Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 205 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 205 of Observed.Tech! Today’s show went for almost an hour so there is a lot to discuss as it has been a busy week around Microsoft and tech in general. I start off by spending some time talking about the latest concerns around Windows 10 regarding privacy and security then I bring everyone up to date on the release of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update for mobile devices. We are also now fully into the development of Redstone 2, the next major release of Windows 10 expected in 2017, with the release of Build 14905 this week for PCs and mobile devices. Windows as a Service (WaaS) with its cumulative updates is now rubbing off on Windows 7 and 8.1 as those systems will now start getting updates rolled into a single package. This is causing some concerns right now but in the long run should improve the update experience on these versions of Windows. It kicks off in October of this year. In the Xbox world we talk about the companies acquisition of livestreaming service Beam, the win in July for console sales versus Sony and Game Previews coming to Windows 10 this fall. As always, you can expect plenty of other tidbits throughout the episode including Microsoft once again changing their support policy for Intel’s 6th Gen Skylake chipset, online safety resources, Windows 10 getting some security respect from an unexpected group and unboxing the Nexdock device for your small form factor PCs. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening!

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 194 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 194 of Observed Tech. Bots, Bots, Bots. It seems after Microsoft laid out there new intelligent bot strategy at Build 2016 all kinds of bot related announcements are starting to be made by companies such as Facebook, Kik, Slack and Telegram. Now we just need to watch and see if everyone is skating towards where the puck is or where it will be when it comes to bots. Also of note this week are new Windows 10 Mobile features that will come out as part of the Anniversary Update expected this July – not bad for a dead platform – but these announcements were low key at Build 2016 instead of on the keynote stage. Plenty to talk about when it comes to the Windows 10 Anniversary Update especially with the release of Windows 10 Build 14316 to Insiders which is full of new features that are expected this summer with the next major release of Windows 10. There was also a Windows 10 Roadmap published by Microsoft last week that shows some upcoming Windows 10 features that had not even been announced yet. I also shared my experience of using Surface Book for the first week, what it was like re-experiencing HoloLens at Build 2016 and my opportunity to check out the upcoming new inking features one-on-one during Build. Other items that I discuss include NexDock reaching its funding goal, the fact that we always seem to be patching these days, social media news for Twitter and the NFL, Facebook and live video and more warnings about email and tech support scams. Finally, I mention the tremendous feat by SpaceX last Friday to land their Falcon 9 1st Stage on a barge at sea and a great 50% off deal for my listeners for the pro version of CloudBerry Desktop Backup from CloudBerry Labs. As always, you can expect plenty of other tidbits throughout the episode. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
