  1. Mercedes 190E 2.3 16

    Fantastic news, fingers crossed it all goes through and by the sounds of it to a good home.
  2. WiFi extension

    The speed will settle down, I use my Virgin Hub in a Bridge mode so its only used as a model and have an ASUS that does the wifi. As for wifi speed, then yeah a mesh solution to extend the signal to the furthest parts of the house can certainly help with the speed especially if you are a long way away from the router. Oh and as for TSN speed, its had a kick the other day and is running its hamster feet a little bit faster.
  3. WiFi extension

    Virgin have been faultless for me, sent from my 200Mbit connection.
  4. F1 2018 Drivers list

    Attraction to the team would surely be Robert Kubica as a come back. I doubt he will every get back to show the potential he was starting to show before the accident, but I'd be more than happy to be proven wrong on that.
  5. Monarch (financial trouble bewing?)

    Monarch like any airline it depends on the plane, last time we flew with them one of the planes was great and very new the other not so great, both better than this years Thomson. A guy at work has been affected with one of his flights. Its been cheaper for him to go 2 days earlier and get extra accommodation for a few nights than trying to fly on the same day in Oct with another airline as prices roughly doubled to Alicante apparently from what he found.

    Shame they haven't been able to turn it around used them many times and they have been faultless and very competitive. Something isn't right in the model, and they aren't going to be around for the new aircraft they order to arrive by the looks of it.
  7. F1 2018 Drivers list

    Not really, I guess when I talk about him as a person I'm also commenting on how he drives although thats not how it reads, but I've made that point already. No spark on or off the track, solid maybe but exciting to watch or showing much potential, no. More than happy to be proven wrong.
  8. M2 or Macan

    I've said different elsewhere, but I think I'd probably choose the Macan over the M2. Very rare I would get the chance to enjoy an M2 and if you already still enjoy the Macan then keep that and enjoy your other BMW.

    Just can't warm to him at all unfortunately, he isn't a character. There are a good few people offering other angles in F1 these days which is good he just comes across as dull and too corporate.

    I know Palmer has been unlucky but I just don't see the spark with him.
  11. Excellent, you on live once you might as well enjoy it.
  12. The £1k mobile phone

    Yep as above, you would need get phone out of pocket, double tap the screen to make it an apple pay payment, whilst looking at the screen, place phone against the terminal. Not much different to paying by finger print, easiest way is with a watch for ease. Thats just a double tap of the side button and place watch against reader.
  13. The £1k mobile phone

    That would certainly make things better. I'm moving from an iPhone 6 so it will be a mega leap either way, I can jump again in 12 months if I want, I've gone for another SIMO deal which was cheaper than getting the full 2 year Voda contract even with a 15% discount, so got the phone outright.
  14. The £1k mobile phone

    You need to be careful they aren't the same phone and the US models won't support all UK networks. I've ordered an 8 Plus. Not sold on Face ID for many reasons and I don't feel its obsolete at all. Its like saying that you wouldn't buy an older model car to drive when many do. So does that mean if you don't drive the very latest Merc or BMW then its obsolete and you are an idot for driving it, really don't get that. Face ID from what I've seen isn't as slick as I'd like and its only for once person to one phone. I regularly share my phone with my wife and the kids sometimes use it, I would end up putting the code in all the time in that case. Plus its understood they wanted to have a touch ID as an under-display option but time and manufacturing issues stopped it and they went with Face ID only; I think they would like to have gone with both for a reason.
  15. The £1k mobile phone

    The videos I've seen so far of the Face ID don't look that great, to me. I can certainly see the benefit and the power of any the new phones is incredible. I need a new phone and I'm undecided what to do, get an 8, 8plus or wait for the X... MMMmm I suspect I won't wait for the new phone and will get an iPhone 8+ on a contract as we get 15-30% off if we get a bundled deal and calculations in the past had that as the cheapest option.
