Windows Blue Scheduled for June Release
By Richard Hay for Windows Observer
We then talk about several different tech subjects including a recent survey completed by Microsoft about mobile manners, RTM of the Windows Phone App for desktops (yes that is a confusing name), new updates on four of Microsoft’s Dynamic RSS themes, the background into the design of the Xbox One and a great Q&A with Brent Spiner from Start Trek about tech and other things from GeekWire.
The last three stories we discuss before diving headfirst into Windows 8.1 relate to Steven Sinofsky’s appearance at D11 and updates relating to sales numbers of the Office 2013 suite and Office 365 subscriptions.
At this point we break open the posts about the official announcements concerning the upcoming Windows Blue aka Windows 8.1 update that is expected to be released for preview on 26 June 2013.
As a new experiment on this show I am going to jump into the comments section of the official Microsoft blog post about these announced changes and respond to several of them on the show.
