We're back with another exciting episode of the Windows Central Podcast, and this week Daniel Rubino and Zac Bowden are here with a little bit of chat about our web site's new logo, then dive deep into the future of Windows 10 live tiles and recent questions from listeners about Windows Lite and plans for always connected devices.
Cortana is getting smarter with new 'scenes' and 'rules' for smart home setups. This leads into an epic Dan rant about the relative usefulness of all digital voice assistants. In short, he lives the smart home dream, but he still doesn't get all the fuss.
Finally, Microsoft has announced new hardware configurations for the education market. Join Us!
