Reg readers scuffle over the ultimate cuppa

jim parker

I'm not a great lover of tea but occasionally enjoy a cup of twinings english breakfast tea made in my tassimo machine ( the machine worries about time and temperature and does a good job) with a little semi-skimmed milk and sugar.

bbc universal basic

I haven't read all the millions of comments but, in case no-one has mentioned it, the BBC came up with a universal basic and transmitted programs in it on radio.

The idea was you recorded it and loaded it into your bbc, commodore or sinclair machine (whatever models where about at that time - VIC20 I think I had then) but I never managed to get any to work.

Electronics manufacturers

All manufacturers, eg sony, philips, of domestic items such as stereos, clock radios which come with an ipod dock as almost all of them do now.

I don't have or want an ipod as I am more than happy with my sony mp3 player and I am sure many others are the same so why do these people encourage apple in its bid to take over the world especially as they are often competitors?

Be that as it may, in your official capacity as language police could you arrange to severely chastise all those who mean nothing but say nothink.
