Welcome to Episode 145.

I begin things with an earth shattering discovery relating to the recent Microsoft acquisition of Minecraft. This blew me away almost as much as my discovery of the arrow in the FEDEX logo.

Next up is news for developers on Microsoft’s phone and desktop platforms that makes their registration fee now just a one time affair which means no more annual renewal just to keep your apps in the stores. Of course there is always Windows 9 news as we get closer to that technical preview which will be revealed on 30 Sep with the technical preview becoming available in early October.

Windows Phone continues its development as well so we have some items relating to the next version of Windows Phone that will supposedly be based on Windows 9 Threshold and the next incremental update Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2.

Then we will talk about new Windows hardware accessories, a reason behind the app gap perception, Destiny’s massive launch in dollars and cents, changes at Microsoft as it continues to evolve under Satya Nadella, Toshiba leaving the consumer PC business and TwitPic’s reprieve with a lesson to be learned for all of us.

Of course, there are numerous other tidbits scattered throughout the show as well including a new Office technical preview and the best marketing of cloud storage ever.

Until next time enjoy the show and thanks for listening.
