I’m back, I’m tired and need a vacation due to my vacation! I’m also trying to keep Darren and John in line by quizzing them on what happened at Build. Again, we go deep into Windows Phone and Surface. No mention of Surface at Build so I ask what would you buy in the future?
Did you update your 8.1? We did and discuss it. Plenty to talk about this week. Episode 62 is YouTube only and can be found here. My thanks to John and Darren for filling in last week.
