  • Lol Zac quit teasing us!
  • "Your fault for being a beta tester." What Daniel essentially said. Well who's gonna test it if the users don't? MS certainly isn't.
  • They are no longer serious about the OS to be fair. The Creators Update seems worse than the Anniversary Update. I keep getting the feeling that the WP8.1 experience was way better than this right now.
    In addition that shyte build that was released this week was not a beta build, none of us signed up for alpha software.
    These guys shouldn't take the mocking too far.
  • He is not wrong though. There is a reason why this MS doesn't advice you to do this on your primary advice and why this kills your warranty.
  • Well Microsoft has been telling people to join Insider at every keynote. And builds DO NOT kill your warranty.
  • As I get told at my job all the time... "This is what you signed up for".
  • Broken build caused my Lumia 830 to loop through the Nokia logo over and over ♻
  • yeah iot was not a mobile buid. windows device recovery tool to get back to working
  • Dan and Zac you guys pulled a 10/10 poker face. Read between lines and pay attention to what they were saying in the podcast, interesting times ahead.
  • How many times guys, this was not constrained to users on the insider programme. My wife was on the consumer build of the creators update and yet she also got this update that bricked her phone!
  • Something fishy is going on in Microsoft... Accidental build releases, Trademark of the 'S' Logo, Direct reality rumors of a surface phone... I think internally Microsoft is going through something...😁😁😁😁
