The end of an era :(
@ChrisRW: Good to know. I'm off to Melbourne on holiday in a few months so I can pack the right stuff now, but need to remove all those thongs I wear now :P
Rocking the Surface 3 there Rick, you enjoying it?
My usual dress code is casual for work or very casual for out-of-work.
Thanks for the shout out last week and the bridge it the Forth Rail Bridge.
I'm loving the return of the older Xbox games to windows phone 8, I've previously bought lots of those and parachute panic is excellent.
I'd also recommend Max and the Magic Marker. If you are a sucker for "old" gaming like I used to remember way back then the Game Room games are fun.
I would love to see the release of the NFL app on Xbox One to those not in the US. I'm in the UK and would use this, but sadly it isn't available to us over here.

Yeah, sometimes they come out pretty good. E.g. http://1drv.ms/1tVG42T
@JohnEgbert Give Golnaz a shout on either here or twitter and ask nicely, she sent me some. although it was after 2 years of asking on the Ping show :)
Good show guys.
That 3D interactive photography thing is really cool.
Nokia always have some great tips on photography and I love trying them out with my 1020, though my shots don't ever come out quite like the great ones they demo :)
Iron Man vs Batman would be good as technically neither are superheroes.
I'll check in from time to time using the Facebook app on my 1020, usually only when I'm at places I've been talking about to friends. Just so they know I've been :)
I don't remember ET being that bad on my Atari 2600, but my memory must be fading.
I hope you have downloaded and are now playing the awesome Snap Attack from Wordament :)
We already have interactive whiteboards here in some of the schools in the UK, but it would be better if it was a large touch-screen instead.
PixelSense (old Surface) would be great to see in schools for round table collaboration and as martinmine says, e-ink paper for note taking.
OneNote is a must as it is brilliant, but it really comes alive when you can use a pen with it. They need to have an e-ink display with a digitizer and use OneNote on that.
I stick mainly to playing games on my WP or Xbox One and on occasion the PC.
I'm currently working on the new Hexic, Titanfall, Trials Fusion, PvZ & KS Rivals and GODUS on the PC.
Looking forward to The Division and Halo 5 (and Halo 2 HD remake)
@MarkDeFalco:I wish MS would bring back NFL Fever, loved those games but sadly EA muscled in and now own the NFL :(
@John: Yeah, not going totally flat into tablet mode is just silly.
I'm currently rocking the 8.1 update on my Lumia 1020 and love it, so many great little additions have been added, they have done a great job. Just have to wait on Cortana sadly, to hit the UK.
The only thing I'm waiting for hardware wise is a Surface Mini :)
@Jason818 The questions you want answers to can't ever be answered, imo.
I hear more rumours on an upcoming Surface Mini (7-8" screen) with pen input. This is something I'd love to go nicely with my Surface Pro. I'm pretty sure you can't tell us anything about it even if you did know, but thoughts?
