Welcome back to the Neowin Podcast, the show where Rich Woods and João Carrasqueira talk about all the big news from the past week. After a short break, we're back with episode 13 of the show to talk about more tech news, and we're moving to a bi-weekly release schedule.
This week, Microsoft finally launched the Beta channel for the Edge Insider program, after over four months of testing in the Canary and Dev channels. Speaking of which, the Canary channel now supports the Collections feature announced back at Build. Meanwhile, Google is done naming Android versions after desserts and revealed Android 10. On the hardware side of things, Intel has launched new 10th generation processors based on the 14nm architecture, and OEMs have already announced new devices with the new CPUs.
