Treaty of Roam: No-deal Brexit mobile bill shock


Re: So predictable !

Yeah. It's all the EU playing hard ball over the border that's the blame.

Have you any of these surverys to hand? Doesn't sound right to me. It may be an inconvenience and sticking point in the Brexit process but that is not a fault of the EU or the republic of Ireland.

The open border was part of the Good Friday Agreement which is seems ROI and the EU put more value on than Boris and Jacob.

Plug in your iPhone, iPad, iPod, fire up the App Store: You have new Apple patches to install


Re: Must be a popular one...

I believe for the .10 and .01 minor updates doing it OTA is quicker and it installs what is needed rather than the whole operating system.

Apple's launch confirms one thing: It's determined to kill off the laptop for iPads


Treat yourself to ios12 and a new battery for £25.

No, seriously, why are you holding your phone like that?


The 6S is awful for hearing what the other person is saying. Have to use headphones to make a call.

I just assumed apple had forget to make sure the phone was fit for purpose as an actual phone.

Apple WWDC: There's no way iOS and macOS will fully merge as one


Re: Nature "documentary"

It was indeed. I noticed his pronunciation of 'garage' was odd!

Virtue singing – Spotify to pull hateful songs and artists


You can...

Audiophiles have really taken to the warm digital tone of streaming music


Re: Streaming? Nah!

I assume you have a data plan and wifi at home? It doesn't have to be one or the other. You can have both. Your vinyl for listening at home and streaming for out and about. Plus you have the ability to download x amount of tracks for offline listening for when you are on an airplane or the tube.

Having used Spotify for nearly 10 years losing it would be a real shock to the system. I used to spend far more than £120 a year on purchasing CDs and now I buy I only buy when one of my favourite artists releases one.

Try one of the free trials and if you don't like it, fair play. Everyone's listening experience is different.

NHS given a lashing for lack of action plan one year since WannaCry


Re: Valuable comments

Problem being is that everyone feels 'entitled' to free care. "I've paid my taxes" etc etc so there's no incentive to take any action till its too late.

If people had to pay towards for preventable illness. Alcohol/smoking/obesity related diseases would the NHS be so stretched?

Should private health insurance be tax deductible rather than a taxable benefit if work provides it or you pay for it yourself.

So called health tourists could be clamped down on. I wouldn't dream going to America without insurance but no EU visitors can happily come here for all sorts.

iOS 11.3 update throws Jamf-managed iStuffs into a loop.. into a loop.. into a loop... into a...


Re: Stuttering Music

and I thought it was just me! Another issue I find it that occasionally it'll play the first second of a track after a track finishes and before the next one starts.

Lets see what ios 12 brings.

Sonos will deny updates to those who snub rewritten privacy terms


Not sure what I'm missing. From reading the blog post sounds like they want to use the data to improve the product as much as possible. With information such as error logs, and if you are using Trueplay or not.

The updated privacy terms explains what happens with voice data etc.

I don't own a Sonos but if I did I'd be happy for them to use this information to make the product better.

Apple blames air for iPhone 6S's narcolepsy


The battery shut down has happened to me 3/4 times over the last year before the 10.1 release.

Put it down to a software glitch and didn't inconvenience me too much. But the last time it happened was middle of November (phone on at least 40%) when I was using googlemaps on the phone so had to rely on common sense to get back to the car.

Got my battery replaced at the weekend and there was a steady stream of 6s owners queuing to either collect their phones or drop them in.

No problems so far but it's only been a couple of days.
