    I want to know how well they control. I want to download tetris but I am skeptical as to how well it will play with the wheel. I also really want to get that mini golf game but I don't want to waste the money if it is a sub-par product.

    No, but I noticed something worth mentioning?

    I just downloaded and installed iTunes. During the installer, when you click "Customize", there's an option for installing an "iTunes Phone Driver". WHERE'S OUR ITUNES PHONE?!?!

    :rolleyes:

    Or is this the stupid driver for the ROKR still? Hmm...

    It's probably an update for the razr as motorola/cingular announced itunes support for the new razr today.

    Not too weird. They were announced today. Less than 4 hours ago. You buy them for $4.99 in the iTunes Store. They only work on 5G iPods, and you have to have firmware 1.2 which was also released today.

    I just downloaded Tetris, Mahjongg, Texas Hold-Em and Mini Golf. Tetris and Mahjongg seem to play OK. Haven't tried Mini-Golf and Texas Hold-Em yet - still at work :mad:

    I downloaded Tetris. I was surprised by how 'advanced' it is. I was expecting something like the built-in games. It's full of colorful full motion graphics, along with sound effects, music, a menu with various options, various play modes etc. As for the control, it's a little tough. I think mostly I'm just not used to it. I'm not sure I would have used the scroll wheel. I probably would have made FWD and REV move the piece, the center button turn it, and the play/pause button drop it. As it is, you use the scroll wheel to move pieces, FWD/REV to turn them, and the center button and play/pause to drop pieces. Overall, it's quite nicely done, and while I don't plan to buy any more games from those currently available, I will consider buying other games in the future.
