Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 231 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 231 of Observed.Tech. We start off this show talking about Microsoft’s stock price achievement that happened this past week and how the stock price has doubled since Satya Nadella was named the CEO in February 2014. I then hit on a couple of new tidbits relating to the WannaCry ransomware that ran wild earlier this month and the surprising stats about what versions of Windows were heavily infected by this malware. Of course, this past week was the big Microsoft event in Shanghai and we have all the details about those announcements and a closer look at the new Surface Pro that arrives in a couple of weeks alongside of the new Surface Laptop. In China they will see the Surface Studio, Surface Laptop, and Surface Pro all available on the 15th of June. We have an update about the Windows 10 Creators Update roll out and its expansion to new devices plus a couple of cumulative updates for the Anniversary and Creators Updates for Windows 10. In the Xbox world there were a few new announcements this week including the re-branding of their Beam streaming service to Mixer, the official launch of the Xbox Game Pass, and the list of titles that will be available in the June Games with Gold collection. Spread through the show are tidbits such as new hardware from OEMs, Amazon turning 20, Windows on Git, resources for Microsoft Teams in Education, my graphics and image editing tools, and building trust in this post-truth world. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

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!
