In episode #141 of the SMRPodcast we start off with the iPad Mini and continue our discussion from last week on if the the pricing is too high.  Allison Sheridon from the Nosilla Podcast weighs in with an audio comment.

We also talk a lot about the Windows Surface RT.  Rod and Chris both got their Surface RT devices last Friday.  Robb got to play with one today before, and, even though he is holding out for a full Windows 8 Tablet, he really likes the Surface RT.

We’ve got all this, Borderlands 2 talk, our picks, and more in this weeks episode of the SRMpodcast.
