Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 259 #OTP

Welcome to episode 259 of Observed Tech. It has been a while – much too long – but travel and being sick just crippled any extracurricular activity for me over the last month since our last show however, as always we are back behind the microphone and ready to catch up with everyone. We begin that catching up process by talking about the current status of the Windows 10 Redstone 4 feature update, which by the way still does not have a marketing name, that is in its final days of development before it will be released next month by Microsoft. There are plenty of builds to talk about in all of the Windows Insiders rings plus what features have been added at this stage for testing. I also share how my bare metal testing has expanded in these last couple of weeks as the final testing builds become more and more stable. There has also been progress in the Redstone 5 Skip Ahead ring so we detail those new builds that are the basis for the sixth feature update for Windows 10 that is expected this fall. Of course, there are other news headlines throughout the show including a couple of Windows Server releases, a couple of new apps, and insight on some of the first hands on reviews of Windows 10 on ARM so be sure to listen all the way until the end and not miss anything. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 258 #OTP

Welcome to episode 258 of Observed Tech. This week I share my initial impressions of the Surface Book 2 which arrived earlier this week for my hands on experience. I include a few comparisons to the OG Surface Book that I have been using for the last three years. Then we get to talk about Qualcomm, Microsoft, and Always Connected PCs that will be in consumers hands very soon beginning with the HP Envy x2 that may ship in about two weeks. Of course, we update the progress of Windows 10 Redstone 4 as Microsoft focuses on stabilizing the fifth feature update for release in March/April and then its follow on development branch – Redstone 5 – which will be the sixth feature update for Windows 10. That is expected to land in the September/October time frame. We then dive into news items about Andromeda, Microsoft Edge, Progressive Web Apps (PWAs), and Bill Gates being a guest star on the Big Bang Theory in March. Of course, there are other news headlines throughout the show so be sure to listen all the way until the end and not miss anything. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 257 #OTP

Welcome to episode 257 of Observed Tech. After a 24 hour delay due to an SSL certificate that had not been updated here we are with this show where we talk about the countdown to the release of the fifth feature update for Windows 10, currently know by its development code name of Redstone 4, and what the schedule might look like for its upcoming release. I also cover the latest Windows Insider builds and how Microsoft has once again started to push Skip Ahead builds in preparation for Redstone 5 development that is starting for the next feature update expected later this year. I then jump in and talk about the reports of various apps with the term Windows in their title being asked to make a change to stay in the Microsoft Store and the crazy pace of commercial upgrades from Windows 7 to Windows 10 since the beginning of this year. There have been several new items for developers including a new SDK, Visual Studio Preview release, and another Windows Developer Community Standup later this week. Then I talk about a new experimental program that ties certain groups of Insiders into Cohorts to test key areas of Windows 10 and the list of limitations for Windows 10 on ARM that may have been inadvertently released this past week. Of course, there are other news headlines throughout the show including an easy way to track Elon Musk’s Tesla Roadster out there in space so be sure to listen all the way until the end and not miss anything. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
