Darren and I spend a couple of minutes on the Chromecast but we really dive deep on a lot of news. We skipped last week so we have a ton to go over on this show. It’s a marathon!We tear down everything. SkyDrive, Surface RT and the writedown, 8.1, laptop shopping, Best Buy, Office Mobile for everything but Windows Phone, a new domain name, the Nokia Lumia 1020 and a whole bunch more. Apps of the week too!
