Darren, John, and myself sit down to finally discuss the new hardware announced by the Surface Team. This episode is jam packed with Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2. I’ll update you just a little bit about #meetup2013 and we will get right to the news! I’ll also embarrassingly stumble and blurt out a secret about seeing the Surface 2 hardware. It’s pretty obvious I try to move on quickly but I’m leaving it in for posterity! Also, Surface MVP news at the end of the show. Enjoy, and see you in the forums!
