Hello everybody I’m David Smith and I’m Colin Smith and together we are the surface Smith welcome to the universal windows podcast episode 93 and that’s four in a row. Ever coming up to. [0:32] Podcast right we have something special for your episode one hundred thirty but is idea what that should be let us know in hey guys what about the word of the week thank you we definitely word of the week David why don’t you explain what the word of the week is and I’ll come up with one but it’s a drinking game and, you see use car coming to pick the word of the week but she got so confused that we now just look it up ourselves if you hear us use the word, you should have a drink of your favorite beverage so these are words that were going to say correct. Perhaps that are sometimes it’s worth we don’t say that’s just the way it is. Nc okay alright so. Now that what I was told her what the word of the week is let’s move on to what we call the feature that we could go to that feature not future. What is the feature that week it’s called timeline and it doesn’t tell you the future, but it tells you the past so timeline is existed I think for, twenty two versions of windows ten not including the recently not am released eight tonight and if you’re a tablet or some sort of test three you swipe in from the last. [1:51] And lo and behold on the right hand side it says now yes and then at the bottom of mine that says October 7th. Nbc can scroll down and i said i was looking for something i remember about two weeks ago i a and then it pops up your searches it pops up documents you’ve opened so. On November 7th second I, went to Yahoo finance I was on Yammer ashleymadison I was on travel website so, and now it says cr112 activities, Evans clock set from all my computer so even if I was using it on another computer with my Microsoft account it would consolidate this elevating private browsing. [2:44] No I don’t see any of those here okay so until this is this is not like your here’s what it says what time lover is Club. Girl lovers club my tennis barbeque and bar smoking good purchase so we did go there that they actually there, and it says I searched that for my Surface Book 2, October 31st I was in Edge so you know what gives you a bit information about where you did, so save it if you don’t have a touchscreen how to get access to this oh just the windows kids like Windows tab. Okay that window stop Windows tab. [3:34] Oh there it is that stuff can be right it’s been there for a long time and yet it in the future you see it. Very very cool and also let you go between your virtual desktops. Me that before the video on that trip we can do to get my stay still hate the fact that you can’t name virtual to. Kiss very confusing you don’t know which ones which right to service number I never use it okay I would use it more if I could name them all right so that’s a great feature the week David thank you very much. New story of the week year old typewriter sound effect. What what’s that it wouldn’t i’mma telex machine in the actually wouldn’t of been someone typing oh stop news of the week i can start that off, this headline is to brothers steel two hundred thousand dollars worth of lap top for microsoft i think it was an inside job he thinks up those building eighty-eight okay so it, what does laptops directly surface devices so these are two guys Brothers with that one of them works at Microsoft and the other one’s a contractor so they both had access and they caught them on video. [4:55] So this is been be for my for a long time with surface devices what’s that there’s no. Wouldn’t what anyway bulbs are lots of your phone would be some phone costs more than surfaces church care it would be. I gotta tell him okay who could put a hole in there and then the people still would’ve after thousand offices devices that use woodhead. Go little further well these were already in boxes all these are brand-new Redbox. [5:40] That’s not like the great maple syrup Heist or anything but but how stupid do you need to be. You to walk in such a bad guy jim and take about stuff and shopping cart with his cameras around. It’s like when you hear an Uber driver being caught doing something that’s like. Like that job is the most watch job in the world electronically you can’t get away with anything only two hundred thousand dollars worth yeah what are you gonna sell that for on the block Market SF block surfaces but that’s true but if you’re lucky to find them they got the serial number is documented everything. [6:19] Yeah, harry will match it was two thousand dollars worth of wood does photo booths there be transferred tracks go about day after day after day i’d tell they finally filled up enough for two thousand dollars in, well that would probably be every single Windows phone ever made all right so that was my first new stories that’ll be at night light note to start things off with that you’ve got one David luck for us. Because we’re not the brothers unbeknownst to us a couple people have built vertical. Surface docking stations so what this does that connects to the back of your monitor through the four little screws in there the Visa can actually probably so whatever, and then basically you would connect your, your surface beside your monitor make your monitor little bit why there and that’s the sign to work with the docking station for microsoft so you can act. And, he just drop it in beside your monitor so why do we put the video of that into the show note looks like an interesting option because you can use touch screen and Magic basically expand the real estate and you have it there charging use a screen cuz like look at my Surface right now what am I doing, you’re sending you speak tounge. To spare if you knowingly is added them but not some people use the surface keyboard when they’re at the desk so for those people not really a great idea why would you use your surface keyboard if you didn’t have to. [7:47] Mr. secondaries computer, sure but I think it’s a great idea if people who are just going to do what you do which is fold up your surface and use an external keyboard and mouse wine I have the display play available and underneath your monitors, this is really great way to see how much are these things seventy five us. I think we should see if we get a review that’s awesome alright next news item. Underwater data centers are the future so Microsoft has, tried they did an experiment the off the coast of the US they built a small underwater Datacenter but they got their first production one now. Off the coast of Scotland, how is production production off the coast of Scotland it’s connected to the grid and connected to the to. Fuck fuck fuck fuck. Multiple reasons what most people that live in urban centers live near a body of water gas sizzles bath fast, number of people large cities make Boston urla Seattle San Francisco. Yes to survival Las Vegas have a problem the anomaly. [9:16] Lake Mead is not far that’s yes for that man-made water so well that wouldn’t work then with it. Damn right Lake Mead is made by the Hoover Dam Golf Course. The idea is people are close to water real estate is very expensive if you want surface area. [9:36] Land and you gotta typically then bring in all kinds of infrastructure like power roads internet all that to the new data center of. So I put him under water he can be close to the population of you want to drag your infrastructure is far out of sight there, spell below the surface of the water so cooling is easier cuz I have a lot of water into the water ocean temperatures can go out but you don’t whatever, that’s the future so it wouldn’t would it save them energy. Well yes and now it says manage because there’s less cooler particular disused it’s wonderfully spend energy on moving the heat out yes of the also dc, also able to bill them very very quickly than ninety days to build them, to get them up and running very quickly so there’s that the other PC is there closer to the population Center so less. Infrastructure to build some energy-saving and I don’t know if lot of people no data centers are. [10:47] Yeah yeah you’re not buying that individual server and racquet it anymore now I guess this would be a little bit more difficult we need to upgrade or replace part of the equipment but. Sea monkeys are for oh okay. [11:03] Awesome alright so that’s a great new story and what’s your next Microsoft ignite tour so as, we all know or you’re not allowed to listen to the podcast Microsoft ignite was this year it was in Orlando that was 5 days of fun and frolicking, call no I did not go to, the, January 10th and 11th so let’s go let’s go. Taking Leafs game. Oh that would be so yes anybody that’s going to be going to ignite Toronto. [11:55] That’s not a request not lighting Toronto on fire at the event called igniting Toronto let us know us email us at cetera all that information at the end of the show how to reach us and maybe we can have a little meet up when we get together see if we can do something do our podcast there whatever with the inside of him let’s try to do that. Okay that’s that’s great babysallright. Last news story as you know Office 365 always adding new features and Lester the Second Story all right so. And coming this month in Office 365 bunch of new features. [12:38] Get the max of teams update but some the ones there that are going to be more interesting for people that are used to using the standard office suite. PowerPoint and word particular gangster new content creation capabilities so for instance in PowerPoint there is a new PowerPoint designer that uses Ai and natural language processing to convert. Text into curated slight so if you got a document in converted the slides for you have a report if you go through your head into things like that and build you a slide deck to prevent it I do that a lot of my clients 2030 page report, but of course they want me to come into a room and present to their senior Executives Etc going to do that for you. So that’s a interesting it’s also the ability Convert digital ink into text on a slide. [13:30] So I’ve been able to do that in OneNote. Alright. [13:38] And all sorts of other interesting conversion stuff the other interesting thing is coming up transform to web, so allow you to convert word documents it interactive easy to share web page is just a few clicks, so that’s how you write a newsletter or show notes for a podcast yes you can quickly convert that into a web page and make it even interactive and publisher to the web. [14:03] Think about it why do i feel it the ai power point thing the best. [14:10] You do I do I do that’s one of the pills to me is also 3D designer the 3D animations and word and PowerPoint. So that’ll be interesting as well are you in the office I am not enough Insider programs. [14:30] Alright and you got the last word now and use David it’s just that I was noticing that the windows Insider podcast is what we call in the industry pod faded they haven’t approved in the true sense.
