Looks like Microsoft is saying goodbye to WordPad, the often overlooked little brother of Word. Do you miss the old days when you could only watch your favourite TV shows when they were scheduled to be on? One clever fellow has recreated the TV channels of his youth using modern tech. Peter Molyneux, developer of many a fan favourite game is back after things went a bit wrong for him.

All this and our Community Question Of the Week.
