Windows 10 20H1 inches closer to reality with a new build in the Fast ring. Cortana mobile apps are going away for users in most markets, except for the United States. The release of Surface Earbuds has been delayed until Spring 2020, possibly to address their value compared to other Bluetooth earbuds?

Zac also reviews Google Stadia as he and Daniel discuss the company's image problem. And speaking of image problems, Apple is attempting to address their own issues with the new 16-inch MacBook Pro. They're also actively hiring developers to work on Windows UWP apps.

The guys close out the episode with speculation about Surface Book 3 — or maybe Microsoft will shift strategies to release a 'Surface Laptop Pro'.

Daniel Rubino and Zac Bowden are back with the latest news for Microsoft users. Along with the recent release of Windows 10 November 2019 Update, there are new Fast ring builds of 20H1. There's also a Canary build of the Edge web browser for ARM processors.

The company has confirmed some changes for Cortana, but additional rumors are circulating about future directions for Cortana. In the hardware realm, Daniel provides a taste of his Surface Pro X review and shares his thoughts on what the device is good (and maybe not so good) for.

Zac Bowden and Daniel Rubio talk about the new RTM schedule and their experiences with some new laptops. They also discuss Microsoft's victory in securing a $10 billion U.S. Government 'JEDI' cloud contract.

Plans for xCloud console streaming could bring the experience to even more places. Finally, Dan and Zac fears have been realized — Google is purchasing Fitbit for $2.1 billion.
