Happy New Year everyone!
David returns as his long hours at work are starting to even out and the holiday period has passed. We kick the show off talking about how we celebrated the holidays then move into talking about some of the latest news to come from a somewhat slower period at Microsoft due to the holidays.
Also on tap, our personal picks of the week along with David chastising Vernon for failing to yet see the number one grossing movie in United States film history. Yes, Star Wars Episode VII: Force Awakens has passed Avatars US total, and quite quickly for that matter.

We appreciate every one of you who listens to the MS Mobile Show on a regular basis. We love the interactions as well. Without you the listener, the show becomes a pair of guys rambling on.
The show is produced and accessible for you at absolutely no cost to you other than time to listen.
While we love to bring this show to you, we would love to be able to have some more fun and have the ability to be able to buy things like T-shirts, coffee mugs, devices and software to be able to do regular giveaways like other websites and podcasts.
To do this, we would ask if you could spare as little as $1 per month ($12 a year) to help us achieve this in 2016. As many listeners as we have, according to our stats, we could do some serious giveaways if every listener signed up for just $1 per month.
To support the show, and help us make this possible, please visit our Support page in order to find out how to help this happen.
As always, thank you for listening and/or watching!
