    I too believe Maplin should employ SET graduates and sell everything for peanuts.

  3. The Premier League Thread

    Net spend arguments are probably the most boring thing in football. Even more boring than Roy Hodgson or Sam Alladyce.
  4. The Premier League Thread

    Wot u on abar? They've got a clean sheet more than every other game this season! 5 or 6 on the trot before last night.
  5. The What's Going on at Apple Thread

    It's shocking that the High Sierra root access bug hasn't been more widely in the news. Surely it has to go down as one of the bigger blunders in recent computering times? The flaw is pretty bad in the first instance, but then it was known about in the wild for a couple weeks, but it had to hit more mainstream lines before Apple did anything about it.
  6. Android apps track you

    Yeah, the same one that's in most of the others that make up the story. But it tracks you none the less.
  7. Android apps track you

    Well Apple Music is one of the Apps they've listed with a Tracker so...

    I love how the most easiest and best things in the world that couldnt be easier or betterer, are even easier and betterer as soon as the new way comes around.

    If the implementation is actually reliable, that is impressive and a step forward from a technical standpoint, but the's definitely a shoe horned in, tech for tech's sake element to it. In use it could work 110% perfectly 120% of the time, and still be a step back from fingerprint in many real world use cases.

  11. The Football Transfer Rumours Thread

    Nah, an awful lot are absolutely made up with the money we've got for him. Many even actually disliked him. I appreciated him being the best goalscorer I've seen play for us in my lifetime. But he's also pretty bad at football. I'll be surprised if he doesn't score more than any Chelsea player this coming season, existing or yet to be signed. But at the same time, even if he gets leading score for the next 5 years, they'll still be united fans who dislike him. Because he's an absolute footballing enigma. Still young though, so he may end up as good as anyone.

    Good stuff! Now to choose the car seat!
  13. Last thing you purchased

    My Touran was 5 seater. If you're happy to look at used, the 5 seaters can be had for less than 7 if you can track one down. Edit: I had the Touran a few years a go, so dont hold me to them STILL making a 5 seat version! Edit 2: I think I miss read your post. I *think* the boot size difference between 5 and 7 seat version is only in height. So if the boot depth wasnt enough for you, then an estate is the only real option I think!

    The thing with some of these bigger cars posted is a lot of the 'biggerness' is wasted nose space. You've got say a Touran which is not actually massively bigger overall to your golf, but is ginormous inside, because the nose is so short and the back is completely flat. I loved the Touran when I had one, as did my Mrs. Mazda should never have stopped making the Mazda 5 it was an excellent large/medium family moving mobile. And congrats!

  18. The Samsung Galaxy S8 Thread

    What sort of screen on time is 2-3 charges based on Rvn?
  19. The Premier League Thread

    Weird, I've not really noticed Utd being particularly worse than anyone else this season with diving? I do remember earlier in the season Spurs frustrating teams with with going down easily (not all out diving) and lots of petty little fouls, killing any momentum the opposition may have built. It was pretty effective actually.
  20. Getting a new boiler, buying Nest

    Controlling individual radiators is great, particularly if there's generally only 2 or 3 people in your house.
  21. The Samsung Galaxy S8 Thread

    Are them leaked pics of the rear still assumed to be correct? With the camera and fingerprint sensor right next to each other? "WHY WONT IT UNLOCK?", "WHY ARE MY PHOTOS BLURRY?"
  22. Not colour screen, but better contrast and no manufacturer warranty or parts, but the pebble 2 could still be an option if you're fully aware of the limits. They've said the servers will be up til 2018, and there's already user created alternatives to some of the services. I wouldn't rule it out just because pebble are dead, but you'd definitely need to know what you're buying in to before you do. Another thing to think about is if fitbit use any of the pebble tech to bring out a new watch in the next couple years.
  23. Getting a new boiler, buying Nest

    Yeah, mine wasnt marked up at all! There were more wires terminating on the plate than I was expecting and a chocolate block connector thrown in there that I could only just about fit in the space. Luckily I was just refitting the wires in the same place on a new back plate, so I managed it!
  24. Getting a new boiler, buying Nest

    I replaced my ancient boiler controller with a 2 channel Zwave controller at the weekend. While the pin outs on my old controller's wall plate were the same, the wallplate itself was too fat for the new controller to fit, so I had to rewire it in the end anyway. Was straight forward enough though. My heating was already automated with a Zwave wireless thermostat anyway, so all this new programmer means is I dont have to reset the hotwater schedule on the ancient programmer anymore after the electric has been off, and I can turn the hotwater on from my phone if needs be. So now my heating is automated with a couple of StellaZ's reporting room temperatures and controlling individual radiators on a schedule, one of these as the sort of master control for boiler. And one of these TINY multisensors in the babies room, overriding everything. The room stat speaks directly to the boiler control, so even if my zwave network went down I'd still have thermostatic control, I'd just lose the scheduling/presence detection.
