Emergency alerts

Some talk today about the government testing a new emergency notification system on phones, with a test on Android devices between 1-2pm today. Turns out there’s a whole website about the proposed service: https://www.gov.uk/alerts Anybody got an alert? Apparently it will sound the alert even when o...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

I’ve used Apple Pay on things like train ticket machines and vending machines, but I haven’t mustered the courage to use it in a transaction with another human being. Feels a bit show-offy and I can’t bear the embarrassment if it didn’t work!

It’s pretty cool though.

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

199 pages and nearly 3000 comments in one week, I do not envy the moderators of that thread. I wonder how many of those comments were just from Brekkie? I find it odd that considering he is so opposed to GB News that he posts in it quite regularly. I can think of at least one user (with a blue name...

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

Brekkie’s comment telling people not to “call out” minor issues with GB News because it distracts from bigger issues sounds a bit agenda driven to me, as if to say stop mentioning sound and camera faults as it means people are talking about that rather than focussing on the right wing content This ...

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

That’s not really political pisstaking is it? But just pointing out the repetitive topics of the channel.

I see James M is now attacking Rob on Twitter for the ban.

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

So a survey about a term being used for one of the channel's signature segments not even registering with much of the potential audience isn't discussion about the channel? Sorry, going to agree to disagree on that one. That would have been a good point. Unfortunately the post just said “I’m just g...

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

I think handing out a ban for a post about Woke Watch - which is a segment on the channel, how is that not a post about television presentation - is absurd. The content of that post was NOT about Woke Watch... it was about a YouGov survey about the word Woke. Nothing to do with the discussion of th...

Re: TV Live Forum Watch News and Information Board

Good heavens, I've not bothered going into that GB News thread at all, not pre-launch or post. I note VMPhil's point about politics being integral to any discussion of the channel but… I'm sure it's not a pleasant discussion to read. It’s actually been… OK. I think the technical side of it being mu...

Re: Adverts that irritate and entertain

Looks like the Asda family have been dropped from the latest advert.
