Welcome to another episode of the WinBeta Podcast. Each week we discuss the top Microsoft related news. This week we cover the RTM build of Windows 10, poll results on if people will be upgrading, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella answering questions about Windows Phones, premium Lumias being on the way and more.
We also had a special guest this week, Ben Rudolph. You may also recognize him from his work for Microsoft. He discussed how his app “Straw” came to be, what it offers as a polling platform, and where it’s headed in the future. You can find download links for it on Windows Phone, Android, and iOS below.
We broadcast each week live on YouTube at 3PM EDT and then post the video (shown above) and audio (shown below). You can also listen to us on iTunes, the Windows podcast app, TuneIn, and watch us on YouTube.
Whether you’re looking for good discussion and insight on Windows news, or just a good time with some guys who love tech, you’ll enjoy the podcast. During the full episodes of the show we discuss the Windows news of the week and then after each week’s episode recording we have a general discussion and Q&A with our viewers. If you can’t join us live, you can share your thoughts in the comments, tweet us at @ZacB_ and @Sean_Michael_UK and vote in our weekly polls.
