Big Week of News on Surface Geeks 31

A huge week of news for Microsoft and partners. Nokia releases the Lumia 1020 and we prognosticate a little about the camera with a phone attached.  Darren goes off with the “Swing and a Miss” theory about Microsoft and I put on my backup hat and tell you about a new cloud backup service I’m using.  It also has WP8 and RT apps!

Cloud Backup as low as $50 for lifetime backups
