Re: Windows Phone 7

i've had the htc hd7 running wp7 for over six months ... and i hate it. - battery life is abysmal. - it might be pretty, but menus are unnecessarily animated, frustrating when you're in a hurry. - couldn't copy and paste until the update. - can't connect to wifi networks with hidden ssids (patronisi...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

I think the prognosis for the place in the long-term isnt great. Birmingham has a pretty complete portfolio of retail outlets (unlike Doncaster and Sheffield in the case of Meadowhall, which both have significant gaps), and has strengthened its position from what I gather was rather weak in the 90s...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

What's happened to the handful of Wal-Mart stores (that pre-date the ASDA takeover)? Minworth started life as a Carrefour and changed to a Wal-Mart in 1988 (I think), then in 1993 it was changed again to an 'ASDA * WAL*MART Supercenter' (yes, US English spelling of 'centre'), then they changed it f...

Re: Why is Census Question 17 Intentionally Left Blank?

however, inspector's original response to you still stands. asking the population of england whether they speak welsh is has as much value as asking us what our favourite colour is. the government is charged with the task of producing a survey that is as concise and as relevant as possible.

Re: Why is Census Question 17 Intentionally Left Blank?

What use would the question be for Welsh speakers in England? There's no laws here about the use of the Welsh language and neither will there ever be.

Re: Costco

If you are far too middle class for freezers, try going down to local markets. Sorry, I don't do markets. This is a dedicated costco thread, can we please stay on topic. Thanks. xx (I'll be honest, its more curiosity about non-food items e.g. dishwasher tablets and laundry powder rather than actual...
