Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 183 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 183 of Observed Tech. Since Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released last week I start off by talking about seeing the movie, so spoilers of course, and some of the possibilities that you have in Windows to connect with the movie and its properties. Next up for discussion is the big list of Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps that were released and/or updated last week by some very big name companies including the Wall Street Journal, Netflix and American Express. It seems like UWP just might work as Microsoft wants it to by bringing apps and services to the Windows 1o desktop and mobile. I then catch you up on my participation in the #LumiaTrials where I am putting a Lumia 950 through its paces and the discussion that myself and fellow MVP Shawn Keene had on Blab last week about the hardware and Continuum. Of course lots of updates in this show about Windows 10 including the latest builds and updates for desktop, mobile, info about when existing handsets will get the new OS and release of the first Redstone build for Insiders. After that we hit on some OneDrive storage and placeholder news, how IE is going to make sure you are on the latest version starting next month and some HoloLens news. Throughout the show you will also find other tidbits of interest so dive in and have fun catching up. Until next time enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
