Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Are they the Android-based ones? They're the ones I've used most recently in M&S and Asda, though the Asda one seemed to occasionally fail to beep on scanning. Altering the quantity wasn't too difficult though. The ones at asda are garbage. They're the same hardware as the second gen Tesco ones...

Re: The Tesco & other non-Morrisons supermarket thread

Do we think this ‘just walk out’ setup is the future? It feels to me a little like CFL lightbulbs. Sold as being the future but probably not what ends up being used. I’d love to see the findings from the trials we’ve already seen. What technology exists that could scan the contents of your trolley ...

Re: Visa (Credit) not everywhere you want to be

Interesting you should mention the US cdd, and costs for cards/cash - I know during my travels in the US some gas stations had different prices for cash and credit. I'm surprised that people are kicking off and screaming they'll go elsewhere, why just not using another card? Do people really just re...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Is the monitor showing your face some sort of psychological trick to make you think twice about shoplifting?

Cafe Rouge now wants to become simply Rouge. Perhaps the French brasserie pastiche isn't working so well after all..

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

even if it's longer contracts with the networks then that doesn't seem to make any difference either as EE have breached their contract by pulling out of Phones 4U a year early Not true. EE informed phones4u that they would not be renewing their contract - they didn't renege on the existing one. Vo...

Re: Masks

I will mask up if the place is really busy, there are lots of people and is severely enclosed. However, I tend to visit the supermarket when there's less people anyway - late on weekend evenings/weekdays. I don't bother with masks times like these, since there is no benefit. I have no problem with p...

Re: Public Transport in your particular part of the region

Wow, has the pandemic finished off Stagecoach? National Express in talks to buy them. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-58636437 I like the two photos in that article - one with the new National Express coach, the other with a Stagecoach bus taken circa 15 years ago. That wouldn't have been as no...

Re: Energy bills: How spanked will YOU get?

I'm with Octopus and am fixed until Jan 22. Hopefully things will have calmed down by then. I have never understood the government's obsession with wanting to get everyone off gas, considering that it costs nearly 4x as much per kwh to use. Plus, electric stoves (in my experience) are never as good ...

Re: AM Radio Poll

I still isten to 5 live on 909 AM, for what it's worth I rarely tune in (only for large football matches like Euros or breaking news) I'm happy to live with the telephone quality audio. Does the job, and content is king when it comes to speech radio. it's just not worth the hassle of ripping out and...

Re: The Very Official McDonalds (and other fast food outlets) Thread

I think essentially Covid has been a great excuse for companies to do away with things they can’t be arsed doing / stocking any more. Doing away with cash has been great for us in my work. Other than the occasional wibblers who kick up a fuss, it’s miles easier, has reduced queuing time, pretty muc...
