Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

Another new interface for the Sainsbury’s self-checkouts at my local Local. Very plain but it works. Interesting, was it like this ? I was so taken aback I can't recall the detail, but I don't think the buttons were in the same place at the end of the transaction. Also, the Sainsbury's one seemed t...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

Another new interface for the Sainsbury’s self-checkouts at my local Local. Very plain but it works. Plain white background, orange text, with your goods already scanned listed down the right hand side. Gone are the floating animations as you scan, fewer graphics and logos/colours, but thankfully a ...

Re: Baffling local news stories

I know local papers have faced a tough time against advertising spend going elsewhere, and people not buying hard copies any more, but the reaction from Johnston Press has reached a new level of insanity lately. I rarely read the site, so going on to the Edinburgh Evening News today was a bit of a s...

Just another reason not to bother with The Newsroom.
Are you telling me you're not interested in knowing where forumers keep their bags when they're at work?

(It's all becoming so tedious...)

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

WHSmith - Just one to keep on the radar. Possible management/HO structure changes and closing of least profitable stores as leases end. Travel doing well. I see the Travel stores are continuing to do well, but somewhat worrying when you reference sales of spoof humour books as being important to yo...

Re: The Unofficial Sainsbury's Thread

Is the "new" self-checkout interface, as seen in Locals, ever going to make it everywhere? I noticed the older version, in use at supermarkets, has had an update in a store I go to for SmartScan or Smartshop or something - a new button on the screen. This means normal shoppers now have to press 'Sta...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

This seems to be a thing with architect drawings of shopping centres, blatantly using a logo but altering it slightly. It does increase the realism significantly. One of Dundee's shopping centres is planning a revamp and its plans included a sign for "Waganoodle" amongst others Ah, finally found th...

Cashzone ATMs

Maybe this is purely a local/regional expansion or something, but I've noticed these green Cashzone ATMs popping up in a lot of places on my occasional travels around Scotland. Is this the same elsewhere? I can't recall seeing this this brand at all until about six months ago. The ATMs I've noticed ...

Re: The Unofficial Smart Speaker Owners' Thread

I'm sorry, I don't understand this thread. :lol: On a semi serious note, I find myself being taken in by my Google Home and now feel like a beta tester, shouting "Send feedback" a lot and telling the developers what went wrong and how to improve it. Eg, I can't take the bus to work that you've offe...

Re: Crying over buying milk

Well, I knew something had changed when I picked up some milk but didn't realise it was the Wiseman name disappearing. On the packaging, I notice the cow print remains but a swirly font and terrible "Müllerlicious" tagline has been added: https://up.metropol247.co.uk/scottishtv/muller_milk.jpg Also,...

Re: ***THE OFFICIAL ALL NEW SAFEWAY THREAD***

Will Sainsbury's still go ahead with Nisa deal or will they now pull out.? Interesting. I wonder whether Morrisons made McColls a deal they couldn't refuse, just to see this sort of outcome? According to some reports, McColl's tendering process was stopped early, and the speed of the deal took Nisa...
