Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 181 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 181 of Observed Tech which has been recorded on the 74th anniversary of the attacks on Pearl Harbor so please take some time to read about that historic day. In this how I talk about Microsoft and how they have embraced feedback as they develop Windows and other major software and services, the release of a new Windows 10 Mobile build that will finally be made available to the Lumia 550, 950 and 950 XL handsets and some of the news from Microsoft’s annual shareholder meeting that was held last week. Other areas that are discussed include HoloLens and its progress including two of the devices finally making it into space on their way to the International Space Station, Black Friday stats and understanding where Microsoft stands on hardware and software updates for their software and services. Along the way the show is sprinkled with items like using an Xbox One Kinect to sign into Windows 10 using facial recognition, improving the Windows 10 upgrade experience, Skype updates for business and consumers, AT&T charging more for grandfathered unlimited plans and predictions for 2016 from Microsoft Research. Until next time enjoy the show and thanks 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.
