Engadget Eurocast 063 - 5.23.14

We're broadcasting from San Francisco this week and joined by TUAW editor-in-chief Victor Agreda Jr. and Engadget's own Sarah Silbert to talk Beats acquihire rumors and the "lapability" of the Surface Pro 3. Dan tried to get Plan B to join the show, but, well... it is 2014. We've got all the details about Microsoft's newest slate-top and some insight as to how it fares as a daily driver. James shares some info about Samsung's latest foray into tangential gadgets: a VR rig tailored specifically for mobile devices that's being fast-tracked to beat out the competition. There's also been some action in the EE camp leading to another round of avian-inspired gear that's priced to move, although Jamie's going to wait for the LTE Moto G. It's a great bit of banter to soak up, so kick back and get ready for this week's Engadget Eurocast!
