Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 148 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 148. This is our post Windows 10 focused episode but we still have lots of Windows 10 information to be discussed. In fact, something tells me there will be no shortage of Windows 10 info for the next year or so. Now that the Windows 10 Technical Preview has been out for a couple of weeks different enthusiasts have been poking under the hood and discovering some pretty handy information about where Windows 10 may be headed. I also spend some time talking about the new Microsoft hardware I recently reviewed that is either already available or will be out by the end of the month. There is also plenty of news on the Surface front from a huge conference give away, new Surface Pen firmware and a new app to manage some Surface Pro 3 settings. Also up for discussion is Microsoft popularity as a global brand, a mis-step by their new CEO and an in-depth look at the three Microsoft CEO’s and where the company is heading by Vanity Fair. Of course there are many other items to be discussed this week so make sure you listen in to catch all the news. Until next time enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
