Ohm my God: If you let anyone other than Apple replace your recent iPhone's battery, expect to be nagged by iOS

“However, imagine if you needed to replace the battery in your car, but you could only buy the battery from the dealership, and only they could install it, even if you could easily replace it yourself. That sounds ridiculous!” -

This is exactly what is happening, cars particularly with stop start need the battery coded to the car, and the alerts regarding not having stop/start enabled removed. Unfortunately, your cheap and cheerful code reader isn’t going to cut it, so the only answer is to take it to a repair centre that has the right diagnostics to do this. Yes, VW, I’m talking about you!!!!

National infrastructure projects

Why are so many national infrastructure projects being farmed out to foreign countries?

National Infrastructure where possible should use UK labour and companies, that way there are more people in work, and more tax coming in to cover the additional costs.

Instead, we farm them out to the lowest bidder, then have to pay to have the designs checked to make sure they are not designing in flaws/backdoors, and having to shut down steel mills in the UK, as we are buying steel from China for projects such as this and HS2.
