  1. Yeah it looks great and is excellent value. I think if I wanted something a bit smaller I'd go iPad mini but only as I love the Apple ecosystem and Facetime is a must now. Would you have got the mini if it was out when you bought the Fire?
  2. The new iPad is an obligatory upgrade to feature the new dock and no doubt iron out some of the "issues" from iPad 3 like the heating and battery charge time. Only the super needy will be upgrading. For everyone else, if you always waited to see what may be released, you'd never get anything. In its current form, the iPad is about as good as it can get from a hardware standpoint. Hopefully this upgrade will buy the development guys an extra 6 months to come up with something revolutionary again. iPad mini will be popular but isn't competing with Kindle Fire. It can do everything a full sized iPad can do, but when the bespoke apps start to be developed, it will become a completely different product. If you are only interested in consumption and want the best product to do that on the move, iPad mini makes sense. My guess is that if you are the type of person to get the Kindle Fire as your only tablet, you're probably not an Apple target customer. If you love iPad but think it's too big, now there is something for you.
  3. It's always tough to try something a bit different, especially without a household name at the top of the bill. Numbers are OK and lots more have said they are coming. If you haven't got your tickets yet, Idles are very highly regarded and their EP 'Welcome' has received rave reviews. With support from Cartesian Jetstream and the Ballagroove DJs, it should be a great night. Here's a track from Idles
  4. Here is Cartesian Jetstream's latest track. They will be supporting Idles on 23 November at the Villa http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ovYSMvrFSo
  5. Idles are a UK band tipped for big things and being touted as one of the best bands coming out of Bristol. They are a popular local festival band headlining at Dot to Dot and Simple Things. They are coming to the Villa on 23 November. Videos and gig information here - http://www.villagaie...38;menuid=11570 This is how they describe themselves - Idles sound has always been a hard one to categorise, but imagine something between the intense rock and roll of The Walkmen and the dark post-punk of Joy Division and you'll be somewhere close. However, anyone who has witnessed the bands live show will confirm that they are very much about doing their own thing. Joe's vocals have the yearnings of soul and the rage of punk, all riding on the blissfully driven bass lines of Dev - This is more than complimented by the spiky dual guitars of Andy S and Mark Bowen and the logic-defying drumming of Jon Beavis - carving out a fully-charged live show that is as thrilling as it is unforgettable. More info about Idles - www.idlesband.co.uk Support for Idles on 23 November at the Villa will be Cartesian Jetstream (who recently featured on Tom Robinson's BBC Radio 6 show) and Ballagroove DJs. Check out Cartesian Jetstream on their Soundcloud page here - http://soundcloud.co...esian-jetstream Edit: Support info added
