    Not useful to me unless I can download the audio only.

    Surface hardware did look underwhelming. Hopefully the surface brand doesn't get diluted with subpar stuff.

    Good temp on the this live event! Congratulations from No(r)way!

    However the sound from Pauls place could be better? Agrrree?

    His deep voice sort of dissapear in a "black box"?

      Hm.  Listening to this now and I would say that Paul's audio is low/muffled.  He would definitely benefit from a dedicated mic.

    Since its focused on Windows 10, could they announce that they are going to be doing proper build testing for stability? Al la Paul's article on a Reliable computing initiative?

    Congrats on your first week! I have watched all of them and today was special because Andrew made a cameo. I didn't know he works closely with you guys. I thought he was off doing his own thing. I download What the Tech all the time. I think that's great. I could tell Brad is a little frayed at the edges. Paul, you can't let him pick on you like that. Give him a few zingers too. Thanks!

    Brad looks like he has better skin tone than Paul. Its like Paul's side looks cold/pale and Brad's side looks warm. Perhaps its the lighting?

      Yeah, Paul definitely needs to work on his lighting.

    I am of the impression that Microsoft is getting out of the consumer business. Band gone.  Phone gone.  Surface only for business and premium priced. Latest version of Xbox software not able to run my TV system.
    Asian makers going more to android.  Getting hard to be interested in Microsoft for the future.  Just a business company, but not on the edge.  Not really competitive with Google in the consumer space.

    It may be interesting if the Surface AIO ends up being an AI-O. Kind of a bridge between Alexa and the PC. That would explain the rumours about this being a living room or kitchen PC and it would be an innovation worthy of the Surface name. Voice control, Cortana, interactive display and full PC. It would be nice. But the current state if these things makes me think: not likely...

    All-in-ones aren't that useful for college/university students because they're not portable. All-in-one PLUS laptop would make more sense EXCEPT economically. For primary and secondary school age children, what's the big draw for all-in-ones? I think MSFT wisely didn't target this at back-to-school. It would have disappointed tech commenters had they done so.

    Not sure it'd do lots better for the holidays.
