Free to Play – Apex Legends Joins Battle Royale Genre

There were a couple of leaks this past weekend but until those happened there was no indication of Respawn offering their own version of Battle Royale. Initial reception of the new title has been positive thus far.

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 289 #OTP

This week we kick off with the latest in the Windows Insider Program and I share some thoughts on the tweaks we are seeing and what it might mean for the direction of the 19H1 feature update. We are also another week without any updates about the re-release of the October 2018 Update and the blogosphere this week spent time commenting on the lack of communications from Microsoft on this updates release. Without improved communications from Redmond, regaining users trust is going to be challenge. Of course, we have app update news, a ton of Xbox related announcements after XO18 this week in Europe including several new additions to Xbox Game Pass, plus we talk about Samsung showing off their first Foldables phone and the updates Google is making to Android to support the new form factor. There are lots of other tidbits scattered throughout the show like any other episode so be sure to listen until the very end to catch everything.

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 284 #OTP

We were supposed to be kicking this show off with all the details around the launch of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update along with the news from the Microsoft hardware/software event held in New York City this past week. We will still talk about those events however, it will be tempered with the fact that this sixth feature update’s roll out has been halted by Microsoft. We will discuss the reasons behind that abrupt change and other aspects of the roll out. Still, despite that breaking news from late last week about this update, the announcements made at the New York City event were significant. What we heard and saw about new hardware and software from Microsoft were important elements of the companies strategy moving forward and answers a few questions about the future.

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 276 #OTP

Insidering picked up its pace with the release of not one but two fast ring builds for Windows Insiders. We also finally got to try out the Your Phone app that was announced for Windows 10 back at Build 2018. The timing and availability of its release gives us a couple of clues about when Microsoft might be targeting its ultimate release. A big chunk of this week’s show is spent discussing the retail availability of Microsoft Surface Go and the flood of reviews that came out this past Thursday. Sentiments are quite mixed on the devices capabilities but it no doubt carries many of the identifying features that make it a Surface. We of course have other news items including some stuff from Xbox, Apple, Google and one of my favorite subject areas – NASA. So be sure you listen all the way to the end so nothing is missed. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
