September 19, 2011 at 1:00PM • 1 hour 25 minutes • Wiki Entry

Dan and Marco discuss the Netflix/Qwickster split and then devote the rest of the episode to Windows 8 and Metro: how the desktop, iOS, Android, and Metro interfaces scale to accommodate more features over time, the shortcomings of gesture-based touch interfaces, Metro's adoption challenges among customers and developers, and Microsoft's possible return to their effective strategies from the 1990s.
