Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 309 #OTP

This week there was a lot happening in the Microsoft tech world.

I dive into the details and offer my observations on where things might be going over the next several months. Of course, we have plenty of other news throughout the show such as the Samsung OneNote UI and Android 9 Pie arriving on T-Mobile’s Galaxy S9/S9+, Amazon acquiring eero who builds a very popular Wi-Fi wire mesh system, and Chrome OS might be getting virtual desktops soon.
