A look at Microsoft's top-secret Surface prototypes. A critical take on the Roku 3. A simple question: which smartphone has the best camera?

Welcome to Top Shelf, a weekly show from The Verge that takes a deeper dive into the products and experiences of the technology that shapes our lives. Join David Pierce and a veritable gaggle of (mostly organic) friends as they showcase the best in consumer electronics, past, present, and future.

This week's guests? Our resident Microsoft expert Tom Warren and "War for TV" veteran Nilay Patel. We'll be broadcasting at 5PM ET today (and yes, it'll be available on demand soon after). After the show, stick around for our live blog of Samsung Unpacked followed by The Verge Live: Samsung Galaxy S4.

P.S. - We're now on iTunes! Subscribe now and the new episode will show up by tomorrow morning.
