Re: @Dave 126

Dave, Samsung USB chargers are actually very smart, they put out 9v to compatible phones, they charge very fast over the Belkin 5m USB cables I use. Check the power rating on the adapter to see what I mean.

Oh dear

And I had read that Foxconn had really made a decent iPhone this time too. Ah well. The Apple Reality Distortion Field will prevent this from becoming an issue.

My S8 is the same. I use it as a satnav for most of the day. The Google Maps icons and the black bar at the bottom are visible on Landscape mode. Thought the screen was damaged for ages before I realised what had happened.

Never had this on any phone before.

Re: never mind the content, brilliant headline!

My only concern is that it would flow better if it was 'the watchdogs' instead of just 'watchdogs'. I won't let this spoil my enjoyment of the aforementioned headline though.

Re: Groups and Rooms

Well I, for one, am now triggered.

Microsoft have killed off ('depricated') all the best bits aboit Windows Phone. Just bought a brand new Nokia Lumia 930, and while going through the obligitory hours of OS upgrades I noticed key features and apps were disappearing. Lumia Beamer - gone. YouTube app - gone.

It's almost as if Microsoft don't want your custom.

iPhones have always been a bit of a joke. People buy them because other people buy them. It's the same type of generic human that buy BMWs but can't tell you why.
