Episode Description 
Windows still runs more than three-quarters of the world's PCs. And the upcoming Windows 8 is about Microsoft using that existing heft to power its way onto smaller screens too. Online opinions differ wildly on whether consumers will dig it, but one thing is for sure: Windows 8 looks dramatically different from the Windows that you're used to today -- Microsoft is trying to reinvent Windows for post-PC era. Also, we construct a boffo campaign speech from nothing but the titles of songs in President Obama’s Spotify playlist.
