  1. The Random Bits of Football Chit Chat Thread

    And a nice article about Roy Hodgson. I had no idea he was a local boy. Or that he was a teacher!
  2. The Random Bits of Football Chit Chat Thread

    Interesting article, but considering many of the teams would be bankrupt and no longer playing, what alternative is there? Billionaires and multi-millionaires buying clubs for a play-thing is a better alternative than those clubs not existing. But you do have to wonder why those with the money choose to lose most of it on football clubs and deal with the eventual hate from the fans. Running a football club is not a sensible way to invest money. PSG buying a feeder team is clearly designed to benefit only Zahavi - you can see Mouscron going to the wall once PSG lose interest. Or it would be used to avoid fair play rules by using accounting gimmicks such as having Mouscron buy an expensive player then sell him on to PSG for tuppence. The next article made me laugh, though: If your club is going to be owned by a foreign investor, cross your fingers it's not a Yank!

    Also, Face ID and... twins? Wonder how that's gonna work out.
  4. The What's Going on at Apple Thread

    (Ok you don't need Face ID to make emergency calls, but I wonder how well it copes when the owner has a black eye, or a bit too much makeup etc. There's always the backup code, I suppose.)

    Looks like it's still supported in X: https://developer.apple.com/ios/human-interface-guidelines/user-interaction/3d-touch/
  6. The Champions League Thread

    Looking forward to the response from UEFA/FIFA... my guess: nothing. Now if this was an English club... instant fan ban from Europe, if not the club.
  7. The What's Going on at Apple Thread

    I find this design particularly daft: It puts limitations on what can appear in those areas (ie. not very much) and looks crap/annoying in full screen/landscape apps. However you know what the next "magical" "innovation" will be, just as soon as Apple have "invented" the technology. Or bought the little-known company.

    Fad or faff? I agree accurate placement is a PITA which can render wireless charging little better than cable-based charging, which is why I have a Panasonic QE-TM101 where accurate placement is not required - just drop it and forget it. I'd love to see "whole desk" charging but that will require dozens if not hundreds of individual transmitter coils, so unlikely to happen (although multiple coils could be useful for charging a laptop, perhaps). Most likely solution would be specific charge "zones" built in to furniture. At least now that the wireless charging "format war" is effectively over we might begin to see a little more innovation in that direction.

    The older iWatches used Qi charging, but in their infinite wisdom Apple "tweaked" the Qi standard so it only worked with their bases (allowing them to milk additional licence fees from third-parties). Maybe Apple included support in the new devices to also work with the old "tweaked" charge bases, but chances are the old iWatches will not work on new charge bases. Standards, eh? This would never have happened in Steves day. Tim Cook is going soft. I've already started a countdown until the first announcement from Starbucks about their new "Apple Certified wireless charging tables".

    Totally the same. Welcome to 2011, iSheeple! "No. 1 watch in the world" yeah, but we know why that is...
  11. The Football Transfer Rumours Thread

    Foyth is a 19 year old who has played hardly any first-team football, so as a signing he's an absolute unknown quantity. Llorente is a positive signing though, and improvements at the back is really what Spurs have needed. Still, at least you did better than Arsenal!
  12. The Football Transfer Rumours Thread

    The window shuts (although still another 24 hours for Spanish clubs to bother Liverpool). Apparently Barkley snubbed Chelsea after passing a medical - thank God for that! Another average player, not sure why we're even talking to players of that calibre! Maybe he looked at the players ahead of him and realised he wasn't going to be first choice.
  13. The Football Transfer Rumours Thread

    Llorente to Spuds is apparently a done deal. That Levy, he loves his last minute deals!

    Hazard is back! Scores for Belgium tonight. Fear him, losers.
  15. The Football Transfer Rumours Thread

    Didn't Coutinho put in a transfer request? I wonder how happy he'll be having to stay in Liverpool when he could be paying much less on his home contents insurance in Barcelona.
