Welcome to Episode 137. Has it really been nearly a month since my last show? As I was recording the podcast and mentioning missing a couple of shows I thought it had been about three weeks but Episode 136 was back on 25 July. No wonder it felt so good to be back in front of the mike talking to you about tech stuff! The unintended hiatus, which I explained on the show, also resulted in me taking a different approach to my list of items to talk about. You will find the volume of items is greatly reduced and I spent much more time on each area/story. I even strayed off while watching Twitter and discussed some breaking news stuff as well. Let me know what you think of the re-focusing of the shows format. Amongst the things discussed on the show Stopping Facebook's automatic video playing, Microsoft as the challenger, Layoffs at Microsoft, 4th Quarter FY14 Microsoft Earnings report, Nokia acquisitions help and hurt on the big picture at Microsoft, Microsoft outselling Apple last quarter in the phone market, Lumia 530 announcement and Lumia 930 reviews, No Jen Taylor voiced Cortana outside of the US, Tracking the Cyan Windows Phone 8.1 Update, Xbox One/360 console sales, Surface Mini was shelved, What One Windows really means, Streamlining Xbox Music & Video and confirmation they are here to stay from Joe Belfiore, Cloud Booms at Microsoft, Office 365 subscriptions at 5.6 million now, OneDrive storage bumps for Office 365 subscribers and free users, Updated iOS and Windows Phone apps for OneDrive, Windows 8.1 update for OneDrive, Microsoft announces one big annual tradeshow, Microsoft bolsters consumer channels by grabbing Best Buy executive, Amazon Fire disappoints most reviewers, Microsoft brings Skype to Amazon Fire phone, Amazon Prime Music expands collection, YouTube head of music quits, Microsoft being sued by Nevada tech firm concerning patent licensing, Bing cast search tip, Free vs Paid vs Subscriptions when it comes to 3rd party apps, Tweetium arrives on Windows Phone, Official Microsoft Twitter account list and @HiddenCash on Twitter. Until next time enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
