Also Google closes a one billion dollar deal with AOL, Brad gives us the lowdown on a new Vista preview, and lookout! The switch to digital TV is on the horizon. We also get the inside scoop on how Stardock is fighting back against software piracy, and the cops take a lesson from an anti-game violence advocate. Tom gives us a rocking game pick of the Week and a new segment: questions from the listeners. Want to be on the air? Just download Skype (it’s free) and give us a call.
