I always asked alexa to give pi to 10,000 decimal places when in John Lewis. Made sure volume set to 11 first and walked away.
They're locked down with awful demos now, so not so much fun.

You're lucky, I'm in Maidenhead and in my house, downstairs, I get zero DAB stations, upstairs, I get some occasionally with a lot of Dalek style break up of sound.
i just hate listening to those stations that are constantly advertising DAB saying how good it is. Utter Rubbish
I use FM and internet radio, they seem fine...DAB's for the dustbin.
I don't think flash has properly worked with FF for a couple of months now since FF 13 came out...on either of my pc's.
Keeps downloading new versions, but still borked and CPU tends to go through the roof and then crashes.
Forces me to revert to IE when I need those YouTube moment.
B****Y Mozilla / Adobe!!
A neighbour of mine witnessed a lightning stike to his home. Whole room lit up.
Caused 10's of thouisands of damage, surge came in and radiated out through all electrical wires. Including the aerial.
Goes to show that unplugging the the mains is not enough, you have to completely isolate your telly if you want it to survive lightning.
Oh, and those surge protectory, not a chance with that sort of power involved!
I've been playing with these LED's for a couple of years now.
the stated equivalent wattage is generally way off the mark. So I've got 8 lights in my kitchen, two sets of four. Four halogens and four LED's. The LED's are staggeringly dim compared to the 50w halogens and cost 10x as much.
I've tried various types, but the people selling them as I say, are exagerating their capabilities and shopuld be taken out and shot.
My employer (one of the world's largest companies), is hell bent on moving all skills to the lowest possible locations i.e. India and not China (because India's getting too expensive). They don't care about people, just numbers.
I know of one business manager who is an expert in this sort of offshoring. He would go to business managers and tell them he could reduce their costs to 25% of what they are now. When a manager turned around and said, no thank you, he would ask if they received a pay slip every month and which logo it had at the top.. They soon tumble.
There's a reson no ones going into the industr in the UK..... There's no jobs!
