We catch up on a slow week for Windows Insiders and discuss the potential release of the first 19H2 bits to testers. Then we discuss COMPUTEX and Microsoft’s interesting announcement about a modern operating system right in the middle of them sharing about new OEM hardware running Windows 10. Of course, spread throughout the show we talk about other things like the changes around the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and why some believe it is dead, tons of updates around apps and services, plus tidbits about gaming, security, and social media. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 228 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 228 of Observed.Tech. No surprises this week as I spend the vast majority of this show talking about Microsoft’s big education event that happened this past week in New York City. That means discussing the new Surface Laptop, Windows 10 S, Office 365 for Education with Microsoft Teams, Minecraft for Education and its new add-on Code Builder. I did jump up on my soapbox early about some coverage I saw this week after the event that just bugged me to no end and therefore I had to speak up. I promise it only lasts for a few minutes and then I move on! However, after all of that we did get new Redstone 3 and Feature 2 builds for PCs and Mobile devices late in the week so they get time in the sun along with more apps showing up on Fast Ring builds that are giving us a closer look at Project NEON and its popular transparency/translucence in the app UI. Then finally I spend some time talking about Build 2017, Microsoft’s annual developer focused/centric conference that is being held in Seattle from 10 to 12 May. I review some of the sessions I think are going to have a big impact on consumers plus I will be out in Seattle for all the activities to cover it for our Penton Tech Channel sites. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
