Big Beardie's watching: Alan Sugar robots spy on Tesco petrol queue

Re: Clubcard

Actually the vouchers can be pretty silly and not used, but the points are always worthwhile, if there was something I wanted to get but not want Tesco to find out about, just don't use the card, or shop elsewhere.

Perhaps when they see the alcohol I buy they may think to keep it in stock, yes I do go to small producers (eg Westons) not mass produced syrup based rubbish (eg most big names) and I TRY to buy British.

When it is 5p off a litre I pass the vouchers off to collegues as I use LPG mainly.

But remember the shopper controls the club card data.

Typical Tescos

I actually avoided using Tescos for over a year a few years ago despite living near one. I refused to go in, and I let them know why.

They had stupid irritating TVs on all the aisles, staff hated them as well.

I think the slight drop in visitors helped rip them out.

Then their stupid trolleys with handles full of adverts. It is possible to snap them off!

Definately the best was to avoid the place.

Now to their petrol. Nasty stuff, my car runs like a pig on it, yet is fine on BP, Shell or Esso.

Re: Console for Convicts

Upscaling from 720 to 1080

Does it matter if the TV or the console does it?

It is still upscaling rather than native resolution.

Yes the XB1 is running at the same resolution as lots of current generation games.

Also 720 and 1080 are obviously different on my 46" TV

XB1 to me is not quite next generation, I am even wondering if it can beat this generation!

Re: BetaMax comparison hardly fair...

Apart from owning some 1980s VCRs of that format (still working) I have rarely tried to use any other sound track but that of the game itself.

With the quality and suitability of the supplied ones, it would be wrong to do it.

HOWEVER I did once try to use an external from game sound for multiplayer but it would not use it as I needed chat.

The music was the download of the games sound track.

Buying one for games

That is my main focus, my PS3 will not disappear if I stick a PS4 there, just as the PS2 still works, so why worry, DNLA will come along, I was surprised it was missing but no deal breaker.

So why am I buying one?

Well I like games from Naughty Dog and Guerilla

Re: I would be interested to see if their censorship guidelines can be found online

Thankyou for supporting our language.

I see plenty of really bad English and about half the time I cannot even understand it. So what chance do second language speakers have?

I get sub human grunts as emails for Ebay sales, sometimes I ingnore them, often I deliberately misread them until they get it into their tiny brains that they need to write in English and not the written form of grunting.

Re: Shame

Dump film music, keep games, take TV HiFi Camera ect up market again and drop the cheap crap.

I have a lot of decent Sony stuff, none of it was cheap.

One of the worst LCD TVs I have seen - cheap Sony, best, expensive Sony, you would not think they were same manufacturer.

My 1982 portable video recorder still works!

Yes I am old enough to remember they were premium and worth the premium, they still have the odd product like this, but they have to stop competing against the Koreans and start competing on quality rather than price again.

They need to remember why people bought Trinitron TVs, and it was NOT the price

I sort of wondered

People mention multiple universes, could dark matter be that?

My personal idea is that dark matter and dark energy are not actually there, but are the equivalents of an adjustment to make things fit. Basically that spacetime is not fully understood.

But like most people I am waiting for the scientists to letus know.

I am not a prude I think

But the idea of beheading videos on a social network is just sick, I would hate to even accidentally see one, I would have nightmares. And I like action films, I thought Bad Taste was hilarious, I play a lot of shooter games.

But a few breasts, I see them everyday, why would they offend me?

So to censor a natural part of half the population (as an example) but to allow seeing REAL people getting their heads cut off, why is it allowed?

Facebook are sick.

I would be happy for them to end up on the block list until they grow up.

Re: Who the hell cares?

The hair doesn't fall out over night - usually if you're going to go bald you normally have some sort of warning via family members losing theirs too, basically you come to terms with it way before it's gone.

My maternal grandfather had hair until he died in his 80s

As a lucky person of hair, I would rather be grey than dye it.

But if I went bald I do not know what I would do, but I would not bother having operations. Even though I am 75% grey..

Lexus is embarrasing, nothing wrong with Toyota GT86 or Toyota Supra. Same thing with Nissan and their silly poncy brand, it has nothing on the letters GT-R.

A lot of us are not TV centric, yes we watch TV, 1 to 2 hours a day, but they are also for watching films on, or for gaming on,
