Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 301 #OTP

After all the fun and commentary around Episode 300 last week, we get started with the next 300 shows this week and there is plenty to talk about. There are big changes happening in the Windows Insiders program as it relates to changes in Microsoft’s approach to developing updates for Windows 10. I dive into the details and offer my observations on where things might be going over the next several months. Of course, we have plenty of other news throughout the show such as the Samsung OneNote UI and Android 9 Pie arriving on T-Mobile’s Galaxy S9/S9+, Amazon acquiring eero who builds a very popular Wi-Fi wire mesh system, and Chrome OS might be getting virtual desktops soon. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 290 #OTP

A very rare Friday edition of the show as I start some downtime but so much happened this past week that I needed to get behind the mike and talk about it with you all. Leading things off was my unexpected and still unexplained suspension from Twitter this past Tuesday. I share what the day was like and the absolutely awesome community response that happened. On that same day Microsoft finally re-released the October 2018 Update. We discuss the roll out and a new promise of quality and transparency moving forward. I talk about their opportunity to regain users trust with the next feature update. We also have Surface Headphones and Surface Studio 2 reviews, Xbox news, and plenty of other goodies including a new way to listen to the show on Alexa devices.

Once again we are talking about the still to happen re-release of the October 2018 Update. I shared my thoughts on the one thing that could make things much clearer for everyone involved. I also share where we are at with current releases in the Windows Insider Program including potentially new code names for future feature updates after the release of Windows 10 19H1 next year. We then catch up on the normal collection of progress and new features/capabilities for several apps from the Microsoft Store and then talk about the looming end of life for Windows 7 and a new countdown timer that has appeared on the web. We also discuss the big Apple hardware announcements this past week along with Xbox related gaming news, some Spotify growth and benefits information, and changes to Flickr free accounts. There are other tidbits sprinkled throughout the show, so be sure to listen all the way until the end to catch everything!
