TDH – Windows 8

This is the last show before Spring  Break for us here in Pittsburgh, but its snowing outside…. No show next week, but we will be back full force until the end of the semester. This week on the show we talked a fair amount about the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, which you can go download and tryout for yourself on Microsoft’s site. I might have a new phone (after more than 2 years) and we speculate rather conservatively about the iPad 3 event. Please join us!
