Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Do we think this ‘just walk out’ setup is the future? It feels to me a little like CFL lightbulbs. Sold as being the future but probably not what ends up being used. I feel the same. I've given it a go at the Canary Wharf store, and found it a bit unpleasant. It's just the wrong side of the 'creepy...

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

It's so annoying to read and I'm sure I can't be the only one. I hadn’t noticed that, but have been very mildly irritated by the ever-increasing tendency for people to ask themselves questions rather than just making statements. Is it slightly annoying? Yes. Do I expect it to continue? Yes. Does it...

Perhaps we could take inspiration and rebrand Parceforce as Royal Mail Parcels and distinguish the letters service using the title Royal Mail Mail.

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

According to the website, “TNT will become FedEx Express”, which is distressingly tautological.

Re: Coronavirus - Strange times

The problem is that there are apparently three million over 50s/40s that don't want it. We can't be held to ransom by them, they have been offered the jab, if they get COVID and die it is their fault and their fault alone. The NHS should make preparation, and the gov should fund it in preparation f...

Re: Public Transport in your particular part of the region

Here in Newcastle, there are still load of buses advertising Little Mix: The Search as starting on 26 September. They must be getting on for a year old now, we’re certainly closer to 26 Sep 2021 than it is to when the series finished. I’m sure the BBC is delighted with this odd bit of pandemic distr...

Re: Bauer 'premium' stations – no ads, skip tracks

There's more on this on the Radio Today podcast. The live track "skipping" works by replacing whatever is playing with another streamed track, then re-joining the (slightly delayed) live feed at the point the "skipped" track ends. Quite a clever solution!

I also can’t taste any difference between the formulations, but then I’ll admit to being a complete heathen who can’t taste any difference between it and ‘proper’ coke either.

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

Have they paused Avios to Nectar conversion at the moment? I hear on the grapevine that they’re currently paused online. With many BA accounts still having old-style four digit PINs instead of passwords, they’re really quite hackable. This hasn’t previously been all that big an issue as most Avios ...

Re: TV Forum Watch News and Information Board

People who kudos a post which criticises them!? Don’t understand at all. I don’t think I’ve done this specifically on TVForum, but I think it’s context-specific. Giving kudos to a post which contradicts you to say “oh, I hadn’t thought of it in those terms” or “I stand corrected” or “good point” or...
