We talk Windows, smart home, music tech, vintage tech, EVs and lots more.

We have a very special show for you this week! Dave Robertson has created the most amazing Christmas light display at his home using over 11,000 lights, controlled by devices including a Raspberry Pi, all synchronized to music.

It's a brilliant display, and it's all for a very good cause. Dave is going to explain to us how long he has been working on it (spoiler: a long time!), how he created the light mapping, and how he coordinated the light and music shows. Dave also shares why this year he stepped up his show and the cause to which donations are going.

Garry and I also catch up on this week’s smart home news, Windows builds, and more. I think you are going to enjoy this one!
