Faith, Tech, and Space (Episode 10)

Welcome to Episode 10 of the Faith, Tech, and Space PODCAST. Scheduling recordings are still a challenge but one we will get figured out. I lead off with the latest around my formation and the completion of year number one and I share where we are at in the church calendar. On the tech side we kick off with the latest Windows and Edge Insiders news including the latest releases. The big news on this front is the release of the Windows 10 May 2020 Update and the roll out for new Edge (Stable Channel). Then I talk about BUILD 2020, software installs, channel updates for Microsoft 365, Xbox gaming news, and new Surface hardware reviews. In space we have launches all over the place including the SpaceX Demo 2 mission with two American astronauts onboard. I close the show with some thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement and how I am choosing to learn and be a better ally.

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 293 #OTP

We kick this show off by talking about what was thought to be a privacy violation with Windows 10 and turned out to be inconsistent naming of data which is collected. Next up we touch base on the latest information coming out of Redmond around a potential Microsoft 365 Consumer based subscription and how that might be configured/set-up. On the Windows Insider front, we had a new build this week that continues Microsoft’s efforts to make the UI cleaner and more efficient for end users. Including among the changes is some A/B testing of a split between Search and Cortana on the Taskbar plus a new information bar header in Windows Settings. Of course, the show is full of other information, stories, and other tidbits so be sure to listen all the way until the end.

Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 202 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 202 of Observed.Tech! I can confirm there are no Pokémon’s in this show! What is in this show is a summary of Dona Sarkar’s appearance on Windows Weekly from Microsoft’s Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto and she talked about some interesting tidbits for Windows Insiders. I also give you a run down of the major announcements that came out of the conference that cover areas like Microsoft Azure, Office 365, Windows 10 and Surface Hardware. Microsoft’s main message to partners was transformation of their businesses to help others make the move to a digital world. Next up is Windows 10 and the progress being made to deliver the Anniversary Update in just a little more than two weeks from now. Insiders have had three builds for PCs and Mobile devices in the last week and there are more to come. Alongside the latest testing builds we also gained access to a new extension from Amazon for Microsoft Edge plus a long awaited firmware update for Lumia 950/950 XL that adds back a very popular feature.. This past week was also Patch Tuesday so we talk about the latest Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Current Branch and some hardware driver updates. As always, you can expect plenty of other tidbits throughout the episode including Skype for Linux, photo back ups with different services, magnets and 2-in-1 devices, the new Outlook.com and some Xbox news including how to get the Kinect Adapter for your Xbox One S. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening!
