Observed Tech PODCAST Episode 198 #OTP

Welcome to Episode 198 of Observed Tech. This week we lock in our plans for a mid-week recording of the show instead of Monday mornings so that we can bring you more of the latest news from the first couple of days in a new week. It turns out this week was made for this plan because we had big acquisition news from Microsoft first thing Monday morning when they announced their $26.2 billion dollar purchase of LinkedIn. Then, within just a few hours, we had the Xbox E3 Briefing where we heard about new hardware (Xbox One S and Project Scorpio) and a great gaming lineup including one of my favorites Forza Horizon 3. About 30 minutes after Microsoft got started at E3, Apple took to the stage for their annual WWDC Keynote in San Francisco to unveil updates across their line of OS’s. Including in these announcements was the name change for their desktop operating system from OS X to macOS. In addition to a collection of links out to those areas I share app news on the Windows platform for those arriving and those departing plus plenty of information about the Windows 10 Anniversary Update and where everything stands as we get nearer to the expected release of Microsoft next major Windows 10 Update in July. I give you some hands on with new UI changes for Cortana, the latest builds of Windows 10 in the Redstone development branch and the greater control admins will have over key areas of the Anniversary Update. As always, you can expect plenty of other tidbits throughout the episode. Enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
