I'm trying to figure out how Twinings determined it was their tea bag.
There was a Twinings box behind the Elf in the original ad. An updated version removed the box.

About 20 years ago I noticed a user from a different part of the company booting up his PC in the morning - he had to enter the date and time in when prompted. When I asked why, he said he'd been doing that for over a year, because his PC always forgot the date and time when powered off and IT couldn't find the fault - so IT had added date/time prompts into autoexec.bat.
As someone who was never afraid to do IT's job for them, especially if it had the potential to demonstrate how totally useless they were, I opened the case of this PC thinking that maybe the battery needed replacing, looked inside for less than 10 seconds, then removed the CMOS reset jumper that was still fitted. Problem fixed.
The report makes it clear that the data used to rank countries is based on data from OpenSignal. Their data should be taken with a truckload of salt.
I've used OpenSignal's app on four phones and two networks and it just never uploads any test results; their data still shows no coverage near where I live on my network. I don't know how they can get away with publishing data collected from such an unreliable app.
My current electricity supplier don't bother to ever read my meter, so I have to do it for them. This is despite the meter being on the same external wall and 6 feet from the gas meter, which they do read.
And even then I do not want a smart meter, even if it did mean they can read the damn thing remotely.
This mission has been a great success and I've followed its progress for years. Lets hope we can have more discoveries like these.
Often forgotten is the fact that Rosetta wasn't originally going to visit 67P but comet 46P/Wirtanen instead. But after an Ariane 5 ECA self-destructed in December 2002, Rosetta's planned launch the following month was postponed and a new target had to be found; Rosetta launched over a year later than originally planned.
How about the users who know they don't know something and are prepared to ask... but they think they have a photographic memory so don't take notes, and end up asking the same question again a week or two later, and yet again another two weeks later. There's no point adding pages to the support FAQ list because these users always forget that exists! One user still didn't take the hint when I just kept forwarding an email to him containing all previous answers to his question.
If you're using the nightly builds, Cyanogenmod gets the updates very fast. My CM13 phone got the July updates within a day or two of Google releasing them; I'm expecting the August updates to be similar. I am using the nightly builds though - the last "stable" build for my phone is 9 months old.
I'll never buy a new phone that doesn't have Cyanogenmod builds available. I had enough of manufacturers refusing to release updates after less than a year. (Motorola, Samsung, Sony have all done this.)
I think I've had devices by Sony, Samsung, Motorola and Asus that all got one OTA update then became unsupported before the 1 year warranty even ran out. Two of them ended up running Cyanogenmod builds.
It seems to me that the manufacturers can't even be bothered to support their devices for 1 year.
