Is iOS7 as good as Windows Phone, live 928 Case testing, and the xBox One all on Surface Geeks 28

Case tests on the Lumia 928, literally!  Siri on iOS7 fails live on camera and why doesn’t explorer have tabs?  Richard Hay is back with Darren Cohen and we go over all the latest for you in Surface Geeks 29.

Would you like to see the cases and everything else on video? The YouTube is right here.

 Apps of the Week

TeamViewer for remote control on Windows Phone 8 (from the forum):

Insider.  Tipped from Kyle who you know did a few shows here at Surface Geeks.

Not Windows Phone Insider, which is a different app.

My two Podcast consumption apps:

Carbon Cast


I’ll come back around to the other apps soon.  They all have great features and a podcast player app is a very personal decision.  These two apps may not be for you but I like what the developers have done so far and in my opinion these two devs have set themselves up for the best apps with future updates.
