Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 191 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 191 of Observed Tech. The first week of March was busy with Windows 10 builds for PCs and mobile for testers along with a new Cumulative Update for the production build of the operating system on desktops. We heard about likely delays related to Windows 10 Redstone and that only one major Windows 10 update will be delivered this year with the second one, originally expected this fall, being pushed into 2017. There was also news around Xbox One including a new preview build that delivers bigger gaming parties and the ability to now order Xbox 360 Backwards Compatible games directly from the console. I also give details of a spat by one developer and Microsoft’s response to that and other discussions around Xbox’s future. Virtual and Augmented Reality are coming closer to reality with the opening of pre-orders of the HTC Vive and the Microsoft HoloLens and even McDonald’s is getting into the world of VR. Of course, as always, there are lots of other tidbits sprinkled throughout this episode so please jump in and get caught up on the latest headlines. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening.

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 172 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 172 of Observed Tech. This episode brings you plenty of Windows 10 goodness and information including the new operating systems momentum in its first month of availability. Suffice it to say the supposed last version of Windows has easily surpassed its predecessors and these numbers are machines running Windows 10 and not just licenses that have been sold. I also have info about Windows 10 updates, Windows Hello hardware, a new Snip program with voice and inking annotation plus Microsoft’s effort to make Office the focal point of the company instead of Windows. In addition to the Windows 10 stuff I also talk about the 20th anniversary of Windows 95’s release and a 20 year birthday that lands a little closer to home. Until next time enjoy the show and thanks for listening.

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 170 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 170 of Observed Tech. On the eve of Microsoft’s 2015 Worldwide Partner Conference I wanted to get a show recorded to catch up on the big ticket items from the last couple of weeks. Over that time frame there has been four desktop builds of Windows 10 released (10158, 10159, 10162 and 10166) along with a new Windows 10 Mobile build (10166). Of course, the big news item was the Windows Phone related cuts and layoffs that Microsoft announced this past week and that is impacting nearly 8,000 employees who will soon be out of a job. I definitely wish them all good luck on their new opportunities because this is impacting people – the hardware and other concerns come second to that. Along with those items there is also news about Office 2016, Windows 10 RTM, Windows Hello facial recognition, Groove music and a new universal Remote Desktop app for Windows 10. Until next time enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
