    I managed to get my iPad to upgrade to IOS 7 after a lot of waiting & messing. It's jumbled my icons up so I can't find anything but the new look apps have a modern feel to them finally.

    One suggestion someone made already once you have upgraded is to check your settings for advertising.
    Settings >> Privacy >> Advertising >> Limit Ad Tracking - Turn on (slider to right which turns green)

    Hmmm apart from the Toys'r'Us icons, and the app layouts being different seems like business as usual.

    I wen't all in and upgraded my desktop PC to Windows 8 last week as well :shifty:

    I quite like my Toys'r'us phone apart from the fact I apperntly have 60 unread emails that are not there to read :shifty:

    Windows 8 - Work of the devil :mad: bring back windows XP :D

    It's growing on me, but not desperately logical. Windows XP running on the hardware I have for running 8 would be instantaneous... Give me that product please Microsoft, I don't care if it's not pretty!

    My ipad has just let me know that 7.0.2 is now available to download... Seems to be security fixes to stop people bypassing your lock codes.
