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...

I'm sick of seeing Albert Einstein promoting Smart Meters. Yes, he researched Mass-Energy Equivalence, but he did more than that

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

The last time I saw a The Body Shop and it actually registered in my consciousness was when I was in Seoul a few years back - but it was in Myeong-dong, which is home of many a flagship cosmetics shop, so it was a particularly big and swanky one. I guess Lush has supplanted it as a home-grown eco-c...

Ditching Spotify for me. I like Spotify, it's a decent service, but I have all the music i listen to downloaded or on physical media. I use my old phone as an Music player, and it just sounds better.

Re: Media Talk Forum Watch News and Information Board

Well, I figured I would 'sign up' to see the hubbub, but this is perhaps one of the worst sign up processes that I have seen in my life. 'Ask for my parent/guardian's permission'? Send an email to whom? Guys, this is just ludicrous.

Re: Fragrances

I have moved away from usng spray deodrants like Lynx, as I prefer roll ons, and feel they work better for me. However, I have been using Mitchum Men Ice Fresh as my go-to Anti-perspirant. The stuff smells good, and the girlfriend likes it. With it, I also wear a few sprays of Bespoke London Sweet S...

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Have Poundland shops been closing in your parts? We've had 3 close in recent times near me. Liverpool's Queen's Square shop, St Helens' Church Street Shopping Centre, and the one in Huyton.

Re: Public Transport in your particular part of the region

Since no one has commented on it, the Government has urged Train Operators to scrap plans to close Ticket Offices. Which is interesting, because it was the Government's plans to close them in the first place. There was little interest from the operators in mass closures until they were instructed t...
