Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 308 #OTP

What an absolutely eye opening and jaw dropping week. I kick the show off talking about my return from Twitter Exile and then we dive into what might be the biggest news in the history of Windows 10 and discuss what it all means for Windows Insiders and everyday users of Microsoft’s latest operating system. Of course, there are plenty of other headlines this week that I will mention and share with you from social media, software, apps and services, plus various items from many other areas of the tech scene. Yes – there is a little space news in the wrap up as well. Please be sure to listen from beginning to end for everything.

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 132 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 132 – the Surface Edition. Yesterday was Microsoft’s big Surface announcement in New York City and by big I mean they went big and not small as the rumors were indicating. I lead the show off with some of my impressions of the event and Surface Pro 3 however, there is an interesting twist to the Surface Mini being a no-show so I talk about that during the show as well. I also spend some time talking about building apps in the updated Windows App Studio and an issue that frustrated me for about 24 hours trying to get the apps certified. As I get things going in the Start Up section I discuss Lenovo over taking Apple in PC sales, Emory University and their re-format headache, data caps, rumored iPad split-screen multi-tasking, Windows Phone Dev Center adds 10 new languages, Sony still beating Microsoft in the month to month console skirmishes, Cortana coming to Windows, a TV renaissance and the Google Adsense fraud lawsuit. The usual round up of news items fill the middle of the show as always because I do keep an eye on those areas every day. You will find tidbits and opinions relating to Microsoft, Windows, Windows Phone, Office, Security, Cloud, Internet Explorer, Services, Hardware, Apps, Xbox and Social Media in that part of the show. During Shut Down I dive into some other interesting items you should check out including Google pulling another public feature, securing your WordPress based website, Windows XP Enterprise market share finally below 10%, coding as a game, the Florida Star Trek mansion is for sale, Titanfall companion app available on top 3 mobile platforms, the Internet of your things, latest app counts in Windows and Windows Phone store, Michael Jackson’s hologram and Microsoft’s retreat from announcing Surface Mini. Until next time enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
