Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 230 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 230 of Observed.Tech. It is a short week for this episode of the podcast because I only just recorded episode 229 four days ago but that was a necessity after my trip to Build 2017 in Seattle to get caught up. We get back on track with our Saturday morning recording sessions today and cover some follow up items from Build and the WannaCry Malware episode among other things. This past week we saw a huge update to OneNote that now brings a common UI across all of the platforms it is on from PC to iOS, Android, and the web plus I tell you about the super secret experimental features option you can turn on to try out new features before they go final. We catch up on the latest build of Windows 10 Redstone 3, aka the Fall Creators Update, and also talk more about wider access to Story Remix and the new Photos app on all of your Windows 10 devices. Of course, the rumors about next week’s Shanghai event now include leaked images of the Surface hardware that is supposedly going to be launched next week so we talk a little about that as well. Elsewhere you will find tidbits about Linux on Windows 10 S, Xbox One console updates, Twitter and your data privacy, crowdfunding platforms cracking down on risky campaigns, going underground at Microsoft, and a few updates from Google I/O this past week. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 229 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 229 of Observed.Tech. This weeks show is a couple of days late because of my travel back from Build 2017 in Seattle and some recovery time but in this episode I walk through all the major announcements that impact Windows 10 and the new ecosystem Microsoft discussed last week. Before I dived into details from Build, I addressed an email I received from a listener last week after I talked about and subsequently removed the links to subscribe to the podcast in Zune. It helped me understand some still make tech choices that are different than my own which is OK as long as it does not compromise security of your OS ecosystem. That link is now back on this show page in the options below due to that email. I then spend most of the show talking about new features for the now officially dubbed Fall Creators Update (Redstone 3) such as OneDrive Files On-Demand, Timeline, Pick Up Where You Left Off, a new Cloud-powered Clipboard and Story Remix – the most popular demo from nearly five hours of keynotes. In addition I cover the new Fluent Design Language, what we have known as Project NEON until now, and how that is starting to appear in more first party apps on both Windows 10 desktop and mobile devices. Links to all of the related news are on the Show Notes page so make sure you go visit there and read through all the details I highlighted in this episode. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
