#86: OS Blowout, Skype Woes, New Nexi, and WANBox

We enjoy Windows 8.1’s fixes and discuss what the update means in terms of Microsoft’s (surprisingly functional) positioning of Windows across the tablet and PC market. We run down Steam OS and consider its potential in the connected home. We round up some of the most recent OS X Mavericks troubles. We study the specs and reviews of the new Nexus 5, revisiting our thoughts about jumping between the Google and Apple walled gardens. We take a look at the most recent Skype announcements — critical to both podcasters and small businesses. And we walk you through a slick file-transfer solution we developed to push production files painlessly between offices (and countries).

    Where is the link to the direct download of the podcast?

      Whoops — actually Juan pointed this out in early testing, but it somehow got dropped from my to-do list. The link is available on all other views, and I’ll add it to this one when I get a chance. :)

    Looks like any of the blue # buttons will take you to a page with the direct download page.
