In this week’s show, I catch you up on my formation during a break over the Christmas period and share some insight into two seasons in the Church – Advent and Christmas. The tech side of the show is packed full of news for Windows Insiders and the latest builds in each testing ring along with an indication of how future builds will roll out. Edge Insiders are also closing in on general availability of Edge (Chromium) so we update on multiple items that can help you prepare. Following all the tech news, we discuss the latest space stuff around SpaceX, Boeing, and NASA as 2019 wraps up and 2020 begins. Happy New Year and thanks for listening.

This week I share about my recent office reorganization and the resulting tech purge that it has resulted in as I start to clear out old technology and e-cycle it. We catch up on a slow week for Windows Insiders and discuss the potential release of the first 19H2 bits to testers. Then we discuss COMPUTEX and Microsoft’s interesting announcement about a modern operating system right in the middle of them sharing about new OEM hardware running Windows 10. Of course, spread throughout the show we talk about other things like the changes around the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and why some believe it is dead, tons of updates around apps and services, plus tidbits about gaming, security, and social media. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
