Episode 195: Windows 365, WhatsApp Everywhere & Bloodless Blood Testing

Welcome to Double Tap Canada. It’s a tech show, honestly! This week’s episode was recorded a little earlier than usual due to Shaun’s rather selfish request to take a week off. So, if Apple releases their smart glasses this week and we don’t mention it, you know who to blame.

The show kicks off with a reprimand from a listener regarding our big tech discussion last week. Can Marc justify his stance on the restriction of big tech companies? It’s then on to tech news, including good news for those of you who don’t have the time to read a book in one sitting, a new case for the Apple TV Siri remote that may stop you from losing it, and how WhatsApp are testing the ability to use its service on multiple devices. However, the one news story that has got us most excited this week is the announcement of Windows 365. Of course, we are full of questions such as, what is it, how does it work and, most importantly, is it accessible? To help answer these questions we are joined by Jason Brommet, Head of Modern Work & Security at Microsoft Canada. He’ll be telling us all about this exciting new service. Or, at least he’ll try to if Marc and Steven stop talking for one second.

The show wraps up with talk of blood glucose monitoring without the need to draw blood, and the possibility of this technology being built in to a smart watch. Also, Steven has just discovered NVDA and he’s loving it…
