Faith, Tech, and Space (Episode 14)

There is plenty of news across our three-fold spectrum for this episode. I wrap up details about the PC build I recently completed and provide some schedule updates for my continued diaconate formation as we prepare for year two. In tech, new builds across the board for Windows and Edge Insiders, headlines from Microsoft, Apple (and Epic Games & WordPress), and Google among many others. In gaming news, there has been a run on joysticks and yokes thanks to the successful release of Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, and confirmation of the Xbox Series S console thanks to a controller leak. In space there is news from NASA, ULA, and SpaceX as they continue to launch rockets despite the pandemic impacting operations. I close with an upcoming drama from Netflix on the human toll during a manned mission to Mars and Amazon’s potential plan to take over empty stores at malls to help with product distribution.

Welcome to Episode 239 of Observed Tech. This week there is a bunch of Windows 10 news around the Creators Update, the upcoming Fall Creators Update, and even the feature update that is expected in the Spring of 2018. I finally got to install and try out Windows 10 S this past week to begin trying out the “app only life”. I started by doing a clean install on a Lenovo Miix-720 and getting it all setup including hardware drivers and apps including Office 365 from the Windows Store. The big challenge is installing drivers that are embedded within executable files but there is a work around and I share the details. Of course, spread throughout the show are plenty of other tidbits across a wide range of tech subjects so be sure to listen all the way until the end.
