Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 196 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 196 of Observed Tech. We are less than two months away from the expected release of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update in late July so there is plenty to keep talking about in the Windows 10 world. Last week Windows Insiders received Build 14352 for testing that introduced a couple new features to help with interaction with Cortana and keeping your system secure. There was also a brief appearance for a LastPass browser extension for Microsoft Edge but it has been made unavailable now for some reason. I must admit it was nice to have that extension while it lasted. I share some interesting market share stats for Windows 7 and Windows 10 including comparing their numbers between a work day and a weekend day off. The results just might surprise you. Also covered in this show are some new Universal Windows Platform (UWP) apps including the Remote Desktop that is now out of preview and has Continuum support plus a new UWP app called Hacked that alerts you if your email address shows up in a security breach. The last app related discussion is about a request from a pair of app developers asking everyone to crowdfund them for $10,000 to cover two months of expenses while they convert their app into a UWP version. As always, you can expect plenty of other tidbits throughout the episode. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
