Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 312 #OTP

This week we have our normal collection of updates for Windows Insiders with the latest builds and progress across a couple of development branches for Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge (Chromium).¬†However, I begin with an explanation of the final state of my link curation process to avoid Twitter’s aggressive algorithms plus I get on my soapbox about headlines and misdirection with one privacy related story I read this week. After that it is our normal weekly run down of updates around apps, services, security, hardware, social media, and gaming. At the end of it all I mention a couple of space items that you should be aware of as the next five years are going to be crazy as NASA heads back to the moon! Make sure you listen from start to finish to catch all the headlines.

Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 234 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 234 of Observed.Tech. We start off with an update about builds for this past week for Windows Insiders, one mobile update and nothing for desktops, and some interesting information about the under the hood update/upgrade process for Windows 10. I then discuss another update for unsupported Windows operating systems XP and Vista, how Microsoft is adding even more products to their rapid release cycle of two feature updates per year, and Intel’s concern about Microsoft emulating x86 on devices that will run Windows 10 on ARM so that desktop software will run on these battery efficient devices. I also cover some more Xbox/E3 news, the lifted review embargo for Surface Laptop and Surface Pro hardware, and a handful of interesting articles about various technologies. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed.Tech PODCAST Episode 219 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 219 of Observed.Tech. In this week’s show we start off by talking about an out of band security update for Flash on Windows after the normal Patch Tuesday updates were delayed last week however, we also discuss whether another vulnerability will also be patched before next months updates are issued on 14 March 2017. I share with you my experience in signing up friends to use my Outlook.com premium service for their own unique email address on my custom domain which was a lot easier than getting everything setup in the first place. We also talk about the slow trickle of Microsoft Edge extensions, a new email search utility for Outlook and Gmail accounts, and how HoloLens is helping a medical technology company design operating rooms for hospitals. There is plenty to discuss about Windows 10 as well including confirmation of Redstone 3, a lack of new builds over the last two weeks, and concerns about privacy in the EU getting some attention despite the efforts Microsoft has made to be more transparent in this area. As always there are other tidbits scattered throughout the show including Gmail and Blizzard dropping support for Windows XP and Vista, a new Windows 10 bug tracker for developers, using an Outlook calendar with Alexa, Microsoft’s call for a Digital Geneva Convention, and whether Windows Phone/Mobile is dead. Enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
