We’re back with a new episode, and while the tech industry is at a standstill, the Internet gets a red-light district, and the Zune bids adieu. Meanwhile, the week has been dominated by security flaw after security flaw, and Rebecca Black infects

We also wonder why 13-year olds are driving cars, and Internet Explorer 9 is finally out – and Stewart hates it. Why? Well, you have to find out and listen. It’s a trio this week, as James and Tom are again not here, so you’re left with Terence, Chris and Stewart.
We also make an effort to try and go clean (for once). Don’t forget to listen and subscribe to our podcast!
