Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 297 #OTP

A busy week begins with news about the end of support for Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 7 which is in December 2019 and January 2020 respectively. We had a new build in the Windows Insider program and it continues the trend over the last few builds of just tweaking the UI and putting some finishing touches on the next feature update for the OS. We have all kinds of other news related to Microsoft, apps, services, gaming, Office Insiders updates, and HoloLens 2. Be sure to stay tuned in from start to finish so you don’t miss any of the tidbits we discuss this week.

Once again this week we have a massive piece of news to discuss when it comes to Windows 10 and this time it shakes out fairly positive despite a handful of detractors about the news. Although there was no new Windows Insider builds for Fast Ring this past week, there was some Insider news so we will also discuss those items. However, the Microsoft Edge news dominates everything about Windows 10 this week. There are multiple app updates to cover on Windows 10 and Xbox One plus we have headlines from Amazon, Apple, Google, Qualcomm Snapdragon, and WordPress to share as well. Be sure to listen all the way through to catch everything. Thanks for listening.

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 289 #OTP

This week we kick off with the latest in the Windows Insider Program and I share some thoughts on the tweaks we are seeing and what it might mean for the direction of the 19H1 feature update. We are also another week without any updates about the re-release of the October 2018 Update and the blogosphere this week spent time commenting on the lack of communications from Microsoft on this updates release. Without improved communications from Redmond, regaining users trust is going to be challenge. Of course, we have app update news, a ton of Xbox related announcements after XO18 this week in Europe including several new additions to Xbox Game Pass, plus we talk about Samsung showing off their first Foldables phone and the updates Google is making to Android to support the new form factor. There are lots of other tidbits scattered throughout the show like any other episode so be sure to listen until the very end to catch everything.

We start off by talking about the latest build in the Windows 10 19H1 development branch and the stagnant status of the re-release process for the October 2018 Update. Currently that feature update is still being tested by Slow and Release Preview Ring Insiders. Another issue, this time about copying and pasting files from a compressed archive, now has to be fixed and likely tested as well. This was earnings week and Microsoft had a big one setting records for revenue along with big year over year gains in most areas across the company. This performance even lifted Microsoft up into position as the second most valuable company in the United States. Of course, we have app news, developer updates, security related items, and all kinds of other tidbits so be sure to listen all the way until the end of the show to catch everything.
