Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 184 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 184 of Observed Tech – the final show of 2015! In this last show of the year, I start out talking about sharing hotel rooms with strangers, Amazon Prime adding lots of new customers over the holidays, Star Wars: The Force Awakens reaching$1 billion in box office sales and a price hike plus delivery delay for the Surface Hub. One of the best items of news in the Microsoft world last week was the appearance of Microsoft Chief Marketing Officer Chris Caposella on the Windows Weekly podcast and his discussion along several fronts including mobile hardware such as Lumia 650 and Surface Phone, Windows 10 upgrades, cultural changes at the company, the hit and miss of the Xbox One Elite Controller plus the status of Microsoft vs Amazon on the cloud front. Also in the line up is the arrival of more apps which support the Universal Windows Platform, kind of free Windows 10 product keys, deadline for Microsoft contract workers, misinterpreted Windows 10 patches, why government agencies should upgrade to Windows 10 and firmware updates for Lumia 950 and 950 XL. Of course last week also saw the release of 13 Beatles albums to streaming services including Groove Music on Windows 10, Bing search engine growth, taking out Man in the Middle ad injection and browser hijacking, new updates for Windows App Studio and deploying Windows 10 at Microsoft. There are plenty of other items sprinkled throughout the show so until next time enjoy and thanks for listening.

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 170 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 170 of Observed Tech. On the eve of Microsoft’s 2015 Worldwide Partner Conference I wanted to get a show recorded to catch up on the big ticket items from the last couple of weeks. Over that time frame there has been four desktop builds of Windows 10 released (10158, 10159, 10162 and 10166) along with a new Windows 10 Mobile build (10166). Of course, the big news item was the Windows Phone related cuts and layoffs that Microsoft announced this past week and that is impacting nearly 8,000 employees who will soon be out of a job. I definitely wish them all good luck on their new opportunities because this is impacting people – the hardware and other concerns come second to that. Along with those items there is also news about Office 2016, Windows 10 RTM, Windows Hello facial recognition, Groove music and a new universal Remote Desktop app for Windows 10. Until next time enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
