Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 206 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 206 of Observed.Tech! I start things off on this show by talking about the state of the Windows mobile market and that it is time for a reality check and acceptance of where the platform is these days. Bottom line is that the mobile battle has been won by Android closely followed by iOS. Next up is the Windows 10 Anniversary Update including what is being called #WebCamGate and the continued steady roll out to current Windows 10 users. I also share my latest collection of Quick Tips and an app tour of the new Amazon app for desktop and mobile devices. Then in hardware I share about some of the latest happenings with Surface including an update on #Batterygate and some new coverage of the design studios for Surface that hit publications this past week. Sony and its PlayStation 4 is making headlines as well for planning to deliver a feature Xbox One already has in its console. As always, you can expect plenty of other tidbits throughout the episode including an Evernote to OneNote Converter for Mac users, a new visual bookmarking tool from Microsoft, updates to Microsoft’s Arrow Launcher for Android, unlimited data and data plan changes from wireless carriers, Google’s plans to update Android more often and an acquisition by Pinterest. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening!

Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 201 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 201 of Observed.Tech! As we begin our next century of shows this one gets started reviewing some of the background about the bidding war that happened between Microsoft, Salesforce and Google for LinkedIn which Microsoft ultimately won. They even brought in the big kahuna, in the form of Microsoft founder Bill Gates, to help move things along to ultimately close the deal. Next I discuss how things will change for upgrades to Windows 10 after the free upgrade deal ends on 29 July 2016 plus more about the latest features arriving in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update which arrives on 02 August. Of course, there are also items to mention like the new and free Skype Meetings service, lots of great tutorials for developers to build apps that take advantage of new features in Windows 10, upcoming hardware that is focused on Windows 10 including the likely Surface branded All In One device. I run down some new Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps for Windows 10 and also mention a few that have decided to leave the platform including CNN and their ancient Windows Phone 8.1 app that still labels Microsoft’s cloud storage as SkyDrive. There are a couple of tips for you on how to reset individual Windows Store apps and also how you can migrate your Evernote data into OneNote fast and easy to avoid their new limitations for free accounts. As always, you can expect plenty of other tidbits throughout the episode including Xbox hardware and software news, EA Access updates, a major malware attack on Android devices, a massive recall of hover boards that do not really hover plus a big anti-malware/virus company acquisition/merger. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening!
