The Vergecast and Windows 8, it turns out, have many things in common:

  • They are both Very Big Deals.
  • Like Windows 8, you might want to pay attention to the Vergecast going into the holiday shopping season.
  • The Vergecast may not run well on very old machines.
  • They're available right now.
  • The Surface's keyboard is called Touch Cover; Nilay's jacket is also occasionally referred to as a "touch cover."
  • ...and, most importantly, our own Tom Warren is involved with both.
