Bret from Temecula, CA
Microsoft Surface Pro

Bret recently bought the Microsoft Surface Pro, which he hopes will replace his laptop. But he's found that on the tablet side of the equation, he doesn't see many apps at all, especially Words with Friends. Leo says that's not exactly accurate. There may be few apps in the Windows Store, but he can get Windows apps all over the place. However, the apps he's used may not have made a Surface app yet. Will Bluestacks work for running Android apps? Leo says that's the idea, but it doesn't really work.
