Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 261 #OTP

Welcome to episode 261 of Observed Tech. This week I am still dealing with some tickles in my throat so apologies for coughing in your ears during this show!
However, despite that we talk about a bug I am experiencing on at least two of my bare metal test devices running Windows 10 Redstone 4 Build 17133. There is a work around so that can help you out if you are seeing the same issue on your systems. We catchup on the status of Redstone 4 and 5 as development winds down for RS4 and it ramps up for RS5. Build 17133 is now in Release Preview so that means we are really close to general availability for this next feature update.
I share some articles that have surfaced this week about the big reorganization at Microsoft – there are some really good takes and some I do not agree with at all. I will leave you to form an opinion on these stories yourself but suffice it to say that officially we will see a lot at Build 2018 next month about these changes. Of course, there are other news headlines throughout the show including updated security features for consumer subscribers to Office 365, the CLOUD Act’s impact/perception, AI training courses from Microsoft, and social media company Facebook facing their own Trustworthy Computing moment so be sure to listen all the way until the end and not miss anything. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 257 #OTP

Welcome to episode 257 of Observed Tech. After a 24 hour delay due to an SSL certificate that had not been updated here we are with this show where we talk about the countdown to the release of the fifth feature update for Windows 10, currently know by its development code name of Redstone 4, and what the schedule might look like for its upcoming release. I also cover the latest Windows Insider builds and how Microsoft has once again started to push Skip Ahead builds in preparation for Redstone 5 development that is starting for the next feature update expected later this year. I then jump in and talk about the reports of various apps with the term Windows in their title being asked to make a change to stay in the Microsoft Store and the crazy pace of commercial upgrades from Windows 7 to Windows 10 since the beginning of this year. There have been several new items for developers including a new SDK, Visual Studio Preview release, and another Windows Developer Community Standup later this week. Then I talk about a new experimental program that ties certain groups of Insiders into Cohorts to test key areas of Windows 10 and the list of limitations for Windows 10 on ARM that may have been inadvertently released this past week. Of course, there are other news headlines throughout the show including an easy way to track Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster out there in space so be sure to listen all the way until the end and not miss anything. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
