Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 246 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 246 of Observed Tech. In this show we talk about Satya Nadella and his leadership at Microsoft as CEO on the even of Ignite and the release of his new book Hit Refresh which will come out on 26 September. We also discuss the upcoming availability of hardware and software to finally make the Windows Mixed Reality Portal available on the Fall Creators Update which is scheduled to be released in just a few weeks. Speaking of the Fall Creators Update, there was plenty of action this week in the Redstone 3 testing arena as Microsoft speeds up the pace of new builds to get ready for this updates release on 17 October 2017. This week we had three new builds, a new build designated for Slow Ring and even a new Slow Ring build for Windows 10 Mobile. Towards the end we talk about the crazy world of Trojans and security concerns when someone gets malicious code into your software and uses your own digital certificates to validate it as part of the code. Of course, there is other news relating to apps and services from Microsoft for Windows 10 and plenty of other tidbits across a wide range of tech subjects throughout the show so be sure to listen all the way until the end. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 243 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 243 of Observed Tech. It has taken two weeks to get this episode recorded so it is a mixture of the stuff I had previously earmarked for last week combined with new items from the past week. There is a lot of Windows 10 news – even more than normal – as we finally learn the launch date for the upcoming Windows 10 Fall Creators Update from Microsoft at IFA 2017. I also walk you through all of the testing build activity for Redstone 3 and 4 over the last two weeks. It is almost enough to fill its own episode of the show. Speaking of IFA 2017 – there was a lot of news on the hardware side of things for Windows 10 so we walk through those announcements as well. We even have a good collection of Xbox related news for you in this show. Of course, there is other news relating to apps and services from Microsoft for Windows 10 and plenty of other tidbits across a wide range of tech subjects throughout the show so be sure to listen all the way until the end. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 242 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 242 of Observed Tech. We had our second straight week of no new Windows Insider Builds for PCs on the Fast Ring but we get to hear from the Insider team at Microsoft about what was behind those decisions to not flight builds. It is some interesting insight. However, before I talk about that and the other news of the week, I spend the first part of the episode talking about treating each other well and remembering the person on the other side of that Twitter handle is just as human as we are and deserves courtesy, civility, and respect.  We may not always agree with a direction taken by a company like Microsoft but the folks who are the face of the company on social media do not deserve to receive the full measure of our disagreement, frustration, and ridicule. Of course, there is other news relating to apps and services from Microsoft for Windows 10 and plenty of other tidbits across a wide range of tech subjects throughout the show so be sure to listen all the way until the end. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
