#AskDanWindows Episode 9 – Will the Microsoft Band 2 be sold in more countries this time?

It's another weekend so time for another #AskDanWindows episode! We're a bit late this weekend due to our videographer Mark Guim lending a hand to our friends at iMore (something about a new phone launching).

About that office…

For those of you wondering about our office, we are in the final stages of setting it up. Once completed, we'll do a video office tour and also highlight some of our equipment (like the 32-inch 4K monitor by HP in the back), so stay tuned! The video is shot and look for it sometime on Monday!
