    I like my iPhone quite a lot.

    I think it is mostly because I like having a smart phone quite a lot. I am pretty sure I would be pretty happy with any smartphone, as long as it, you know, functions.

    I actually quite like what I've used on iPhones as far as the OS goes

    But I absolutely hate the appstore, itunes, and everything about how apple sells digital content

    iTunes is a GIGANTIC pile of poop, on that I will definitely agree. I try to interact with it as little as possible.

    Personally the AppStore has worked fine for me but, I am not sure how things are handled on android for comparison.

    I bought a Nexus but sold it like a week later

    The hardware was nice and responsive but I couldn't deal with the Android OS

    It's like the most unintuitive thing I've ever used in my life

    Device 6 Hint.
    There is a way to hear the audio backwards that does not involve recording it with another device.

    Well, solved that bit in about 5 seconds after that hint.

    Now it's just the link test. I think I might just have a break and get back to it in a bit.

    So I finally joined Amazon Prime

    Booted up the Amazon Instant app

    Who the hell designed the layout for this thing? Are they fired yet?

    Every season of every show is its own separate listing? What?

    I don't have an opinion on iPhones or other smart phones since I still have my cheap cell phone with a camera on it from back when cell phones having cameras was considering a cool new deal. (It's a shitty camera though.) iPhones seem cool and there are tons of iOS games (Damn I wish I could play Device 6) seem cool but I'm not willing to spend money on one when I rarely use the dinky cellphone I already have and I already have a portable gaming system.

    I've still got an iPhone 4 and had it since it was the new hotness, but I really don't want to spend like $700 on a new one - and I never want to be in a contract again. Fuuuck that.

    Especially with the 3 year terms here in Canada.

    I can't really go back from iOS though, especially with all the software like JamUp. Apple certainly has the monopoly on music stuffs.

    I had a 3G/3GS for so long. Loved it when I got it but it just became so slow over time

    Then I got a 5 and suddenly the world was a new and happy place again

    Still pretty satisfied with the 5

    I'm just really hating myself for updating to iOS7. I'm sure it's great on the newer phones, but it just crawls on mine. Things that used to be super snappy on iOS6 take up to two seconds to respond which is maddening!

    Oh, and I don't like the way Apple changed some things like the sorting for albums in the Music app. I much preferred having a list of albums to enter into, rather than scrolling through every track that artist has done!

    You know, there should be more wolfgames.

    Really terrible ones.

    Wolf Quest was a good start but really they could be a lot better/worse.

    I finished reading the 999 LP and VLR is now on my Christmas wishlist

    I'm glad to hear from Patrick's spoilercast that VLR has much better puzzles! because I started skimming those like mad

    I never thought too hard about the "digital root" stuff either, and only got it down by the end through sheer repetition

    Is it just as much a theme in VLR? I can see myself actually trying to work out what the story's leading up to via digital root when I'm actually playing

    The fact that mathematics is a legitimate aid in figuring out twists is super duper neat

    Never overthink the puzzles in device six. They can be challenging, but their answers are not incredibly involved.

    Fuuuuuck.

    You know that comic with the little kid about to play Contra 4 and someone warns him "Now careful Jimmy, this game will make a man out of you" And the next panel he looks like a grizzled 40 year old?

    Yea that was the painted world in Dark souls for me.

    Hated it and died so much, but hours later I had murdered everything and taken anything not nailed down. I left the boss alive, if only to just say to her "Now you live in your dead empty world all alone... You live with that."
