Current Windows updates

I am a Mac user primarily in most of my work, but I do have a Surface Pro and run Windows in a Parallels VM on my MacBook Pro. I have read and enjoyed Mary Jo and Paul for 20 years. They are a calming force in the technology world which is chaotic at times. I look forward to the beer picks of the week as well.

Need a new host

Paul is like a black hole of negativity. All he does is complain…about everything. He loathes Apple to his core so if that subject comes up that is what you get. Marry Jo needs to distance herself from both Paul and Leo who is just a mess.

This pod cast is about Windows 10 beta builds and negativity. Leo hates Windows but I guess this pod cast brings him some $$$…maybe???

Would I recomend this to a friend…NO WAY.
