It's a Doddle: Amazon inks train station parcel deal with Network Rail


Re: Which stations are actually run by network rail?

Well I popped your question into the google and found they only run 19 stations, with 11 being in London.

Thankfully every train I've got out of Waterloo at rush hour has had plenty of room for extra luggage. Mines the coat on a seat with all my Christmas shopping under it.

Internet of Things fridges? Pfft. So how does my milk carton know when it's empty?


Re: The internet of fridges

"when the said item has in fact been depleted, do we require now that the consumer replace the empty packaging back in the fridge"

That's what everyone in my house does, maybe smart fridges should start on tackling these bigger issues

Re: Buying from the label?

(Sorry) actually it was (Dr) Alex Paterson and Jimmy Cauty who started The Orb. Weston came along a little later (after Little Fluffy Clouds).

Ambulance satnav not to blame for asthma attack boy's death


Re: It's very sad...

I think it was very reasonable to have some big what if questions after something so tragic, I'm not sure the mother was necessarily looking for someone to blame (I know a lot of people do and media angles tend to lean this way too) but who wouldn't ask these sorts of questions?

Glad to see a solid judgement from the coroner and seemingly fairly quickly too (although no dates on either article) so at least the family can get on and grieve without waiting for months/years for answers.

Boy died after satnav fault delays ambulance


Re: The Knowledge

Well, a fair few cabs I been in (especially ones in the early hours) had used Sat Nav, and that's in a black cab from Brixton to Kilburn.

I wouldn't expect ambulance drivers to know every area, even if they'd been doing the job for years. I guess merging hospitals to cover ever increasing areas doesn't help either, West Midlands Ambulance Service is the second largest service which, the NHS site says, serves a population of about 5.4 million who live in Shropshire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Coventry, Warwickshire, Staffordshire and the Birmingham and Black Country conurbation.

TicketWeb coughs to email database hack


A, Well it showed up as Adobe Acrobat Reader in my email and only could see the proper details - From: Adobe Acrobat Reader (MAILINGS@TICKETWEB.CO.UK) - when opened.

B, Always surprises me what people will tell you if you just ask. "what's the password for that?" "oh just use my personal one, it's.."

Although both ended up in my junk mail anyway so didn't open either.

Alcohol DOUBLES LIFESPAN, helps resist stress



Depends on what you're drinking, been having a few American pale ales lately and they tend to be fairly strong (6-7%) as well as being a pleasant surprise to people who think American beers are all Bud or, horror of horrors, Bud Light.

Same goes for our beers, with bitters traditionally being a low 3.5% to porters at a nice winter warming 6-7%
