Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 191 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 191 of Observed Tech. The first week of March was busy with Windows 10 builds for PCs and mobile for testers along with a new Cumulative Update for the production build of the operating system on desktops. We heard about likely delays related to Windows 10 Redstone and that only one major Windows 10 update will be delivered this year with the second one, originally expected this fall, being pushed into 2017. There was also news around Xbox One including a new preview build that delivers bigger gaming parties and the ability to now order Xbox 360 Backwards Compatible games directly from the console. I also give details of a spat by one developer and Microsoft’s response to that and other discussions around Xbox’s future. Virtual and Augmented Reality are coming closer to reality with the opening of pre-orders of the HTC Vive and the Microsoft HoloLens and even McDonald’s is getting into the world of VR. Of course, as always, there are lots of other tidbits sprinkled throughout this episode so please jump in and get caught up on the latest headlines. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
