Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 274 #OTP

This week I kick off the show by trying to explain my screaming lobster analogy from last week’s episode about the changes in Windows 10 over the last three years. Hopefully, I helped and did not further muddy up the waters! Then we had a quick rundown of Windows Insider and pre-release news of the past week including no client side fast ring build. That means the likelihood is high that we will see an update this week with a long list of updates since it will have been two weeks since Build 17713 was released to testers. Big ticket item this week was Microsoft’s 4th Quarter FY-18 earnings that were announced on Thursday. Suffice it to say the demise of Microsoft is huge fake news! Of course we have plenty of other news for you so make sure you listen all the way to the end so you can catch everything.

Of course there is a lot of other items discussed in the show including the direction Microsoft is taking Windows 10 in, a Microsoft Band bug, and some expectations for BUILD next week. As always there are of course plenty of other news items that get covered in this episode so come on in and take part in the discussion. Until next time enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
