Watching the new university student intake ready to embark on at least one (presumably more) years of relaxing and partying ahead of them feels so different to last year's poor freshers experience.

It's great to see that all this 'dangerous' socialising is not making any difference to the numbers of people with the plague.

Confidence is back and there is money to be spent.

As always, here's your slice of ecommerce & digital news from the past week to enjoy.
