We're back with another exciting episode of the Windows Central Podcast! This week, Daniel Rubino and Zac Bowden talk about the week's news in the Windows universe, including the latest build of Redstone 5, and trying to parse the actual meaning of 'Always Connected PC'. They also speculate on the age old privacy question — Who is 'they'? And, apropos of nothing, Dan seems to know an awful lot about how super-criminals use computers. Finally, Dan and Zac discuss the future for UWP apps on Windows 10 and the Lenovo Thunderbolt 3 Graphics Dock. Join us!

  • Pls share how good UI of Win phone 7 was not brought to W10M
  • Is the Surface Go is an always connected PC? That is, does it supports eSims?
  • The current version is using an intel chip, so no without a dedicated LTE modem. However, the Surface go with LTE is due to be released later this year - which will be using a dedicated LTE modem.
  • Can you please advise the command to remove windows media player on win 10. Thanks.
  • Use the forums not the comments section in a article.
  • I listened to your waxing lyrical about always connected PCs with a mixture of bemusement and amusement. You and Microsoft seem to be about the only people in the world why think that there is anything new about this. My ThinkPad years ago came with a SIM slot. As did my Samsung Slate. My ipad has been always connected with a SIM for yonks. So I can use OneDrive, OneNote etc. Just fine. Before that I had a dongle with a SIM fit my PC. Only the Microsoft devices seem to be coming late to a party that has been going on for a very long time. Pretending it is new. As indeed, in a hilariously ridiculous way you were in supporting them and a paper which wraps old news as new.
