerned about the number of people who blatantly want to stay on a 13 year old operating system and the professionals who are recommending it. The show Starts Up with an update on my Rocket Launches app for Windows Phone, a possible Windows Phone Store clean up in progress, the Camelopardalids Meteor Shower, a registry hack for updates on Windows XP, Redbox pulling kiosks, Sailor convicted of hacking on an aircraft carrier, Adobe and security, recycling your old electronics, Microsoft shuffling technical blogs, Windows 8.1 with Bing and a possible Surface branded Miracast dongle. In the central part of the show you will find the typical news we keep an eye on each week with items relating to Microsoft, Windows, Windows Phone, Office, Security, Cloud, Hardware, Apps, Xbox and Social Media. In addition to those I also include a special section on the recently announced Surface Pro 3 and more about the un-announced Surface Mini. Bringing the show to a close in the Shut Down segment I discuss an offer of training and employment for women from Code Fellows, Infobesity, Migrating from Windows XP, iPad Mini, Windows and Windows Phone app stats, NASA’s Global Selfie, pictures of old tech and an $85,000 hoverbike. Until next time enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
