Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 314 #OTP

This week I share about my recent office reorganization and the resulting tech purge that it has resulted in as I start to clear out old technology and e-cycle it. We catch up on a slow week for Windows Insiders and discuss the potential release of the first 19H2 bits to testers. Then we discuss COMPUTEX and Microsoft’s interesting announcement about a modern operating system right in the middle of them sharing about new OEM hardware running Windows 10. Of course, spread throughout the show we talk about other things like the changes around the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and why some believe it is dead, tons of updates around apps and services, plus tidbits about gaming, security, and social media. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 306 #OTP

This week I am back in the home studio after spending a week in Redmond at the Microsoft campus for the annual MVP Summit. As always, it was a great week with lots of content, friends and learning. It was also a very busy week for Windows Insiders for build releases and progression in the final development stages for the next feature update for Windows 10. We get caught up on all of those details and then talk about plenty of other tech news from this past week. Be sure to listen from start to finish to catch everything!

Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 212 #OTP

After a hiatus for work, travel and a working vacation we are back on Observed.Tech and the timing could not be more perfect. In the last 24 hours alone Microsoft has released a massive update to Windows Insiders with Windows 10 Build 14986 aka the Creators Update – the expected third major Feature Update to Windows 10 that is due out in March 2017. Then at WinHEC in China they announced Project Evo for Mixed Reality devices in partnership with Intel for the PC hardware and Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP and Lenovo for a new range of head mounted devices or HMDs to deliver the mixed reality experience at a wide variety of price points to Windows 10 users. After that we heard of the new partnership between Microsoft and Qualcomm to deliver the full blown version of Windows 10 including x86 desktop programs through emulation in 2017. These devices will have a wide range of form factors and could feasibly include phones, tablets, laptops, 2 in 1s, and maybe even home devices similar to Amazon Echo and Google Home. It certainly appears when Microsoft said earlier this year their focus was not on mobile for right now or last week when Satya Nadella told concerned stockholders they were not abandoning mobile that they were right on the mark. It is about to be a very exciting year in the Microsoft and Windows ecosystem and I share my excitement in this week’s return from hiatus show. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening!

Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 205 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 205 of Observed.Tech! Today’s show went for almost an hour so there is a lot to discuss as it has been a busy week around Microsoft and tech in general. I start off by spending some time talking about the latest concerns around Windows 10 regarding privacy and security then I bring everyone up to date on the release of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update for mobile devices. We are also now fully into the development of Redstone 2, the next major release of Windows 10 expected in 2017, with the release of Build 14905 this week for PCs and mobile devices. Windows as a Service (WaaS) with its cumulative updates is now rubbing off on Windows 7 and 8.1 as those systems will now start getting updates rolled into a single package. This is causing some concerns right now but in the long run should improve the update experience on these versions of Windows. It kicks off in October of this year. In the Xbox world we talk about the companies acquisition of livestreaming service Beam, the win in July for console sales versus Sony and Game Previews coming to Windows 10 this fall. As always, you can expect plenty of other tidbits throughout the episode including Microsoft once again changing their support policy for Intel’s 6th Gen Skylake chipset, online safety resources, Windows 10 getting some security respect from an unexpected group and unboxing the Nexdock device for your small form factor PCs. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening!
