No Google, no banking apps? TBH they're the most useful things on my Note and I would miss them too much to abandon the "horrors" of the Chocolate Factory. Apple is anathema.

Where I work we're being encouraged to "embrace the modern office" which includes Teams. I fucking loathe it. We've managed without it for years. I hope it stays borked or can be further borked by some little dweeb out there. I don't even want to think about privacy when it comes to all the data Redmond can slurp.
Why do we need even more nanny state from those pricks in Brussels? Can't they spend some of the obscene amounts of money they spunk on ridiculous projects like trying to curtail climate change on helping people in the 3rd world have fresh water and somewhere safe to take a shit?
I quite enjoy skipping between BT, EE & Plusnet for my broadband & taking advantage of whichever sweetener they're offering in the knowledge that my broadband will still be 80mbps down & 20mbps up & that my 4G will be available on Bodmin Moor in case I get bored of the scenery; which is unlikely. Living in the Republic of Kernow has its advantages, but it's full so don't even think about moving here any time soon.
The University of Exeter has a presence in Cornwall at Penryn where it shares a Campus with Falmouth University so I think that is what was meant. The University transports some of its staff around in large cars with UOE number plates; very nouveau riche. If you follow the link you included in your piece . . . .
My LG G4 is by far and away the best Smartphone I have ever had and I have owned Samsungs, a Motorola and two HTCs. The LG smartwatch I have is still working after over 2 years of daily use. Maybe you were unlucky. My Samsung S4's on/off switch failed after less than two years and the other one I owned suffered badly from dust ingress. I like to be able to stick a micro SDXC card in my 'phone and replace the battery if I want to. Have a lovely weekend.
Or we could just give the police the right to tell your selfish neighbour to shut the fuck up or go to jail - now. I dream of all the selfish cunts in this world suffering unimaginable pain in the next or even better instant retribution. Selfishness is one of the greatest malignancies blighting the 21st century and if there is a god then it's failing to wipe out the selfish. No wonder I'm an atheist.
The battery life has never been a constant worry on my G4 which I have had since last June, and the 'phone is running Marshmallow, having received an OTA update, on an EE 4g contract. The camera is the best I have ever had on a 'phone and I love the dng option. The screen is amazing, I can swap out the battery, I have a 64gb card in it. What's not to like? I won't buy another Samsung 'phone as the two I have had have been a disappointment. The Tocco - remember that? - suffered from chronic dust ingress and the S4's power switch failed after less than 2 years - POS - and the camera was shite. My G4 could be a keeper.
As PV or Solar Farms as the f**king tree huggers call them are spreading across Cornwall, I wonder how long it will be before someone hacks these for "fun". The sites look like concentration camps with their fences and CCTV. The only benefit is that they are wildlife havens although I expect they do manage to generate a couple of megawatts . . . which cannot be stored. Why not divert some of the millions wasted on AGW research towards energy storage. I will get my coat as it's still quite chilly here.
It's all hot air, and what a lovely mild winter we're having? I hope all those warmist freaks fall on their swords when the next ice age sets in. No they won't, because they are spineless liberal retards who probably eat too many vegetables and create more than their fair share of hahaha "greenhouse" gases via flatulence and whilst driving their fucking hybrid vehicles with their precious little retardlets strapped into the back smearing saliva over their fucking iPads. Yeah, coz it's their prerogative to breed isn't it? Unchecked population growth is the biggest "threat" facing planet earth. Even pseudo-intelligent people acknowledge that. look forward to reacquainting myself with a Lee Enfield 303.
Higher education seems to be employing the same business model as the BBC. It pays huge salaries to people with little or no commercial experience - they've probably not even worked in a shop - to wield an axe over employees who might have decided that to work in education was ethical, like working for charity. Unfortunately both sectors have been ruined by commercialisation. Oh to be self-employed.
Or you could avoid using any software at all and shoot film and print your images in a darkroom like everyone used to do only about 10 years ago . . . . Or maybe you prefer to work in a room with 18% grey walls and subdued lighting and hope that your printer can satisfy your needs. Oh BTW, yes, I have done this in colour and black and white and it's really not that hard and it involves standing up and not sitting down which is apparently very bad for homo sapiens. Is digital so appealing then, given the "costs"?
I won't need a coat as, at the moment, it's not raining in Cornwall.
"down to about 250-300 quid each . . . . "
That's quite a few books or nice little trips out to the park or the beach or the ghetto even. I hope nobody in teaching has the balls to turn around and say that education is underfunded in this god-forsaken cold grey country because they need . . . . it'll be censored or the thought police will smash down my front door if I type it. I will get my "outerwear".
Have owned two albeit, BL tinged, British cars, three French cars (but not Renault), and one Japanese car and have driven many of them around the clock. The French cars were agreeably reliable, the Japanese one almost faultless and the British cars . . . . ask Red Robbo as he should be very proud of what he did to the wonderful British car industry and can probably tell you why the cars made in his era were so wonderful too.
