Those were momentary diversions for specific stories &ndash; this time, it&rsquo;s for good.</p> <p>Why? Because technology has changed, society has changed, and Stuff&rsquo;s audience has changed. We asked you what you wanted a Stuff cover to look like in focus groups. We trialled model-free covers for three months of this year in selected regions of the UK. The answer was unanimous: you want covers that reflect the content of the magazine, and pictures of a model simply don&rsquo;t.</p> <p>I hope that in making this change we&rsquo;ll remove any barriers to reaching the whole of Stuff&rsquo;s potential audience. Technology is universal, but pictures of models aren&rsquo;t universally appealing.</p> <p>I also hope that you&rsquo;ll agree that this is the right thing for Stuff to do. We don&rsquo;t take decisions like these lightly: we know how passionately regular readers feel about the Stuff brand, and we care greatly about what you think.</p> <p>So, do let me know below how you feel about Stuff going model-free &ndash; and as always, enjoy the magazine and website.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/august-issue-out-now/news-0">The August issue is out

But while a large portion of TVs now include 3D as standard, when was the last time you donned your cumbersome specs to watch something on the UK&#39;s one 3D TV channel? TV manufacturers have moved onto 4K as the next big thing, the LG Optimus 3D and HTC Evo 3D represent the only attempts to get 3D phones into our pockets.</p> <p><strong>We said:</strong> &quot;Regardless of the size and resolution of your TV, a more immersive experience is guaranteed by a technology that allows the terrifying girl from <em>The Ring</em> to crawl out of it and across your living room.&quot;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="3D TV (2009-)" alt="3D TV (2009-)" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/3D-tv.jpg?1395452869" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-11"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Microsoft Zune (2006) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Microsoft was a latecomer to the MP3 player party, launching its Zune player after Apple&#39;s iPod had already racked up 100m sales. Available in an rainbow of hues from pink to, er, brown, the first generation model struggled to gain market share against the Apple juggernaut. The final iteration, the Zune HD, was a perfectly fine music player, but by that time the damage was done &ndash; it never even made it to UK shores. But it lives on in some form, with the Zune HD interface lending its design style to Microsoft&#39;s Windows Phone OS.</p> <p><strong>We said: </strong>&quot;Microsoft&#39;s Zune doesn&rsquo;t ooze the iPod&rsquo;s svelte sexiness, but inside that boxy casing beats a high tech heart with a state-of-the-art user interface, wireless networking, radio and a killer screen for movies.

But it was plagued by delays, and by the time it emerged, the damage was done; its roster of apps was pitifully small compared to Apple, or even Android, and it never gained traction. Still, Palm&#39;s WebOS lives on &ndash; in a gorgeous-looking TV from LG.</p> <p><strong>We said:</strong> &quot;It&rsquo;s official: the iPhone is no longer the sexiest phone on the block.
