    Chromecast sounds good if more services support it in the long run.

    Better than buying a friggin Xbox for smartglass with Gold on top.

    They are beta-testing streaming content from a browser though. Plus, couldn't you play downloaded stuff through an app from Google Play, like VLC etc?

    I think you can mirror what's on your Android phone. Something like that anyway.

    Mirroring your Android screen would be quite good...

    Ah, having read another article, it only mirrors chromecast compatible apps - so yeah, YT, Netflix, Google Play. Not much kop for local content at the moment, but that may develop I guess.

    Thing is it sounded like all apps have the ability to build chromecast in, the sdk is available to anybody, innit?

    Chromecast sounds pointless. I can't think of someone intreased in a Google product that does not have any of the following ;

    DNLA handset
    Game console
    Smart TV
    HTPC
    Raspberry Pi
    XMBC
    Miracast device
    Media streaming box

    And about a ton other niche products.

    So yeah if you don't have any of the above chances are you will never hear of Chromecast.

    I've only seen videos and read reviews, they seem very customisable, capable and XBMC runs very well on it.

    This will be ace for my TV in the gym. Well at the moment there are no wegiths in my gym so i guess thats more of a priority :-(

    but its cheap enough to just buy one, especially as i already have netflix.

    Bah ... I've done a mowgli. :-(
    Although I bought a little pouch to offer a minimum of protection for my phone, since I hate the screen protector/bumper cases, I've been carrying the phone about for the last few days. The pouch was lying on the table at home.
    Went to put it in my jeans pocket, missed the pocket somehow and it hit the floor. I picked it up and put it away. About an hour later, as i took it out, I did think "hmm. That was a bit of a fall, I hope it's OK. Forgot to check even."
    The screen is cracked from the left bottom to the middle of the right hand side. Only the top bit still works.

    I managed to get in via face unlock and by tilting it around a lot I could just about do anything I wanted to do. Should have though about changing the security settings though. I've now had maximum face unlock attempts. I restarted it and i can give in my pin but I can't press enter.

    There's a shop not too far away that replaces the screens for 199 though. I'll be heading over there this lunchtime. :-/

    Boooooooh. Takes them a week or two to order the screen for a Nexus.
    I'm leaving on vacation on Friday.
    Work has a spare Nokia E71 but that's a normal SIM and I have a micro sim. I guess I'll be passing by the local provider's store to swap sims over lunch time.

    I wonder whether I'm better off bringing my phone with me to the UK in the hopes of finding a "fix while you wait" service somewhere.

    Bugger. Looks like CPW's geeksquad do it loads cheaper but I don't think I'm over in the UK long enough to chance doing it there. Sadly my digital camera started acting up a few months ago, so with the phone out as well it looks like I won't be getting any snapshots from this vacation. :-(

    The Moto X has finally got unveiled.

    http://www.engadget.com/2013/08/01/motorola-moto-x-preview/

    I see colour customization gets you a mid range phone for a rather premium price on a contract. Ouch.

    Guess Nexus is the way to go.

    Anyone having trouble with MX player on 4.3 can use the "VLC for android beta". Works a charm.

    MX Player's just been updated, working fine on 4.3 for me now.

    I've just got my new Nexus 7 (from Amazon US using comGateway to forward to the UK) and very lovely it is too! Being slightly narrower and lighter shouldn't make a huge difference but it does feel much better to hold (madam) and the screen looks great.

    How does the 7" fit into your hand? Do you get cramp after a while?

    You'll have to ask my missus I'm afraid.

    ; )

    My brother is off to New York for a midweek break this time next week and he is very tempted to buy one, seeing as he has a Nexus 4 too.
