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 261 #OTP

Welcome to episode 261 of Observed Tech. This week I am still dealing with some tickles in my throat so apologies for coughing in your ears during this show!
However, despite that we talk about a bug I am experiencing on at least two of my bare metal test devices running Windows 10 Redstone 4 Build 17133. There is a work around so that can help you out if you are seeing the same issue on your systems. We catchup on the status of Redstone 4 and 5 as development winds down for RS4 and it ramps up for RS5. Build 17133 is now in Release Preview so that means we are really close to general availability for this next feature update.
I share some articles that have surfaced this week about the big reorganization at Microsoft – there are some really good takes and some I do not agree with at all. I will leave you to form an opinion on these stories yourself but suffice it to say that officially we will see a lot at Build 2018 next month about these changes. Of course, there are other news headlines throughout the show including updated security features for consumer subscribers to Office 365, the CLOUD Act’s impact/perception, AI training courses from Microsoft, and social media company Facebook facing their own Trustworthy Computing moment so be sure to listen all the way until the end and not miss anything. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 142 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 142. I begin the show by explaining a change in the weekly production and publication of the OTP because of my new full time job. Bottom line is that you should get each week’s new episode on Monday and occasionally on Tuesday when the Monday is a holiday – like this week for example. Flexibility is the name of the game when it comes to getting the podcast out but it is a good problem to have – a full time job to work around. I also hit on apps and Windows Phone again because it always seems to be an issue and also mention the breaking news of upload file size limitations being removed for Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage. Of course the normal collection of tech news and other items fill up the rest of the show. Until next time enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
