Re: The positives
I think a lot of small businesses will just say stuff it and not bother.

Well this is horrid.
Getting used at work and I have found the following problems
1) Cannot use like a phone, ear keeps pressing things.
2) Answer button often tries to hide when you want to use it.
3) IP Phone and real phone still ring.
And very difficult to muliple use eg see text on PC and sound via phone.
i HATE it!
Got a mix at work of owners of gaming PCs Switches, PS4s, XBone.
Need to find a game we all have and can cross play.
Due to working on them all day, not a fan of PC gaming. Some people code all day game all night same machine. PS4 owners have different game likes, XBone player has to use other friends.
So a little stuffed here.
I have long been a fan of decent optics I rely on them all the time.
My current glasses are junk compared to my previous pair wth Nikon lenses - optically excellent.
The USP of cameras though now is the optics.
Phone cameras are generally not very good, totally lacking in flexibility compared to SLRs. Mind you an old Nokia was good as a point and shoot compared to any others I have had.
I just want a good quality DSLR where a 50mm lens is a 50mm normal use lens. Any 35mm user will know what I mean.
Surprising that JVC did not bother as they had a good video camera in the tube and seperates era I wanted one but could not afford one, I had a second hand Sony tube camera which was good but not as good as the JVC. But the Sony recorder was the best one on the market.
The late tube cameras were often pretty good.
But mix and match disappeared with the camcorder. Later the Video 8 backers took the market.
I ran my seperates until the camera tube failed then went to DV, later HDV.
I have managed to compare footage from early video kit and found the following.
Early 8mm footage can be soft. Some early cameras were junk, Sony tube cameras were low on features but good on picture quality. Until Hi8 the Sony portable VCR was still best.
And yes it was assembling footage from multiple sources into one video using a PC, then burning to DVD.
DV and HDV cameras often have a still frame option using memory cards, quality is interesting. Resolution is not that high (video pickup chip) but lens quality is really good.
Phones only got good when Nokia gave it a go.
Getting puzzled here.
GE that is a US company isn't it?
Alstom is a European company. This version created by merger of GEC (British company) and Alsthom (mainly French company). After GEC was killed by crap management.
So nearest thing to aviation with the European company would be BAe from EE (Lightning).
Can someone clear up link between GE and Alstom (not Alsthom or GEC Alsthom)
Not common for him but enough to mention.
Funny really but I have always seen them as childrens characters not effigees of people.
They look like strange dolls not like people. I don't get the likeness thing. They look like a strange idea from a weird person.
UK classism over racism.
Yep fully agree.
There are types of people I am wary of (eg drunk thugs) but nothing colour related.
Now to racism, I take the mickey out of a hat one member of staff wears to try to style his hair*, but not him.
Anyway he is of Indian sub continent ancestry born here, dad from the African explusion. Another collegue was on about "them lot" and "your lot" with regards to immigration. So a few of us stepped in to boths surprise.
Then I stated that I am not a racist but a twatist, be a twat and get treated like one.
Trying to explain that being born somewhere, speaking the main language as your first language, understanding the national ID, he was as British as anyone else. Also he was not a twat.
It really riled me as the picked on lad was early 20s and was sad to say used to such nonsense.
* Still not worked out why, not sure if trying to flatten or what.
so kitchen / dining room, fridge freezer is about 1m from where I am sitting working on a tower PC remote to office, between us a door way (door removed) and I can see the TV with some white haired man and a blonde woman chatting with other people remotely.
My wife is on a This Morning binge as she can't use the PC.
If my wife wants a recipe she uses THIS PC.
TV is pre smart and better for it. Fridge is better being a fridge.
