We are joined by Rees from ctrl-alt-rees this week to chat about some of the stories that you have suggested for us on our Reddit page. The WinXP activation process can now be completed without the need to go online thanks to a new process. A shop that shut its doors for 30 odd years reopens with all its old tech stock intact an up for sale. Mc Donald's customers in China have been able to buy a Mc Nugget that can run Tetris.
All this and some answers to the Community Question Of The Week.
