"simple Bluetooth speaker with half decent sound quality was probably the right decision in the long run"
probably the app you're using to drive the bluetooth speaker is leaking the same information though.

There were already much better interfaces on "PCs". Windows - and therefore the IBM flavour of PC - was "popularised" by outright market distortion that pervades to this day.
Frankly that's why pretty much everyone in the world sits down to work at a buggy slow POS that people perceive to be great purely because it's way better than it was. But apparently the Apple users are the sheep (no I'm not a fan of MacOS either).
"So if I really want to move it from 123 where is cheap and competent"
This is a tough one, because after much research on who to move to, I hadn't even finished a lengthy and painful migration from 123-reg to TSOhost, and they go and borg TSOhost too. Chances of that happening again are high.
Also 123-reg are competent (brilliant IMHO) at a tech support level, it's just their policies that suck arse.
Will not work, because the firms have figured that if you don't agree, you can do without the service. They're not interested in spending the time/effort to appease your issues, just sign it and get on, or go elsewhere.
What this needs is legislation, but I can't for the life of me work out quite what that would look like.
You forgot to bring up when they very quietly scrapped their no charge to transfer out promise. https://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/04/03/123reg_shrugs_at_complaints_over_sudden_domain_transfer_fees/ - pertinent I think.
I'll be testing getting them to comply with their original promise shortly!
My only arse with this is I've been slowly transferring my domains out to TSOhost, who were brilliant, but got borged by 123-reg's parent company Host Europe early last year :(
Not quite, Amiga were on their own, got into financial trouble, and only got a deal with Atari to stay afloat long enough to keep developing the chipset into something workable.
The Atari deal of course was heavily wieghted in Atari's favour, and one of the Amiga team manged to find a way to wriggle out of it with the deal from Commodore.
On balance a pretty fair outcome given Atari's dodgy tactics.
Development was actually mostly funded by a bunch of dentists AFAIR!
"consistency checking it, reporting back to us whether the upgrade was 100 per cent clean and then rolling it back"
You need to be 100% sure it will be clean BEFORE testing it on my shit, Mr Apple. And if you were 100% you would have no need to test it on me would you?
This is NOT the Apple way.
As the saying goes: BT are utter shite but everyone else is even worse.
Don't believe for a sec any of these other wretched fuckers calling for the breakup of whatever's left of BT actually want to provide you with a better service! they just want to keep more of your £30 odd quid a month for their shareholders and directors.
It needs fixing but this is not the way.
