Prometheus

It may be that my opinion is a little clouded but I enjoyed it over all. When I first saw Prometheus I saw it at an all night event at my local cinema showing each Alien film back to back including the prequal and I can honestly say in comparison to Alien 3 and 4 I thought it was a masterpiece - like I say though, it my be my mind is clouded from seeing all of the films and how long ago it was.

Maybe they are correct but I can't help but feel if these companies just kept the mouths shut it would serve them better and make them look more mature then whinging.

Re: If a phone is getting hot during backup/restore in iTunes

I am not overly concerened as I have not seen it get hotter at any other time since using it since then. I am however tempted to plug it in this weekend for a prolonged period of time and see if I can replicate it. If it does a trip to Apple may happen.
