Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 182 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 182 of Observed Tech. In this show I talk about Surface, the NFL, inaccurate headlines and a great interview that the folks at GeekWire did last week with Panos Panay about all things hardware related at Microsoft. I also discuss how close we are to seeing Windows 10 Mobile released to the public including older Lumia handsets that can run the operating system. We should also be seeing this update arrive soon for non Lumia devices around the same time. Last week was a big week for Windows 10 Mobile as it appears the latest version of the new Mobile OS made it onto commercial handsets with little delay from ATT. Hopefully, that is the first step in a new trend of OS updates not being delayed by the carrier that we are so used to experiencing. I also share my latest experience with Continuum Mode on the Lumia 950 and what it was like to use nothing but that for four straight hours. Next up was momentum that is starting to build in the direction of Windows 10 as some big name companies are bringing their services to Windows 10 devices using the Universal Windows Platform. Other items that are sprinkled throughout the show include Cortana going full cross platform, IE updates, Microsoft Band v2 update that brings new features and Microsoft’s apologies about OneDrive free storage and their latest hardware devices. Finally I talk a little about NASA, space and HoloLens finally arriving on the International Space Station. Until next time enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
