Re: Six Flags Magic Mountain

Desperado! We will be hiring a convertable (pMustang) in LA for a week, drive up to MM and then onto Grand Canyon and back down to Vegas in a week - then the party can begin :-) Thanks for the advice guys - I am thinking of booking a hotel near MM for two nights, sandwiching the visit to MM in betwe...

Space Mountain Construction

Great piece here by The Daily Mail (Yes, I know, The Daily Mail!) regarding the construction of Space Mountain -  never seen some of these photos before! Facinating stuff!

Re: iOS 7

Cool. I checked it out on Apple's website to see what all the fuss is about. Not to be pedantic. It's £21.99, and for that all your non iTunes purchases are also upgrade to 256 kbp DRM free versions. So if you have a lot of old or borrowed music, that's actually pretty good value to get it all upgr...

Re: iOS 7

What's the difference between Google Play and iTunes in the Cloud? Google music you physically upload your music (20,000 tracks) to the Google servers for free and then have 100% access to it from any device/tablet/computer. It gives you the ability to download form the cloud onto a device also. iT...

Re: User Names

Mine has a double meaning.

I am Mike, I was born 1984. Final Fantasy 7 is the greatest game ever made (no argument) and Cloud was the main character.

I am also a big Rolling Stones fans - so "Hey, you, get off of mike cloud" always makes me smile!

Re: iOS 7

But if Google do release the iOS app which they will more money for Apple Lmfao How so? It would be a free app. It would also direct people away from relying on itunes.

Re: iOS 7

Syncing with iTunes is a more unified way of putting music on a phone. But I won't go into that :-) I too use iTunes - it's best for organising music and getting artwork etc bar none. The new version got rid of the iTunes DJ though and I can't seem to sync any remotes to it anymore - weird. I then ...

Not like android and Samsung that just throw anything in to add to the "feature list". It just makes for a clunky over excessive and overly difficult user experience. So the features that Google have "thrown" at Android are the same features which you are raving about..... Serio...
