Faith, Tech, and Space (Episode 11)

It has been just two weeks since our last show, but still a long list of news across the spectrum to discuss including changes to the Windows Insider Program and the latest with the testing and roll out of the new Microsoft Edge. We start off with one of two big stories, the end of physical Microsoft Stores. From the faith side we catch up on local, online class activity plus share about the Ten Commandments of Catholic Twitter and a young man named Carlos Acutis who is about the be beatified in Church. On the tech front, we cover updates around Windows and Edge Insider programs, a new Windows File Recovery app, and the latest from Apple, Google, Pi-Hole, and AdGuard Home. Then we talk about the other big story – the impending shutdown of Microsoft Mixer. In space related news a new company plans orbital rocket launches, a SpaceX Starlink beta, SpaceX launch delays, and Boeing’s shuffle in its various space divisions. Finally, I close out with a note about something called Doomscrolling and why you should avoid it.

This week we delayed recording the show until after Microsoft’s big Xbox E3 Media Briefing was held yesterday afternoon. So this show has a lot of stuff related to those announcements from Los Angeles, That gets us caught up with the new game pass options for both console and PC, upcoming games, hardware, and streaming technology plus lots of other gaming related items such as project Scarlett and Project xCloud.

This week I share about my recent office reorganization and the resulting tech purge that it has resulted in as I start to clear out old technology and e-cycle it. We catch up on a slow week for Windows Insiders and discuss the potential release of the first 19H2 bits to testers. Then we discuss COMPUTEX and Microsoft’s interesting announcement about a modern operating system right in the middle of them sharing about new OEM hardware running Windows 10. Of course, spread throughout the show we talk about other things like the changes around the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and why some believe it is dead, tons of updates around apps and services, plus tidbits about gaming, security, and social media. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!

Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 268 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 268 of Observed Tech. This is a Sunday evening episode of the show because I held off on recording until after Microsoft’s Big Xbox E3 Briefing that was held this afternoon from California on the eve of E3. It was a busy 90 minutes with 52 games shown including multiple world premiere’s and console based exclusives. We even heard about machine learning, artificial intelligence, and the cloud and how all of those technologies are improving the Microsoft gaming experience. However, this show is not all fun and games. We also talk about the latest Redstone 5 builds for Windows 10, reaction to the companies GitHub acquisition, and all the new hardware that was announced at COMPUTEX this past week. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
