Welcome to Episode 60 of the show!

In this episode we begin with the sad news concerning the death of Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, and the efforts that are happening to memorialize his families request that we all look up and wink at the moon. After that we talk about the Windows Store and introduce you to a terrific resource, McAkins Online, who provides great insight into the store, how it is growing and the apps that are starting to appear in the RTM Windows Store.
