Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 276 #OTP

Insidering picked up its pace with the release of not one but two fast ring builds for Windows Insiders. We also finally got to try out the Your Phone app that was announced for Windows 10 back at Build 2018. The timing and availability of its release gives us a couple of clues about when Microsoft might be targeting its ultimate release. A big chunk of this week’s show is spent discussing the retail availability of Microsoft Surface Go and the flood of reviews that came out this past Thursday. Sentiments are quite mixed on the devices capabilities but it no doubt carries many of the identifying features that make it a Surface. We of course have other news items including some stuff from Xbox, Apple, Google and one of my favorite subject areas – NASA. So be sure you listen all the way to the end so nothing is missed. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 218 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 218 of Observed.Tech and what is only our second show of 2017. I explain why as I kick off this episode and then I dive into what has been happening over the last month or so – or at least the big picture stuff. The first item of big news is a 30 day delay in releasing February Patch Tuesday updates due to an issue impacting the building of the patches for distribution. Then we jump into all theĀ movement with Windows 10 on both the PC and Mobile fronts so I talk about the builds released since my last show and catch you up on some features and other new including Creators Update now being feature complete. I also discuss what that means for Windows 10 and Insiders who are testing Fast Ring builds. I share my experience earlier this month when I traveled to Houston, Texas to attend the NASA Social SpaceBowl at Space Center Houston and the Johnson Space Center. Technology plays a role in our space program but it is not all about flashy gadgets and gizmos. I also talked to a NASA ISS Flight Controller who used to be an IT Pro. He shared some information about ISS and its computer systems that he helps to manage – including HoloLens! Logitech announced and released their new BRIO 4K Pro Webcam and I share my experience with it so far as I have a review unit on hand. It is amazing to think it is only the second consumer webcam available for Windows 10 that supports facial recognition log on with Windows Hello. As always there are other tidbits scattered throughout the show including a new Insider program for IT Pros, Outlook.com Premium, using an Outlook calendar with Amazon’s Alexa, and the upcoming release of Visual Studio 2017. Enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
