Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 232 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 232 of Observed.Tech. It has been a huge busy week to catch up on from all the new hardware at COMPUTEX, a little Windows Insidering adventure with inadvertent build releases, Google blocking ads, continued discussions around system security and real-time protection, and a new podcast I am now hosting for work. Starting with that last item, I am happy to invite all of you to listen in on the inaugural episode of the IT Pro Today PODCAST that we just started over at Penton and the Windows IT Pro website. I co-host with one of my Content Editors and the format will include an interview with someone in the IT Pro/Tech Community plus a follow on round table segment to talk about current news and other items. I hope you will come over and check out the show as we are getting started. Many of you know last week that some builds were inadvertently sent out to Windows Insiders and so we talk about that and how to sort your device out if you ended up getting the unintended build. Of course, COMPUTEX was big last week with so many hardware related announcements so I discuss those and how OEM hardware is improving overall plus what impact some new gear will have on Microsoft’s mobile plans. Sprinkled through out the show is other news such as Google Chrome and blocking ads, how smartphones have impacted customer service, Amazon forking out a lot of money for some unauthorized purchases, the 2017 Internet Trends report, and one of the biggest airplanes you have ever seen! As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 155 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 155. In this show I share more concerning my recent news about joining the new SuperSite for Windows as a regular contributor and what that all means for WindowsObserver.com and the Observed Tech PODCAST (BLUF: nothing is changing). Then I jump into all the news we had over the past week including details about the ramped up roll out of Microsoft’s Lumia Denim update, saving Outlook.com attachments to your OneDrive, Surface and PayPal going retail Point Of Sale, firmware updates for all the Surface Pro devices including what appears to be a fix for the WiFi issues on Surface Pro 3, and more about backing up your PC to Microsoft Azure. I help with some clarity about the confusing discussion around Windows 7 SP1 main stream support ending earlier this week and discuss Xbox One winning the monthly US sales challenge and what might be a permanent price drop for the console. Of course, lots of discussions around Windows 10 since we have the big consumer event coming up this week so we dig through a few of those stories as well. As always there are plenty of other tidbits from the tech news scene to share and chat about spread throughout the show. Until next time enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
