Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 200 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 200 of Observed.Tech! After profusely thanking you, my listeners, for listening and supporting the podcast as we reach episode 200 I jump right into the mix with Windows 10 news and there was plenty of it this past week. I start off discussing the $10K small claims court judgement against Microsoft for a reported non-voluntary upgrade to Windows 10 and how that and the news of Microsoft changing their upgrade dialog box are completely unrelated except for the timing of each news story coming out in the tech press. Next I share with you my analysis of the release pace of Windows 10 Insider builds comparing the lead up to Version 1507, 1511 and now Anniversary Update of Windows 10 and how the team has nearly doubled the number of builds for this years update. Pretty amazing hustle as Dona Sarkar would say. I also catch you up on the latest Windows 10 news about the release date for the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, the latest Fast and Slow Ring builds for testers plus the fact users have less than 30 days to get their free upgrade to Windows 10. In other items I talk about new apps and hardware for Windows 10 plus some new hardware and updates for the Verizon Lumia Icon and the AT&T Nokia Lumia 1520 from Windows Phone 8.1 to Windows 10. As always, you can expect plenty of other tidbits throughout the episode including Xbox, tech tips and a new book coming from Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening!

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 159 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 159 of the Observed Tech PODCAST and it has been far too long! After a long six week hiatus we are back with a lot of Windows 10 related news and info including a release window, hardware requirements for the desktop and mobile versions and plenty of hands on time with the latest technical preview build. Microsoft Band continues to march forward and now has even wider availability and is heading towards the UK next month plus we also confirm that Internet Explorer’s pronounced death was a bit premature. On the Xbox One front I share about my own experience of adding external storage to my console; your music collection stored in OneDrive can now be streamed to all of your Windows devices and over the web and the dilemma of using parental controls or letting your kid rack up $4,500 in DLC charges. Of course there are plenty of other news items that get discussed in this catch-up episode so come on in and take part in the discussion. Until next time enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
