Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

Perhaps time to wheel out this graphic (which I think I nicked from someone else here years ago)...

Re: The Technology Thread

Agree A series are perfectly competent devices. The standout feature of S series over A (and even Z) series for me is the quality of the camera. A and Z series phones have 'good', S series is 'great' (rule of thumb, I'm sure there are exceptions). I think OLED screens were a differentiator previous...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

Dare I say it but I'm inclined to complement the mods/admin for allowing the recent Radio 1 and The Nine discussion to flow without any obvious interruption. Whilst I'm sure they've been reading and monitoring those threads any actions (e.g. moving thread into different forum) has been 'light touch'...

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

A few years ago I axed Virgin Media to cut costs, as I was fed up of paying a premium for what essentially was the ability to record the basic Freeview channels. Previously I'd do the old 'phone up asking to disconnect' trick when out of contract to get an offer from retentions. Moving from Virgin M...

Re: The rise of the dodgy shop

It's notable when some of those shops have a notice on the door/window stating "CASH ONLY". Definitely no chance of a tax dodge there.

Re: Media Talk Forum Watch News and Information Board

Purely out of interest, what did you think about moderation at the blue and purple places? If you don't know my views on the blue place, you must be extremely young and very new here. Well I thought the mods & admin were always well liked, and very popular over here and never criticised. In unr...

Re: Fragrances

In the past year after using up Xmas presents I've been buying https://saltoftheearthnatural.com/ sprays. As well as online they're sold in Holland & Barrett, and some were in TK Max earlier in the year. I like the use of natural ingredients, and that they are refillable.

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

I feel like the non-news side of the forum is really quiet these days. Major new Saturday night primetime show on BBC One with unusual presentation into the start of it - no posts apart from mine. Could in part be a reflection of the state of linear TV these days, which overall these days is somewh...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

It's a pretty shrewd way of getting The Range into the high street using an established brand in Wilko. No surprise that the Plymouth based company will open up two stores in Devon first in Exeter and er...Plymouth. I wonder if one of the two 'South East' openings will be a London store? Not sure w...

Re: The Barclays and other non-Lloyds/TSB Bank thread

Nationwide have rebranded. Their old logo was dated but the new branding has got a very 90s feel. They’ve taken the heavily stylised church behind the house out of their logo. I think that would have attracted the ire of the right-wing press a decade ago, but I suspect even they won’t care these da...

Re: What's going on with all this gender stuff?

As far as I can tell, a trans identity is understood to be any of the strands below, each building on the one above - for simplicity, since we're both guys, let's assume we are referring to me going through a male to female transition: 1. I tell you that I feel like I am a women, but make no change...
