Faith, Tech, and Space (Episode 15)

Here at the very end of August in a quite different year than we all expected when it started, there is still plenty to discuss about faith, tech, and space.

Surface Duo review are in the hands of reviewers and influencers but it is everyday folks without embargos that are going into Best Buy and AT&T stores to give full operational demos of the dual-screened devices ahead of schedule.

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 169 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 169 of Observed Tech. After a lot of talk last episode about whether or not Windows 10 would be free or not we do delve into that topic a little bit more in this show but not nearly as extensively compared to last week. Nothing has really changed so nothing to be worried about. I am sure Microsoft is not sitting in Redmond plotting different ways to screw over customers in this upgrade process. In other areas I talk about the breakup between Oracle’s JAVA install and the Ask Toolbar, Samsung deciding to disable Windows Update and not admitting it, a new vision and mission for Microsoft, Windows 10 Mobile Build 10149, changes to Family Safety, continuing as an Insider, counting down to Windows 10 RTM and then finally a wrap up about my experience this past weekend witnessing the loss of SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket which included Microsoft HoloLens as part of the cargo. Until next time enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
