i don't have a picture of taking the first buy it and talking and taking the last buy in md play come away from the plate and feed the crew,
let's turn on the display okay so i,
we've got before we go any further we got a feature of the week we don't always feature that we don't even have a sound bite feature the week need to work on that,
start anna know we don't play with cortana anymore but feature of the week yes how windows ten disconnects USB storage device.
So this is for people who are obsessive compulsive but disconnecting the devices manually will this break up,
the air is what they called performance mode or other.
[4:34] Quick quick probably distracted by something time but just what i do is what you do however that actually can be crafted by there has had that happen.
so quick mode that's what's the most you moving to if i can move anytime but data can be collected also performance status of right now the default is performance mode means cashing,
its prefect training and using other resources try to give you a faster experience however if you remove it,
things me happy when did this get to the cashed.
Have driver profile do not switching it so that it the default is,
quick move because most people don't do the safe act like ion ee how many tasks u saying that really changed how i operate search engines the default thats correct what most people don't change default now if you want to hear power three can go in and change that,
yeah i need extra speed or if it's a device that i got a external usb drive here that i have connected it's connected almost all the time so i leave at on performance rather than on.
Remove anything else.
[5:50] New story of the week are we have lots and lots of news this week we've been broken up into.
What's up what's the date again add and lots of engineers since april eighth five days and forty.
Microsoft has released a beta and with chromium what is that mean what might explain this to,
this message is.
Well anybody that are less yes i would say basic with the combination of edge and chrome,
so the red dancing the part underneath.
Underneath the menus and the tabs all that will be it's actually not necessarily chrome itll be but chromium chromium open source and,
google is the biggest contributor to the base the chrome browser on the chrome and rendering engine however it's not exactly the same.
How much to explain this to someone who doesn't feel attacked.
[7:04] Lol well they know that you had to load chrome and i guess i'll just call,
and the spartan was not as compatible with websites,
roman reason for that it wasn't is commonly sold developers atlanta test on web browser,
what is the test on lgmr one thing contest on chrome anything a test on to,
and wasn't the number two browser either so the world testing on that other testing in safari there testing another and eventually made test on edge and want to report a problem right now and weather not edge what is the problem,
dim the day people using it had issues and i have all kinds of issues using edge to connect to microsoft,
what does this mean for the average is it doing today what ever to stop playing the want you to use edge close chrome.
[8:04] Currently movie re load it with respect to system or they can use and anyone even care people that work
voting ends with navy values as the default browser because can use the same rendering engine but the will be able to integrate with microsoft and any services still be able to integrate with being more cats by default the search engine ads because i think,
here is a couple things at edge not the beta that were using today but that def leave.
[8:35] The previous version of ge still does better than previous email to current groceries in touch much better than brett it also thinking much better than trump.
Does indian could a few things that does excel at any of microsoft can bring that as well as other things to it uh,
that's a plus what does that mean those things those features well then slow through chrome.
Perhaps it microsoft microsoft makes a party of kobe or not depends on how the owl and how other people adopted this to three other things,
add supports streaming in four k.
[9:22] From it anything or just from netflix i want to contact the kodak based issue is when the cortex the jesus vs the code that chrome is so right now it's browser goes just really browser able to stream netflix in four k,
Remind us know what actions podcast this could be a serious problem for some for listeners that often will pick up where did the week and then looks like.
Rights of microsoft spent the time with this the other thing today is i added a chrome extension so it felt when you load the data,
we'll link would like to get everyone around it you go to the microsoft store to get your extensions.
You can also go to the chrome web store and load chrome extensions i did that today that worked very nicely.
[10:15] Another little bit a news about microsoft and chrome es file explorer version of explorers going to support multiple tabs each withdrawl process much the same way chrome does.
[10:32] So you can copy multiple files at the same time searching multiple locations all copies to eat with red.
Alright so that's it for engineers what was inside you get anything you will talk about.
What is the your phone app you can now if you have the exact charger i can dial to marry nephew android phone on your desktop,
so i've been using the your phone app but with mixed results doesn't like having it repaired to two different laptops no no no light from phone laptop,
add but nevertheless it doesn't seem to be a bit more stable now that one of the options option to select your photos option to do text messages from here,
from your laptop and then option three would be actually to see the screen and electronics but people are so used to people sitting at the desk to three hundred for really large monitors and the ivory over the phone.
Does the fact that you can actually get the phone right on your screen will i do that all the time i sent you text messages or your phone app then i said to some i can type much faster they use that somehow still having trouble typing on my galaxy s ten
right steven adopted two yeah is quite that works OK.
Efficiency of people actually once would use that she can access facebook on your phone so you think works not looking at it.
[12:01] Right ugh more insider been prescribed for me yeah more insider news.
[12:13] So this is for home based small business usage right were talking but here yeah i wasn't everybody but yes so it starts with nineteen h one hundred nineteen,
first off it still what is the building still nineteen oh three beds one to b two as the may twenty nineteen update right,
turn light of course in binary will not save it the same bill that was released in march just going to more testing right before its available so.
Features are will the ability to delay,
so first cumulative updates you can delay seven eight seven to thirty five days and home you just got to thirty five days that's right thirty five days and then eventually build delayed the build.
So skip over nineteen eighty one.
Right and you don't have to infor about this long as it is supported i'm not really a fan of that.
Pens umm if you are using eighteen nine in las vegas.
You maybe a fan of it sure sure i can you know there are some people have some of that doesn't work in their system are the some hardware doesn't work in they don't upgrade for eighteen months and then hopefully by then you'll be working.
[13:35] Ok so can be a big demand for people other than corporate not want food,
no i think it's more just people always complains of one less thing for them to clean about and get on with it,
so it's been a wider not moving windows ten asus it was just another reason that the user to not gonna understand will talk more but then later suggested that you're here,
nothing lol people a lot of people complaining local small businesses that they don't have the manpower etc will talk more but i just wanted to get actually just pop up and say do you want to sell this like yes or no,
supposed to be on we want to review computer.
[14:15] Right ok so now onto surface news,
i'm trying so that's a bunch of new configuration for the surface laptop two and the surface pro so summary of things like different configurations setter and need generation,
processor and the surface laptop to write,
this is more we're the surface will need to share some info with you some of these devices will be available in north america,

the same thing that any other vendor would do any one here too much about labels dollar hp

can we talk about it is what organizations and individuals never paid.
Where is jesse when i got my wife's laptop that was,
incredibly behind on most everything you think it will be automatically updated why is that what you think that.
Because i looked at the screen that what's up what did you do that shit says one update right but firmware update are really important for compatibility but also for security and performance for sustainability,
so why don't people do it.
[16:48] The freight difference there free well that's good news then but that individuals but what about enterprises to have your DOS and does it stop when will be good.
I want to do with the hard way to be less insecure than i spend more time doing what is the ability last performance is compatibility and security do,
so many organizations so many organizations would just be better than just automatically update everything and just know no control,
all the fancy prom theme so you show notes i listed all the different from your upgrades that are available just in the last month,

That's marked get it in binary to decimal and this is automated reality not mixed reality vr ui VR unless included.
Right so this is what is a hole in disc based on the hardware for gaming at things like that for use with steam and whatnot but it's one step towards that.
Still not number one player number one player is your facebook seven percent.
And why is that thirty nine percent.
Microsoft and help papa let's make reviews about why as well we can talk about that,
