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.
