Good news! I've got a job with @AmazonVideoUK. Bad news! So have the other two. #AmazonPrime #ItSaysHere

Downside is Amazon doesn't work with apple or chrome devices.

Amazon and MS tend to be platform agnostic. They want people to use their software and don't care about the hardware.

Apple and Google often go a different way.

i meant AppleTV and Chromecast.  I assume you could stream from an "i" device to either though?

there would be no better name for the new show than "Gear Knobs"

The new top gear aftershow has chris harris on it. I don't know why he isn't a part of the main show. He would be a great reviewer of sports cars. I'd also like to see more Sabine Schmitz. Eddie Jordan is great and needs more of him. Sadly the two I don't like most are the main presenters.

Top Gear USA has been cancelled.  I didn't realize it was still on.

Chris Evans is leaving Top Gear.  That didn't last long.

Chris Harris should take over. This season had the best collection of sports cars ever tested by far.  I do feel that the 991.1 911R comparison to the 991.1 911 GT3 RS isn't correct. In the porsche world, everyone is comparing the 911R with the 997.2 GT3RS 4.0 which is pretty much the best of both the new 911R and the GT3RS.

the new show is called "The Grand Tour"  - Gear Knobs was so much better, but they couldn't use any part of the old title.
