Nasty firmware update butchers Samsung smart TVs so bad, they have to be repaired


Sony tv updated

AS poster above recently updated my smart sony tv, all went well BUT I notice it now uses gracenote stuff in the TV guide and I am sure it is sending back all my viewing habits back to sony slurp central. What they will make of that data I have no idea. PLus obviously samsung do not expet anubody , lest of all Aunty gerty, to lug their tv to a samsung dealer .. it will be done by a sammy engineer at home, unless ppl are tech savvy enough to insert a usb stick and happy to invalidate their Gtee.

Adam Afriyie MP: Smart meters are NOT so smart


I foresee a future

Where maybe thre is only ONE energy supplier, so all the competition nonsense is stripped out. Its run for the benefit of consumers, so all the dividends are stripped out.
