Sonos AXES support for Apple's iOS4 and 5

Re: WTF...?

I have an old G4 mac running OSX 10.3.

It works absolutely fine for streaming my music collection over my home network. I 'd be gutted if a Windows update made that network share inaccessible to the old Mac.

Old tech can always be re-purposed!

Racing Games

You might also want to look at "Game Stock Car 2013".

It's essentially rFactor with a load of mods put together in one nice, tidy package which is being lauded as one of the best sim racing games ever made by a lot of people in the sim racing community.

Re: "claims people make about their future behaviour doesn't reflect real-life"

Streaming music apps like Spotify are so close to being perfect it's untrue. All we need is properly decent, ubiquitous mobile broadband. Especially in the countryside when I'm thrashing the motorbike.

When we have that (mainly because I listen to music either at home or on the go -rarely somewhere where I don't have either local storage or wifi), I'll happily sub to one of these.

The question really is which bloody one! I had the same problem choosing between Netflix and LoveFilm.

There will always be room in my heart for Sonic 2. That game was simply phenomenal.

As a side note, you could plug in pretty much any game in to S&K and play a random bonus stage!

Good shout, considering CM are NOT supporting the S4 officially. Wouldn't surprise me if the UK version gets a decent port from someone else due to it running the S600 over here as opposed to the Exynos 8-core CPU.

This iteration of Sense does seem a whole world better than previous versions (I can say that with experience of all Sense's various iterations over the years), though I too prefer stock. At least this time, it's not been too over-engineered.

Regarding BLINKFEED: It can at least be set up to not refresh on mobile data. :)

Awesome phone

I've got one here, it's lovely.

I've never really bough spare batteries before, so removable battery doesn't bother me.

As for SD-Card... I've lived with an 8GB one on my Desire S for the last two years... 32GB in built is loads for me! I don't really play games on phones (aside from puzzles) because I refuse to carry a PS3 control pad around with me all the time. I've got a Nexus 7 for video (although the One has a far superior display, it's just too small for a film of TV show).

I feel for all you guys that need removable stuffs! This phone is honestly the nicest mobile device I've ever used.

The only problem with Nexus devices is that having the latest version of Android often breaks your apps.

Impatiently Waiting

For this to come out on XBLA. I feel the analogue controls provided by the 360 pad will make the handling model of this game feel much more sim like. The sense of speed is already phenomenal. Gran Turismo and Forza will be terrified of this superior release.
