    "A round of elimination races"... Mark, I see what you did there. "How they turn out..." You're just having pun aren't you. See what I di... Ok, it's not that good but I had to try.

    :-. The problem is choice. It's difficult to pick something for a show on short notice. I'd go for a round up of some of the more interesting stuff at the IFA 2015 in Berlin last week. Particularly any partner devices that use Windows 10 like the Acer Jade Primo (I think) phone. Also I see that Skype just got UWP treatment in Windows 10 mobile. That should be a nice topic there.
