Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 308 #OTP

What an absolutely eye opening and jaw dropping week. I kick the show off talking about my return from Twitter Exile and then we dive into what might be the biggest news in the history of Windows 10 and discuss what it all means for Windows Insiders and everyday users of Microsoft’s latest operating system. Of course, there are plenty of other headlines this week that I will mention and share with you from social media, software, apps and services, plus various items from many other areas of the tech scene. Yes – there is a little space news in the wrap up as well. Please be sure to listen from beginning to end for everything.

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 142 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 142. I begin the show by explaining a change in the weekly production and publication of the OTP because of my new full time job. Bottom line is that you should get each week’s new episode on Monday and occasionally on Tuesday when the Monday is a holiday – like this week for example. Flexibility is the name of the game when it comes to getting the podcast out but it is a good problem to have – a full time job to work around. I also hit on apps and Windows Phone again because it always seems to be an issue and also mention the breaking news of upload file size limitations being removed for Microsoft’s OneDrive cloud storage. Of course the normal collection of tech news and other items fill up the rest of the show. Until next time enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
