This is one of the very few shows that we've recorded without putting together any host notes. We just share an enjoyable conversation. Miraculously, Surface AIO, Word Flow for iOS, Cerulean Mobile, HP Elite X3, and Microsoft Ignite do manage to work their way into the show. Below are the details. Enjoy!
Vernon reminisces about the Glance and Go podcast episode with Sean Johnson in which he had to re-record an entire episode because he powered off his PC. Hear "Passing The WinPhan Baton" here.
The phrase "Poop in a group" rears its ugly head.
Graphics Interchange Format debate returns. Our polarized opinions of the topic turn to a surprisingly mild, polite, and politically-correct argument.
Somehow we discuss iTunes reviews. Speaking of that, please take a moment to give us a review!
Side note: Choosy moms and choosy dads choose Jif.
Fortunately for you, we did actually talk about an upcoming Microsoft product, and we even have an inside tip on it! (Surface AIO)
Is a smartphone an all-in-one device?
David empties his download folder. Somehow we make a useful (you decide) conversation out of it. Vernon's download folder sulks away in shame.
Wharton Brooks' Cerulean Mobile is still having a meetup, but it has been postponed. If you are interested, be sure to follow and engage with them on Twitter @CeruleanMobile
What specs do Windows Mobile enthusiasts need to be satisfied with their phone?
Vernon forgets which laptop he wants. We both discuss what we need in a laptop, which was obviously not something we prepared for. Anyone have an extra Dell XPS 13 they need to liberate?
Is the HP Elite X3 a good enough device? Should it be reviewed "as-is", or is waiting for the update a fair thing to do?
Elon Musk's automobile line makes a quick cameo.
The Microsoft Ignite Conference is happening, September 25th through the 2
Surface Smiths will be interviewing Windows Insiders at the conference!
Vernon will be attending as a member of the press
We share a pure unadulterated geek moment.
Old cheese product versus old real cheddar. There is no contest.
"Leave the gold. Take the cheese."

Vernon's app pick is Word Flow for iOS
David recommends Clamour again, the new third-party Discord app, which doesn't seem to be in the Store quite yet. Expect it soon!
Stuff they don't want you to know is Vernon's podcast pick.
