Lies, dam lies ...
Fastest growing, from an almost totally insignificant number to a marginally insignificant one - fastest growing in terms of total numbers, don't think so, percentagewise, obviously, and no doubt it will be next year too!
Re: 75 miles? hahahahahahahaha
Wake up - Tesla Model S will do exactly what you need, though now you'll tell me its too expensive I suppose, though you don't have to rent the battery so another thing you dn't need to worry about!
Ready to be flamed
But I don't really like normal tea - though do have Lady grey, Ceylon, Darjeeling, redbush and Lapsang (all Twinings of course!) on my desk ready for whatever I fancy. All brewed in a mug without the need for moo juice or sugar - simples!
So my 28" Widescreen CRT will have to wait a bit longer to be replaced by OLED, or 4K, not that I have even any 720p HD inputs let alone anything more modern!
Seriously it always seems waiting for the next big thing in TV at the moment, I'll keep hold of mine until it goes bang then gets whatever is latets and greatest at that point, though I assume I'll be watching the same old dross...
Is this like...
...doping then donating money to the anti-doping lab to make sure you know how it works?
Re: No shuffle?
I assume album shuffle means play an entire album, then play another one randomly chosen, rather than, play in order, get all your Wurzels albums at the end when the battery has died anyway or track shuffle, play any track whenever it fancies thereby eliminating the need for artists to even create albums.
As for the amount of data you can get on it, i have a 1GB Shuffle (2G?) and since the only way to charge it is through USB that's when i update the tracks, never get through them all before the battery needs charging anyway so no need for a bigger storage capacity without a better battery.
NB The battery is now old and the device has had a lot of abuse as it is used for gym, running (wet and dry) and basically for a device that can fail as I want a new one now anyway!
Far too obvious
Why do something cheap and easy when there is expensive and complex! Geothermal works well in the countries where there are already volcanoes and earthquakes, see Iceland for example, but they survive, not sure a bit of fracking will really cause any issue to the stable Great British Isles. Environmental lunacy!
Spent playing Lander on the A5000, as well as other games, I remember E-Type being compatible from the A3000 that the next door neighbours had but on the A5000 the average speed ofthe car would be about 300mph, faster processor seemed to result in a faster car! It was also my introduction to SimCity (many lost hours) and I suspect if I asked my parents would still have it in the loft somewhere and would no doubt still work.
Oh and !Draw was an awesome free package, my brother designed an extension for our house using it (never got built) and the kitchen for our new build house (which did get built), just so much easier to use than Visio and massively cheaper than any fancy CAD package.
And the boot up time of 2 seconds eclipses Widows 7 on a SSD no problem...
My old 28" CRT refuses to die though :o( Don't need the 55" but when i can get one around the 40" mark for about a grand I'm there. Yes wall mounting would be nice, but I already have upward compatible furniture for the day a flatscreen TV arrives.
TV tech amazes me, there didn't seem tobe much change between invention and the mid-1980s other than colour, since then we'vee had wide screen, digital, plasma, LCD, LED, OLED, internet connectivity, 3D and always at a price point that over time goes from stupid expensive, to expensive, to affordable to downright cheap, can get my TV from a charity shop for £25 and it cost £800 new!
