Zac and Daniel talk about the apparent internal disconnect within Microsoft when it comes to reliably bringing Windows 10 updates to the Surface product line. There are new updates to Teams that can help make online meetings more tolerable.

They also discuss positioning and expectations for the upcoming Surface Duo — Microsoft didn't set out to make an Android phone. They set out to make a Surface phone that happens to run Android.

An Xbox event is set for July 23 where we expect to see more titles announced and hopefully more in-game footage. The Amazon Prime Video app is out now for Windows 10, and the guys round out the show with some chat about new laptops.

There's a new developer build of Windows 10 available, which features significant changes to the Start menu. Daniel and Zac have the details on that as well as the Arm-based Lenovo Flex 5G.

Speaking of Arm processors, they compare Apple's efforts with their own designs with Microsoft's SQ1. The guys also talk about Xbox Series S Lockhart rumors and even touch on wearable computing with devices like the Oura Ring and Google's acquisition of North.
