Re: The Technology Thread

How about something like this? Gives you a 3.5mm output and you can still charge too. https://amzn.eu/d/0jViC0T Another potential solution for that case is a wireless charging mat (I have one as a backup in case my USB port packs up). For better or worse, the direction of travel on this is clear. S...

Re: The Technology Thread

Over in the Android world, last time I replaced my phone a few years ago I opted for an S10 even though the S20 and S21 had both been released by then. Mainly because I really wanted to keep a 3.5mm audio jack and and the S10 was still better than any then new Samsung handset which had one and at t...

Re: With all the recent inflationary price rises, is there stuff you just won’t pay for now?

Virgin Media, waited for the contract to *actually* expire then had a proper go at them. The CityFibre rollout means they can no longer call my bluff on moving to Sky "you'll be happy with 34mb will you?" Now have gigabit and still (some) tv for £45. And the Superhub 5 is actually decent ...

£15 :o

I spend less than half that and I feel like that's an indulgence given what £4 buys these days.

Re: With all the recent inflationary price rises, is there stuff you just won’t pay for now?

I haven't had Sky since 2017 when I moved house. They wanted me to commit to a 12 month contract with a less than 50% discount (which is essentially what I'd had since joining in 2010), which I wasn't willing to do. My intention was to wait it out for the inevitable follow up calls/offers, or maybe ...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

Nothing wrong with the policy though. If it has the TV Ark logo on it for example, and it's not from TV Ark or it's associated social media channels, then of course it should be removed. That watermark they use is there for a reason. If they replace the video link like for like, then fine, idc If t...

Re: The rise of the dodgy shop

Not entirely on topic, but as vape shops were mentioned in the post, it has me thinking, what's going to happen to them? By the end of the year they're going to find 95%+ of their products banned, and what remains put in plain packaging and behind the counter, I'm guessing it won't be a viable busi...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

The policy on removing links to content 'websnatched' is a real PITA, especially as they don't then replace the link with one which relates to the 'source' the content was originally "snatched" from...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

I like to think the people who say they miss being able to shop for Pick n' Mix the most whenever the latest high street chain goes bust are the same people who in every survey done say they want more high brow programming about culture and the arts, and less programming like Jeremy Kyle. Of course...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

I’m not convinced anyone actually bought pick n mix from Woolworths to be honest. It was just there. You'd be lucky to get a look in for a scoop in Nottingham on Saturdays or during half term, the place was always full of kids filling up cups on their way to the cinema and whatnot. Wilko was the sa...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Good luck to them, although German Woolies are a bit of a different beast to what UK customers were used to - I suppose closer to Home Bargains/B&M. Maybe that's what Woolies would be nowadays had they continued.
