Good fun that - without fear of, erm, contraception.

I have old, Gen 2 Dots and they're not great - I heard they got better?  What do you use?
On my Sonos Roam the voice recognition is amazing, even with it playing music quite loud it hears me fine.

RE: The Secret Genius of Modern Life

Really enjoying this, just watched the Voice Assistant (Alexa!) episode.
(really wish Amazon would sort out Alexa responding to her name being spoken on TV - she's supposed to be able to differentiate!).

RE: [VIDEO] Top Gear really is back!

Sunday's was so good, quite emotional too.
Paddy was so behind them all, almost like a proud dad.
So different to usual but so great.
Loved the idea, well played Top Gear. 👍

Zero chance of that, will be amazed if they get through the group.

"just heard on news, the armbands thing is kicking off!"
Big shame that but I think they were left with little choice if there's a chance that players end up being booked/sent off because of it.

The statement from the Football Supporters' Association didn't hold back (rightly!):
"Today we feel contempt for an organisation that has shown its true values by giving the yellow card to players and the red card to tolerance," it added in a statement.

"Never again should a World Cup be handed out solely on the basis of money and infrastructure.

"No country which falls short on LGBT+ rights, women's rights, workers' rights, or any other universal human right, should be given the honour of hosting a World Cup."

RE: Distressingly slow laptop. New RAM needed?

So were you running out of RAM?
It's not quite as straightforward going to a smaller HDD but simple enough though.

RE: Distressingly slow laptop. New RAM needed?

It says SSD for some reason but it isn't.
A 1TB SSD would have been a fortune if they even existed back then..
Was all of the memory being used?
At 8GB, I'd definitely have gone the SSD route first but 🤞

RE: Distressingly slow laptop. New RAM needed?

I'd ignore the fact it's 'cheap' RAM.
What makes you so definite there's only one slot?
I've seen a fair few laptops where one slot is on one side of the mob and another on the other side.
Having said that, 8GB is not 'that' low and should be fine.
For me I'd 100% stick an SSD in it, and not worry too much about the size.  Not sure why it says SSD above.

RE: [VIDEO] RIP Robbie Coltrane

Very sad about Robbie Coltrane. Sometimes you hear stories of how people were nasty or difficult to work with, but not a peep regarding Robbie. Scene from "The Supergrass" back in the 80's. No CGI. No stuntman. Even the rescue boat refused to go out. Incredible. 🎥 pic.twitter.com/fKWuMxX0GO  http://twitter.com/NWankshaft/status/1581424020225826816

That press conference was unbelievable.
She didn't actually answer any of the questions and left after 4 questions....  ...after having reverted back to Sunak's Corporation Tax budget - the removal of which was a key part of her leadership contest promise.

RE: Memory hog

Not sure about a quick way to select like that but you could select all (long press one and then Select All from 3 dots top right) and then de-select the recent ones (if that's what you're tying to achieve)?

RE: Memory hog

Looks like you're referring to the storage space on the phone as opposed to 'memory' - running slow etc.
I also use Podcast Addict and haven't had any issues with episodes not being deleted.  Is the option enabled to delete after listening?  I think you can also override the App settings per Podcast - make sure that's not the issue.
For Beeb stuff I can't get in Addict I use BBC Sounds.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal 22/23 Season

Offside is different and not a part of the same rules for VAR. It's a supposed black and white call for that and not clear and obvious error etc.

VAR isn't killing the game, it's the imbeciles running/misapplying it - and the refs bottling it and changing their minds.

RE: [VIDEO] NOPE

Enjoyed this.  The Daniel Kaluuya's performance did seem quite phoned in, surely a part of the character - and a huge contrast to his sister, who I thought was superb.
The barn scene was reeeeally creepy.  The cinematography and colours were all stunning.
Anyway, after I saw it I read the whole film is really an allegory for Hollywood SPOILER:
(you could see how Hollywood had really let down the family in this film etc.)
- but that certainly passed me by while watching it - unlike the recently brilliant Don't Look Up that I did spot the message it was (maybe too subtly) trying to tell/preach..
