Re: Another High Street Rebrand

I don't know if it's just because your brain instantly recognises the English letters and, therefore, focusses on them rather than the arrow, but I always notice the arrow far quicker in the Arabic version. http://imgs.xkcd.com/comics/subliminal.png edit: link added because the image was too big!

Re: McDonalds 1955 Burger;

...Unless you are ever up in this area and come across a Ribble Valley Inns. They're mostly in Lancashire although there is one near Skipton and they are pretty amazing! They were opened by Michelin starred chef Nigel Haworth and they've done a good job of carrying through the successful restaurant ...

Re: New Facebook

At the start of the timeline video, I was quite impressed. I think I'd still be impressed if a friend had put it together himself on a personal website as a demonstration of some web technologies, but I'm struggling to see its usefulness in facebook. Once everybody has a timeline profile, I think it...

Re: Google+

While I still have an account, I stopped using it when the android app crept to an obese 12mb, taking up valuable.desire storage space. It's not even like the app did anything particularly clever either. It just sat there taking up space! Although I thought plus could have been a good link between G...

Re: Old Pictures.... remember?

Even though I'm not originally from here, I love searching through the extensive archives at http://www.leodis.net for photos of Leeds. It's a shame the interface isn't brilliant and searching for anything in particular is somewhat cumbersome, but the sheer amount of photos and comments from communi...

Re: Tesco Image Thread (and other supermarkets)

If it's anything like Sainsbury's, it will be: - Press "Use my own bags" - Till appears to do nothing for 3-4 seconds making me jab at the screen again - It then commands you to put the bags on the bagging area scales, so I put my two bags-for-life on the scales - 2-3 seconds pass as it 'weighs' th...

Re: The *OFFICIAL* Asda thread

My only problem with Asda is I can't rely on them for certain items. It could just be the area that my Asda is in, but it would be nice not to have to fall back on Sainsburys invariably. I don't really see the point in being open 24 hours if they don't stock the fruit and veg constantly, although th...

Re: The *OFFICIAL* Asda thread

Having been a loyal patron for 24 years I am really going off Asda. Last week the price of a Yazoo milkshake went up from 70p to £1 (a couple of years ago it was only 48p). I drink two of those per day so that's an extra £10 on my shopping bill each month alone. I can't bring myself to start shoppi...

Re: Yet another Morrisons thread

Thought I'd already mentioned this, but I can't see it so I must have imagined it. I went to the Maggie Mash branch of Morrisons a few months ago for the first time ever. The fresh food area certainly is striking when you walk in. Looks amazing, sadly once you go back to the other aisles, you still ...
