Is that on wireless or wired connection? The wired connection was always good but wireless could be very poor, as low as 3Mb. I now have an Airport Extreme connected to the modem and 2 airport expresses as wireless extenders and audio streamers. speediest right now gives

My ISP does not even offer anywhere near that sort of speed, I am using BT and they say 26MB is the maximum I can get, The wireless connection is around 250MB but the broadband connection is at best 20, Is this your wireless network speed or your internet download speed?

The above figures are the connection speed. Download speeds vary enormously

I'm going to have to go into a apple store
Airport Express just wirelessly receives an audio signal from the PC/Mac. You plug the express into an amplifier and speakers (like I installed in my bathroom ceiling) or into an input of an existing stereo.

If you buy AirPlay compatible speakers they already include Express capabilities. I have 1 ATV, 2 Expresses and one AirPlay speaker.

Here's my set up from a couple years ago, expanded that into the garage now.....or will do once I finish the garage.

On the MacMini, yes, just HDMI it into your TV and buy a keyboard and touchpad(or mouse) and you're up and running.

I'm close to pulling the trigger on a 42mm apple watch but debating between the silver face or black face.

Has anyone bought any after market straps as I'm looking at the Hoco 316 stainless strap at £30 as oppose to the apple version at £300 ish?

It's the sport one I'm looking at asi can't justify the black stainless with black metal strap if I'm honest.

I've just had a text to say it will be delivered tomorrow. Bloody well would be when no one is home!

I looked at the black sport. But when I had a try on appt I wasn't overly enamoured with the band (yes I know it can be changed) but i really like the lightweight feel of the stainless steel one (didn't have a space black to try). Also I wanted the sapphire crystal glass.

The Ion-X glass doesn't impress me as my iPhone 6 Plus got quite a few minor scratches all over it. It's the only iPhone that ever has too so this put me off.

Hmmm interesting mate thanks. I have had my brothers black sport on and I quite like it but I did pick your exact one as the one I wanted before I saw the prices. I thought the sport was lighter than the watch???
