We're back with another exciting episode of the Windows Central Podcast, and this week Daniel Rubino and Zac Bowden have a ton of hardware and software news to share! As usual, there's a new build for fast ring insiders. But Microsoft had an embarrassing week on the server side of things when a Windows 10 activation server caused some PCs to lose activated status.
Surface Go LTE preorders are available now — the always connected device starts at $675. Zac and Daniel clarify the confusing Core m3-based Surface device Best Buy is advertising for Black Friday. It's not a Surface Pro 6 custom manufactured for the electronics retail giant. It's a Surface Pro 5, but still an impressive bargain!
Next, the discuss the possibilities that exist with Samsung's foldable display technology, and wrap things up with the Lenovo Yoga C630. Tune in!

As hard a pill as it is to swallow, perhaps its time Microsoft scraps the Andromeda pipe dream and just focuses on making Your Phone integrations better on Android. With light, powerful, laptop 2-in-1s, why not just stay the course and try to convince ppl to carry around a Surface Go or HP Envy x2 in a backpack or purse?
Andromeda will be Different And I wasn't very impressed Samsung device.
I hope so too. But so far haven't heard anything that makes Andromeda significantly different. Who knows maybe Microsoft will surprise us? But in general Microsoft's future is rooted firmly in its past... laptops... devices that act like laptops (aka 2 in 1s)... and peripherals for laptops... headphones... mice... color dials... pens... It's what they do best. What's more, the kinds of ppl that buy laptops are the kind of ppl that subscribe to Office 365 and Azure services. Nadella needs to ask himself "how does an Andromeda device grow O365 and Azure subs?" If it doesn't? Then make the unpopular but right decision to scrap it, as weak and as milktoast as that might make him appear to the fans.
Is this episode supposed to be available on Mixer?
