Does anyone know if/how music purchased from the Google play store can be burned to a CD? I'm not talking about all access, just songs I have purchased from the play store.
I also wouldn't mind importing the music into itunes on my PC. Is this possible?

Thanks, your googling skills are better than mine.

I saw that the Nokia Lumia 735 is on sale at a local store near me for AUS$169 sim free which is about £88.
Was thinking of picking one up and was hoping someone here might talk me out of it? ;)

I wouldn't have minded the dual sim 730 but as it was I picked up the 735 which is the 4G version. Great value and it even came with a spare back cover and has wireless charging. The screen is pretty impressive for the money s well.
I'm going to try and use it as my main device

For any Aussies out there wanting a bargain the Lumia 530 is $39.50 at woolworths (about £22) including a free case and 3 months of skype to landlines. It's locked to telstra though but that's the only catch. Would make a cheap GPS and wifi hotspot at the very least.

Its £40 in UK from CPW...locked to EE or Vodafone. Plus you are forced to £10 top up on PAYG. (Total £50). Still not bad.

The scorpio was a sluggish 2.3 litre turbo. This is a smaller cosworth 4 cylinder turbo. Massive difference in performance. The cosworth engined sierra was a force to be reckoned with on the track.

IPod touch replacement.
My 4th gen ipod touch can't keep up these days and was really starting to show its age plus the battery was suffering from old age so I thought I'd replace it with a new one. I ended up buying a Nokia lumia 630 to use solely as an iPod replacement. My reasoning was as follows.
A. Cheaper
B. Replaceable battery
C. Podcast app built in
D. ITunes compatible
E. Quicker UI (than my old iPod)
F. FM radio built in
On top of that it uses micro USB and has a built in GPS with offline maps and it takes a micro SD card and if I'm really desperate I can put my Sim card in it in an emergency.
I went with windows phone over a cheap android as they tend to have a longer standby time as I leave it on flight mode with WiFi enabled and use WiFi sense to check for new podcasts on my coffee breaks.
I'm really pleased with my new workaround and am astounded at my genius.

Windows phone and Google plus.

I've recently sold my iPhone 6 plus and have tried to make myself use a Windows phone as my main device. I bought a lumia 735 and an 830 dirt cheap and might step up to a 930 for the better camera.
Being an avid googler, I wanted to get my photos on to Google plus. I tried the Google plus apps of which there are many with no luck.
Recently I downloaded an app called Picasa photo hub that seems to be able to do this automatically. It's free and once set up you don't need to really open the app again.
Now on my iPad I can have the photo continuity I was after with all the location detail backed up as well.
I don't know how long this WP experiment will last but it's all good so far. I really like the 735. The battery life blows the 6+ away and the screen is amazing.
Now to find a decent pebble app...

No, it's a disaster. Even using the desktop version of the browser it's still hopeless. I tend to read G+ on my iPad but I do like my photos to back up to it from my phone.

New iPhone 6 plus thoughts.

I just got a new iPhone 6 plus after years on android and I'm having a few frustrations with the operating system.
The main ones are:
Emoticons in general are disorganised and don't seem to work at all on the swype keyboard.
I can't set custom notification tones on whatsapp. Only the Apple ones.
I find that the interface stutters more than I thought it would.
I can't share a photo from the photo app except to a small number of apps.
The drop down toast notifications get in the way of search fields and the back button.
The app switcher is terrible compared to android. I didn't realise how much I used it until now.
The settings menu is a mess and needs a complete revamp.

I'll persist with it for now as I like the battery life and the camera as well as the fingerprint sensor. It does feel like a note 2 though in the silicone case I have it in.

My partner just got a new iPhone 6 to replace her trusty old iPhone 5 and I was given the task of setting it up and trying to remember her old passwords.
I'd recently set up my own iPad mini 2 as a new device and managed to avoid the dreaded iTunes but this time I set hers up from an icloud backup. ......never again!
What a convoluted affair! I ended up plugging it in to my laptop and after about 3 hours I was pulling my hair out.
What I realized was that icloud is like the iTunes of the airwaves, an enigma, a difficult way of doing a simple task and that I really don't know what icloud actually is.
Anyway, I had to get that off my chest. I'd just set up an HTC one m8 for myself a day before and I got most of it done standing in the queue at MacDonald's!

When i did this it was a matter of typing the Apple ID password and my new iPad was exactly like the old. Down to the orientation-lock setting. Some apps, like kindle, required me to enter my user information again but that was it.
Wifi settings are remembered across all my devices. I took my new MacBook to my moms house where it had never been. And it automatically connected to her wifi. Probably lifted it from my iPhone which I had previously used there.

Great retro resort. See how the other half lived in 1988 at a fraction of the price. Sure its not the world class resort it was in 1988 but then if it was you couldn't afford it (actually it is exactly how it was in 1988). Loved the pool, rooms were dated but clean and beds were comfortable. Most people who complain are forgetting to mention they are staying here on the cheap. Get a ground floor pool balcony room, watch the original ad on you tube and live like a pre 80's recession rock star. I loved it.

Great coffee, cheery staff and good food brings me back here time and again. We never feel like we are being rushed out the door. A Sunday favourite.

If you like hanging around beautiful people or pretending you are one look no further. Not cheap but it doesn't try to be.
