Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 246 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 246 of Observed Tech. In this show we talk about Satya Nadella and his leadership at Microsoft as CEO on the even of Ignite and the release of his new book Hit Refresh which will come out on 26 September. We also discuss the upcoming availability of hardware and software to finally make the Windows Mixed Reality Portal available on the Fall Creators Update which is scheduled to be released in just a few weeks. Speaking of the Fall Creators Update, there was plenty of action this week in the Redstone 3 testing arena as Microsoft speeds up the pace of new builds to get ready for this updates release on 17 October 2017. This week we had three new builds, a new build designated for Slow Ring and even a new Slow Ring build for Windows 10 Mobile. Towards the end we talk about the crazy world of Trojans and security concerns when someone gets malicious code into your software and uses your own digital certificates to validate it as part of the code. Of course, there is other news relating to apps and services from Microsoft for Windows 10 and plenty of other tidbits across a wide range of tech subjects throughout the show so be sure to listen all the way until the end. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 143 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 143. This week I am testing a new method of recording the show for when I am away from my home recording studio. I am using a handheld digital audio recorder to record the main element of the show and then I will edit that into my standard opening and closing sequences to see how it all fits together. Luckily I have Audacity and I can tweak the recording to improve the sound but expect it to sound a little different this week.
Many topics get covered in this weeks show including the recent hack of Apple’s iCloud, more fan funding non-sense this time on YouTube, fake cell phone towers, NFL apps gone wild on Windows Phone for the new NFL football season, the small form factor Windows 8 devices that were announced this past week at IFA2014 in Europe and the newest Nokia Lumia’s as well. Of course, there is always Windows 9 Threshold news as we get ever closer to that expected technical preview at the end of September and we also talk about Cortana having some fun at Siri’s expense plus Cortana’s recent personality tweak. Until next time enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
