Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 176 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 176 of Observed Tech. In this show we take a look at Microsoft’s very solid Q1 2016 financial quarter which was announced last week and resulted in the companies stock reaching all time highs in trading. Along with that positive news was info about 1,000 jobs that were cut in the companies continuing effort to become more efficient and cost effective. We also learned last week that Bing is finally profitable for the Redmond company and is a key element in so many other areas for Microsoft and a reason for its success. Of course, what show would be complete without some Windows 10 related news about mobile, desktop and console builds of the new operating system so that is in this episode as well. To top things off I talk about the mobile crossroads I have reached with Android and Windows 10 Mobile/Windows Phone and how that is impacting my future mobile choices. No show next week as I will be in Redmond on the Microsoft Campus for the annual MVP Summit but I will bring you as much public information as I can throughout the week. Until next time enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
