Welcome to the 251 of Observed Tech. In the first of our second 250 episodes we jump in and talk about Windows 10 Redstone 4 and the latest build released this past week for the next major feature update for Windows 10 that is expected in Spring 2018. There are some great new features and two I am particularly enamored with right now. Next up are some significant changes that have been made on the Twitter social media platform and I share how you can get access to them even though the official Twitter app for Windows 10 has not yet been updated to support the new enhancements. Then I discuss some new IT Pro related news out of Microsoft and then provide you with a bunch of information about the release of the Xbox One X. Suffice it to say you better get your bandwidth ready if you want to enjoy the 4K upgrades to your favorite games. Of course, there are plenty of other news headlines in the show so be sure to listen all the way until the end so you do not miss any. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
