Today, the European Central Bank confirms that it’ll be pumping in yet ANOTHER 1.1 Trillion Euros in to their economy as part of MORE Quantitative Easing (QE), and Leigh is worried. Big Voice Jay is more concerned by these new LED Keyboards. Nothing is reported from CES. Tory likes media keyboards.

As the data gathered shows an omnivorous click-stream, user profiling, targeting and surveillance becomes futile.
Tory and Leigh is here in disgust as the website has sold out EVEN more. Head of Research is upset. So Leigh has decided to do his own research for today’s show.

People have been complaining that Narrowboat Dan’s theme tune should be loosely based on Rosie & Jim and not Postman Pat.
There is a super secret project coming. A standard version of it will be released for all on Monday 3rd November. But you can pre-order a deluxe version of secret project here. Be warned: the deluxe version WILL NOT be available EVER after 2nd November. Once this opportunity is gone – it’s gone!
Talking of stationary, an issue with paperclips has occurred, and Leigh isn’t happy.
