Windows Central Podcast 103: RTM is near, broken Surface Go, and more
This week on the Windows Central Podcast: New RS5 builds, a broken Surface Go, Xbox All Access, and more!
Daniel Rubino and Zac Bowden talk about the latest Redstone 5 builds as the Screen Sketch App becomes Snip & Sketch. Along those lines, they also chat about the usefulness of Sticky notes and To-do. How about Paint 2018 while we're at it? From there, the conversation moves to Xbox All Access — a monthly subscription service that gets you a new console, Xbox Live Gold, and Game Pass. We have good news and bad news. The good news is Zac received his Surface Go. The bad news? Well, if you haven't guessed from the show title, you'll have to listen and find out!

Zac or Daniel, will the your phone features be available to us IOS users as well?
Another usage scenario for modern file explorer in tablet mode. Hope they will allow to configure between top and bottom toolbar.
Hey Cortana ask Alexa how Google Assistant is doing? Ridiculous!
I would like to see a Surface Go keyboard with wireless capability (WIFI or Bluetooth.) A device that supports pen/ink is useful for drawing and markup apps, where an attached keyboard is in the way. But many of these apps benefit from occasional keyboard input. A wireless keyboard would be win-win. This comment is even more applicable to the more powerful Surface Pro. I am aware that non-Surface wireless keybards exist that shoule work with Surfce Pro/Surface Go.
Love listening to you guys but hammering on Notepad? Seriously? It's a tool. A simple tool that people still use for simple things. I realize I'm just some backward hick compared to you super technophiles but I use Notepad to strip formatting from all kinds of documents. It's easy to use and I'm comfortable with it. I'll agree that the amount of time spent talking about Notepad on Windows Weekly is a bit absurd, but c'mon guys, you're better than that.
