Outlook for RT, 8.1, and a Podcast App WhineDown

Darren does the Outlook for RT happy dance and we talk some more 8.1.  We have a couple of app recommendations. Darren and the live chat quiz and coach me on e-mail for my new Nokia Lumia 928.  You will certainly hear my frustrations about e-mail and podcast apps but I’m working through it.*  Is the new 8″ Acer W3 a hit or should you wait? Back to arguing over productivity PC like tablet and RT.

* Post show I tried Carboncast, Podcasts!, and iCast, all over again and got some different results. More talk and less “whine” about these apps soon.
