Also can I get a decent add blocker any where?

No virus scanner needed it's a waster of resources.The only reason you use one if you use pirated software.

You can always change the icons if you need to.

Plus I would always prefer android over apple so I don't have to mess with iTunes.

You can change about anything in Android, especially if you root it. But since it's a media player I'm sure it's not running on stock Android, but OEM themed crap.

Anywhere still selling Chromecasts for less than retail? Shouldn't have slept on the hype a couple of months back.

The back of my z2 seems to have cracked by itself without dropping, seems like it's happened to a fair few others too after googling, anyone else had this?

It's a known issue, but I'm not sure if Sony acknowledges it yet. Contact your service center.

Its because you may have deactivated sync, it should be on as standard.

Don't think they're doing it like that or at least I don't see any invites I can send out. It's not hard to get though, just request an invite. Had mine within like 2-3 days of requesting.

Cheers just downloaded it and it seems to work now. Didn't last week when I tried and was never sent an invite after requesting one.

Auto sync in accounts is turned on, is that what you mean?

You need to go to the Email settings>Incoming server and change the delete email from server to when I delete from inbox, Now when the email is deleted on your device inbox it gets deleted from the server to.
