Faith, Tech, and Space (Episode 8)

Last episode we recorded in our reconfigured podcast studio. Now we are live streaming our recording session via YouTube. Now you can see my face, hands, and eyes as I share faith, tech, and space. I have updates on my own faith formation, current tech headlines, and some space news in this episode. Much of what we discuss is impacted by the current lock downs and stay at home orders due to the COVID-19 coronavirus. Working From Home and Remote Working is the new norm and many of these changes are likely to become more permanent when we return to whatever normal is in the coming months. Some of the headlines we catch up on include the latest for Windows and Edge Insiders, talk about the transition of Office 365 to Microsoft 365 for personal and family use, and how companies are adapting to the current situation. We also discuss Microsoft’s decision to go virtual with all their in-person events until at least July 2021 and what impact COVID-19 is and is not having on launches and other space news including the first potential launch of astronauts from U.S. soil in May.

On the tech front, we will catch up with all the latest builds and other news when it comes to both the Windows and Edge Insiders programs. Under miscellaneous tech we talk about some more Xbox Series X news, BUILD going virtual and some work of mine from ITProToday about remote work and certifications. I added a COVID-19 coronavirus section to discuss this global situation – not from a medical perspective – but from a human being experience. Of course, how tech is impacting this will be part of the discussion as well. Finally, wrapping up with the latest in space related news with headlines from SpaceX, NASA, ULA, OneWeb and our orbiting astronauts on ISS. I will also share my spoiler free take on the first season of Star Trek: Picard.

Fix: Facebook Live Playing Your iPhone Video Sideways

During this period when the COVID-19 coronavirus is dictating social distancing to prevent community spread, one service that has being used more often is Facebook Live. It is a great way to stream updates to family and friends via your Facebook profile, plus it is directly integrated into the Facebook app on iOS and Android and just takes a few steps to get it all up and running. That is unless you need to broadcast your Facebook Live in landscape mode, but there is a remedy and I finally tracked it down.
