No problems loading on my Macpro, I'm not keen on the new green colour but I like the grayish blue, the dark colours look better against all the black body mouldings, maybe full colour will be an option. I must say I really like the new dash style, I looked at the similar dash layout in a new Auris recently and the finish was very very good.

viewing it on my 32" smart tv , all good apart from the 3D button, i treated myself to a new tv

Edit.....neither my Vista desk top ( 4 yrs old ),or Samsung new smart tv will work with that 3D 720 world button....very frustrating.

And just as we've got BT B.band now,brand new home hub 3,but still only 4mbps.....countryside village living for you !.

4mbps is cracking for "in the sticks". I barely scraped 1mbps for years and that's after a few tweaks and lots of effort.

(That is before "infinity" came to our village and I now have 30mbps!!!)

We're going to get pulled for being "off topic", but with everything correctly wired indoors and no line faults outside- it's purely down to the distance you are from your local telephone exchange.

I'm five miles from mine, (which is very far believe it or not) 80% of the population are probably within two miles of their local exchange. Even if you're in a little village miles from anywhere, you could be close to your local!

Then there's yer fibre optic stuff- different rules.

Less than half a mile from local exchange.....copper wires.......2.5 to 3.0mbs (BT LINE) according to very helpful Sky operative who refused to take my money as he could see no reason for me to change. Can actually stand ootside exchange and prove it is only part digital......can still hear the chatter of the old selectors / contactors.....nae kiddin'.....only part digitised 7 miles from Glasgow CITY CENTRE,,,,,!!!!

Well, since we've gone this far off topic ... :)

About 5km / 3 miles from the exchange + reasonably rubbish copper wires (mix of underground and overhead) couple with wet and windy weather = 480kbps over Christmas ... and at that speed the 'play site' doesn't really work.

And I've more chance of getting a 200 bhp D-CAT in a 4.4 than FTTC round here! :)

As is not wellknown, I live in Uddingston. You can guess that from my title! Had to move out of Bothwell as too many drug barons (is that a car??).

Anyway, my beloved now dead father designed Uddingston Telephone exchange when he worked for Plessey in Liverpool in the early 1960s. It still stands but has been modernised in that the old Strowger system was replaced by a newer (SystemX ?) process. I await the incoming faster speed system but no holding breath. When we were with BT in my house the noo - within 600 cable yards of the exchange - we'd so many problems with the BT line. I kept with Telewest/Virgin Businesswhich seems to run well on a mixture of optical cable and co-axial. 20mb download and 1mb upload with a supposed 50mb coming next year they told me.

Mind you its not cheap as we also get 8000 television channels so I can't afford to keep enough 50p coins dropping into the meter. Not so bad as I get a feed from the neighbours exterior lights at nightime - downside is I have to walk along the front of his house every 10 minutes. Used a number of excuses, but "admiring yer nasturtiums" led to the polis getting called, along wi the psychiatrist on call.

Anyway back to topic and watched the video. It ran so fast I had trouble keeping up, even wi the specs on.... a RAV wi 5 doors and wan o them a top hinge?! Recipe fur disaster.

Oh well, here are some images captured from the 720 thing. You can spin the car around and it changes colour and scares animals etc!

That was fun!

Loaded ok on my Windows 7 i3 processor desktop pc. (Virgin BB) Took just over a minute to change the RAV colour on the 3D bit.

I can see where Toyota is going with this all new RAV4, I've checked out the YouTube stuff too, but I still like the look of my 4.2 better!

I remember back in 2000 when the 4.2 was launched, I fell in love with it instantly. I could identify it as 'a RAV4'. But I'm struggling to like this new one.

How does it effect you fellas?

I've always considered the 3 door 4.2 as being the ultimate example of how a RAV should look. I also rather like the 4.1 3 door.

As for this new one, I suppose it is a fairly predictable evolution. It shadows the CRV as its main rival and it will include all the bits and bobs to bring it up to date. No doubt somebody is out wrecking some to gain NCAP 5 stars and it will meet the latest emmission standards. I have ridden in a new CRV and in petrol form it is very smooth and quiet. I expect the RAV to be similar. I don't mind the look but I can't make my mind up about the dash. It seems a bit Mini Clubman (1977 vintage) with the open glove box. The CRV is much nicer. I need to go and sit in one and touchy feel it before I can come to a conclusion.

I will get invited to the launch night at RRG when it comes.

As for the Toyota site itself, I'm impressed, very slick.
