Of course, the show is littered with headlines around app updates, services, security, social media, Xbox, gaming and a promise for a new privacy focus from Facebook. I catch you up on my latest space news and talk about a scary podcast extortion scam that is happening to some podcasters.

Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 204 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 204 of Observed.Tech! I get things started reminiscing about my retirement from the Navy five years ago today and some thoughts on entertainment and language in a recent movie and an upcoming TV series. Then I convert into full Windows 10 Mode as I discuss the first week with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update and how that is going including the reported issues of freezes, crashes, etc. that are happening to some users. Of course that is followed by plenty of content about the update and the need to get ready for new development builds to begin rolling out for Redstone 2. Believe it or not there is an organization in this world still depending upon Windows XP on 27,000 devices and we also have some rumors about new Surface hardware that might or might not be coming out next year. It is even rumored that OneDrive Placeholders might find their way into Redstone 2 as well. As always, you can expect plenty of other tidbits throughout the episode including Satya Nadella talking about Microsoft at this stage in the companies existence, a free portal to get the key needed to unlock your files that are being held for ransom and the origin of Microsoft’s popular NinjaCat. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening!
