Admittedly, we often take a more positive view of Microsoft than perhaps the average consumer may. This episode is an exception. David has had about enough of Microsoft lately, so we asked Adam Doud to join us so that we can properly criticize the company, and especially, Windows 10 Mobile.
True to form, Adam has to remind us how webOS has paved the way for everything that is good about the current reigning mobile platforms. Also, the Cubs game was a good distraction during the show. Overall, it was an incredible episode.
Be sure to check out Adam's work at Pocketnow, and his podcast, TekBeard.

18:36 Be public with your praise and private with your criticism. Unless you review things for a living.
28:07 David talks about Zune. Why? Well, what kind of show would it be if Zune wasn't mentioned?
31:43 Which part(s) of "Microsoft Mobile" are "dead"? Windows 10 itself is still pretty awesome.
35:01 Is UWP the answer? To anything?
38:21 We hear about Adam's recent blog post about "Microsoft Killing the Lumia".
48:13 Maybe Windows is just meant to be on desktop, and not on phone.
