Windows Weekly 445: Microsoft Marketing Chief Chris Capossela

On a special holiday episode of Windows Weekly, Microsoft Chief Marketing Officer Chris Capossela, Leo Laporte, Mary Jo Foley and I weigh in on how well Microsoft did in 2015.

Note: Chris did not “confirm” the Lumia 650, sorry. He was talking about the Lumia 550 and simply misidentified it. –Paul
