Welcome to Episode 139.

Another developer preview update dropped at the beginning of this week and I know many folks opted to jump off that cliff and grab the update. Well I leapt off as well and it is a nice update. My favorite feature is the Live Folders for the Start Screen. It is well implemented and has some of the smoothest animations ever. You can customize them quite a bit but as one Twitter follower mentioned to me – do not over do it because it can slow down your Start Screen. I also reveal that an iPhone 4s in being used in my house!
