  1. 'unauthorised' itunes app purchases

    45 mins on the phone to Apple last night and a refund is apparently underway .
  2. 'unauthorised' itunes app purchases

    Update: seems trying the 'didn't mean to purchase this item' option for any subscription purchase means the request is automatically rejected. I've tried the 'issue note listed here' option together with a written request but don't expect have much hope .
  3. So I allowed my 11yo to add my debit card details to his iphone to buy the occasional song. Being a sensible, trustworthy kid I thought that would be fine. Unusually, I was checking a bank statement tonight and spotted a £15 transaction and realised this was linked to my son's itunes account. I then discovered the 'reportaproblem' website. Seems he has downloaded several apps that appear to be free but subsequently trigger a subscription (Wallpapers HD & Lockscreens, Tap by Wattpad, Tap Premium, Wallpapers 8 and Photable - Photo Editor & Collage Maker). I'm guessing the subscriptions a quite subtle as he's a clever lad and always ask permission for even a 79p download. I then discovered the 'subscriptions' options on the iphone and cancelled each of the above circa £60 down! Anyone have any experience of the reportaproblem website? Wondering if I should challenge the above via the 'didn't mean to purchase this item' option or is it a waste of time? PS. Suffice to say my card is no longer linked to his account!
  4. WiFi extension

    A big plus for powerline is reliability - it tends to just work even if it isn't the fastest. I use them for our Y-cams and haven't had any need to reset etc. as is often the case with wifi in months.
  5. It was the website reference I meant - had heard about it but thought it was a myth. Familiar with the original trade route reference.
  6. Didn't realise that Silk Road was actually a 'thing' prior to watching this. Great documentary and well worth a watch. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b092s5vv/storyville-silk-road-drugs-death-and-the-dark-web
  7. Festival Italia

    A few pics from today's event at Brands. The early 90's F1 cars sounded bonkers along the Brabham Straight - too fast for pics.
  8. Power Over Ethernet Qs

    All up and running now and we have an additional y-cam on the system (managed to cover with 1 rather than 2 new ones). Great pieces of kit these y-cams. Will hopefully help serve as a good deterrent in light of a spate of recent (daytime) burglaries in the area!
  9. Supercar megabuild - 100k heap of $hit

    Pretty sure my 5-series only has an electronic handbrake - presume that's considered mechanical if the above is true?
  10. Supercar megabuild - 100k heap of $hit

    For drifting init Go to 40:00 of the video for why it was fitted. The most pikey RR you will ever see.
  11. So it's a slow night on TV + been a long day and just want something easy to watch hence title thread. A google of Prindville leads to a look at their used car stock and this 'item'. I remember watching this episode a while back and thinking it was an 'interesting' take on a RR . . . but £100k . . plllllease. https://www.prindiville.co.uk/supercars-for-sale/custom-rolls-royce-silver-shadow-1979/
  12. Apple Airport Extreme

    Interested. Perhaps a silly question but do you think likely to improve wi-fi signal c/w a standard sky router?
  13. Power Over Ethernet Qs

    Cheers Mac. You've covered it all for me. The cameras draw 3.75w so that switch would be fine.
  14. I want to add a couple of Y-cams to our system using PoE. Current thinking is to use a Ethernet Over Power plug to feed signal to a PoE injector. This would ideally have 2 or more outputs to allow 2 cameras to be connected. Questions are: 1 - Single PoE injectors are circa £20. I've not had much luck finding a double one so do I need a switch thingy ? Sure there is a better name than that . These seem to jump up in price quite a bit. Happily consider a second hand jobby once I know what I need. 2 - Will a Ethernet over Power connection allow 2 x feeds to be provided? This may be the job of the switch thing. The unit i'm using are the older BT comtrend ones. Cheers 'smokers!
  15. Hmmmmm

    I'm no expert on used Porsche values but a quick look at Pistonheads would suggest this is priced way OTT. Nice condition and low mileage but 10 owners! This looks better value http://www.gmundcars.com/cars/4051/Porsche_924_S_Le_Mans
