    So folks, what's the coolest bit of tech do you own (can be anything)? For me it is my Nokia wireless charging pad. It is cool just to slap my cyan charge cover on my 810, drop it on the pad, and then go to sleep. 
    I love my Klipsch Image s4 headphones, since my music sounds great when I'm at the gym.

    If you decided to use the media server make sure your songs are all pre-tagged prior to uploading them on. It makes life a lot easier.

    It's a good NAS. A lot better than the first gen ones that were out. It has a nice small footprint for 2TB. The webased software for the NAS is easy to use and the updates are similar to updating a modem or router. I can't complain really.
    Right I'll keep that in mind. I just took a look at the WD 2go app. Looks functional and neatly done. I'll probably use it mainly for video streaming. Looks promising. Thanks for all the info..appreciate it.

    Hey Laura. I think this is the first time I caught you in this thread. I thought about picking up those headphones too. Oh man, it's like my amazon wishlist is being revealed here

    I don't play many games these days. I just never got into them much. Oh well. Maybe one day when I actually have some time I'll see what all the fuss is about. LOL!

    Cool. I got the Monster/Nokia Purity In ears after seeing what MSFTisMIA had to say about them. I was deciding between the S4 w/ mic and those. How do you like the sound quality on the S4?

    In my heart I'm still a gamer, but when I'm actually playing I just get bored very fast. Even when playing the games that seem perfect for my taste. That's the reason why I bought a 3DS, it's a cheap device, you don't need any peripherals and when I have the urge to play I can play games I loved when I was young.

    I still think this was a good solution, makes more sense than buying an expensive gaming machine I use for Word and Facebook. (I don't have Facebook, but you know what I mean.)

    I want to cut down a bit on my game time. But gaming is just one of those few things that can help clear my mind. I'm finding Civ V quite the stress reliever

    I loved Civ IV and played it an incredible amount of time. I couldn't wait for Civ V, but then never got into it. It just didn't have the same feeling for me, and also even in the beginning the turns took forever to be calculated, what annoyed me terribly...

    Yeah that's a fair comment. I've seen a lot of Civ veterans not really like Civ V. For me it was my first Civ game, so I didn't really have a basis to compare to the earlier games. I enjoy it. Used to play with my friend if he's on, also sometimes play with my uncle.

    That puts you even more in the casual gamer corner ;-)

    I prefer to have buttons and a device that does not get hot as much. But I love Jetpack Joyride and enjoy Angry Birds.

    I'm more than just a casual gamer. If I played any less I wouldn't be classified as a gamer.

    Well I sort of did the same thing. I'm experimenting between HPS lights and LED lights. I'm also using new software so I had redo things a couple of times. Finally got the results I wanted.

    The only game I play with any regularity on my phone is Alphajax. My RT has become my primary device for mobile gaming.

    Now I've got the beast running at home I can get back into some decent RTS games.

    I usually play Angry Birds. I had the first version and finished that so now I'm redoing the levels on the new version. :P

    Other than that I'm into puzzle games. I haven't tried any of the higher end games yet.

    I got the star wars version - got a little way through it, got bored haven't played it for months - did the same with cut the rope, I tend to go through puzzle games pretty quickly. Think I did all 300 levels of Flow free in a week playing 30 minutes a day. Prefer playing PinballFX2 on the surface the star wars tables never get old.

    I would like to get a bit more of an action game. I don't want to pay a fortune for it though as I probably won't play it that often. Is PinballFX2 on WP? I don't own a Surface.

    Action games on mobiles just don't appeal to me mainly due to screen size and battery life. Pinball is only on xbox and W8/RT at the moment - don't think there are any plans to port it to WP, at least I haven't heard anything.

    Oh well. I'll just see what trials are around and try some different games to see what appeals to me. I have no issue with mobile games. I do wish though that WP8 supported Bluetooth HID though.
