Hi folks, we got our first taste of Winter in Helsinki today with a dusting of snow. So cuddle up with a warm cup of coffee and check out all the extra news this week that we couldn’t cover. The top story is pretty cool- You can celebrate Windows 8 launch today by fetching the fresh Metro UI friendly ArcticStartup feed reader from Windows Store. Our friends at SC5 were kind enough to do a favor and use their web app wizardry to bake a nice little custom app for us.
