Featured in the Dutch ITbende podcast today (again)
Microsoft has made Windows 8 available to everyone, wanting to deploy and/or test drive it. Since, without this news, it’s a slow news week, Martin Broerse has, once again, invited me to join his ITbende podcast this morning.
I joined for the first 30 minutes of the 168th ITbende podcast and chatted with Martin Broerse and Bart van Klaveren on Windows 8 and Office 2013.
Topics in this half hour included:
- The most impressive new feature (to me) in Windows 8 (0m57)
- The 17th birthday of Internet Explorer (2m55) and the Do Not Track feature in the Windows 8 Express Settings and the implications of both the Dutch and UK cookie laws (3m10)
- The look and feel of the Office 2013 Customer Preview on Windows 8 in the context of the Metro design principles (8m01)
- Skydrive and Outlook.com as previews of Office 365 and its Outlook Web App, Office Web Apps and SharePoint (9m53)

- How tablets create rude people with curt answers in e-mail (12m33)

- H.264 as the cornerstone of RemoteFX for WAN and how H.265 might bring even more advantages. (24m04)
