    OK Iíll take a look thanks. I understand skins and plugins.

    Presumably Material is purely cosmetic and adds no functionality. Just asking . . . no flames please.

    Yes and No
    Itís cosmetic but adds better integration with MAI and is usable with any mobile or tablet which the default skin isnít

    Thanks Michael, Jim, and Danny for writing to him! I notice he's updated to Material himself ("SqueezeLiteDARKO"). Too bad the original article is not updated, but at least the letters page is offered as "Next article / Letters to the editor: Squeezebox, Dutch & Dutch & more". I ought to write him about an error he made on another product review.
