State of the Surface on Surface Geeks 53

It’s the State of the “insert witty noun here” podcast. We’re calling it State of the Surface. This idea popped into our heads about 30 seconds prior to going live. Those ideas usually make the best podcasts! We talk about Surface and how it has fared over the past year and half. We also update our Surface usage and tackle some top news like OneDrive, firmware, apps, and more. Enjoy!
