Holy cow... winners of the WM app win a surface... "Here is all the money you make off of commissions on your apps... and thanks for making a good app, here is $15,000 for doing a good job... have fun with it!" what a nice gift.. seriously for a techie that develops apps for a phone, getting a free surface is like telling a fat kid he just won a candy store!
