    One of these days I’m going to stop leading off on my comments with “great episode”.

    Great episode guys, a few comments:

    1. Motorola announcement – I was really disappointed (and somewhat surprised) at the screen size of the Moto X Style/Pure Edition. The Moto X has been known for having a smaller display than the competition, and that’s why some of us chose them. It’s a shame that they went full-on phablet with the 2015 Moto X, leaving those of us who don’t want a phablet with limited options. The Moto X Play seems like a decent alternative, but even 5.5-inch is rather large. Really disappointing (especially when all of the other specs of the phone are great).

    2. OneDrive – I tweeted at you about this, Stefan – yes, it’s baked in, but only in a half-assed way. You cannot see any files that you don’t have “synced” (downloaded) and you cannot move your OneDrive folder to anything other than the primary drive. Here’s why this is ridiculous:

    Let’s say you’re a Microsoft NUT – you’ve got Office365 subscription, which gives you unlimited* OneDrive storage, and you throw everything you can in there. Since you’re the ultimate fanboi, you’ve also bought a Surface Pro 3. You’re not made of money, though, so you bought the 128GB version (mid-range. They go from 64GB to 512GB currently). Windows 10 is going to take up ~25GB of that, leaving you with 100GB (estimated). But you have unlimited storage in your OneDrive, so you have 1TB of photos, videos, documents, and random other crap in there. You now have to manually choose, upon setup, which 100GB of “stuff” you want to store, out of the 1024GB (1TB) of data.

    The only way to browse your cloud-stored files is to fire up that browser, like a straight-up caveman.

    That’s a best-case scenario. Let’s assume you’re a student – you have Office365 (and unlimited storage) through your school program, and you’ve filled that up with assignments, presentations, etc. Since you’re a student, the only thing you could afford was one of those entry-level laptops, which typically have 32GB of HDD storage. After Windows 10, you only have ~5-7GB free, and that’s assuming you don’t have any games or movies or anything stored. Good luck choosing 5GB out of the 1024GB you have in your OneDrive.

    It’s ridiculous and absurd, and not a single review that I read pointed this out.
