So that is why........
So that is why my works phone keeps getting a flat battery.
I am less than happy about this and my employer even less so.
We upgrade our phones next year, I am recommending Samsung over Apple now.

As I live in the UK, (I have no debt), if I was wrongly fingered for someone elses debt via social media I would take legal action via my trade union.
What is legal in the US does not mean that it is legal elsewhere in the world so how are the bailiffs going to work out what country the contact lives in?
I took it off the works phone about two weeks ago due to it sounding alarms in the early hours of the morning.
Upon checking the screen it read that I had been in close contact with someone who had covid 19, upon logging in to the phone there was no such message there.
I have no faith in buggy software and even less in software that is now claiming to be "fixed".
Why have the NHS staff, Police, Fire Service and Ambulance staff been ordered to remove it from their phones if this is the bestest tracing app in the world according to our PM Worzel Gummidge?
My Wife used Microsoft Money (the version that came with DOS 6.2) in her business up until two years ago when her accountant told her that she had to use Sage.
She could get a turnover of £720,000 accounted for down to the last ten pence.
That Sage software is so inflexible that the accountant is happy if it is to within £100.
When it is not broken do not fix it.
Saw the government advice asking us all to download and use the new Covid 19 app.
My personal mobile phone is so old that the Google store refuses to allow me access so I am unable to install the software on it.
My work mobile is an Apple so I tried to access the Apple store for the first time and since I have no Apple ID it started asking questions of me......….
Email address, choose a password then on to first name, surname & date of birth (cheeky, did not give my real dob) then asking for my credit or debit card details !
I exited at that point.
Thank you UK government but my details are private and will remain so.
Thank God for that.
Up here in south east Northumberland DAB drops out when you are driving around in the car and if you go north of Morpeth it is non existent until you reach the outskirts of Edinburgh.
I have a really good system in my car but I have no use for DAB so can the manufacturers take note and leave the DAB system out so I can have my radio a bit cheaper please.
While on the subject all the new mobile phones are 5G ready but 5G is not going to arrive in Northumberland until 2024 so can I buy a cheaper non-5G enabled phone?
No, I thought not so the likelihood is that the phone will be binned before 5G arrives.
Well since it is Chinese and we all know where that virus came from I will not be buying one never mind any products Chinese in the future.
Our whole office is now committed to giving Chinese goods a miss for the foreseeable future.
Join in and source locally if possible, if not then learn to do without.
Thanks for the heads up but too late...……
I read about this a few weeks back and because of your article did not even consider Sonos when shopping for a speaker two weeks ago.
Came away with a great sounding Sony though.
I would never consider a Sonos product in future, they are blacklisted.
Feel sorry for those whose old Sonos products have been bricked by Sonos.
This is just what the quitters did not vote for but they were warned and ignored the sensible folk.
The government will set to on cutting business "red tape" soon and one of its primary targets is the European Working Time Directive and its laws pertaining to statutory holiday pay. Kiss paid holiday time goodbye and as a bonus all business's will save 9% plus on costs on the wage bill.
Suck it up quitters, you are not going to get what you voted for.
I can remember installing Windows 3.11 on many machines at work using six floppies and around half an hour of time.
Typing c:\win used to bring it all to life.
I can say that up until 2018 my wife used the DOS version of Microsoft Money running on Windows 95 in her business until the Accountant requested that she move to a Sage product.
From what I can remember it ran within an early text editing program going by the name of QBasic.
Why does HMRC do this to real businesses yet fail to apply this to the many football clubs in the UK that use tax owed to HMRC as their own to spend as they see fit.
Whenever a football club has gone titsup in the past they have all owed vast amounts of unpaid tax.
Come on HMRC, get your finger out and make them cough up.
They are only as smart as the people that use them, that is if you check them constantly to track down wastage such as a light left on in the house.
The power companies tell you that they are free but they actually add £11/year to your electricity bill or £5.50 to combined usage bills to pay for them over the next ten years.
Bear in mind that they are not installed by qualified electricians, the installers have undergone a one week training course on how to install them.
Your household insurance states that if you have any electrical work done by an unqualified electrician then any fire or electrical failure is not covered by your policy.
That includes smart meter installations. There is a lady in the south of the UK who owns a burnt out shell of a home caused by a fire that started in the smart meter and neither her or the power company's insurance company will pay out to rebuild the property. This has been going on for over two years now.
I am so pleased that I have read this today as I was going to buy some of these this week.
You have saved me some money and the planet a small amount of landfill.
I am going to buy the much cheaper generic ones as it seems that Apple does not mean quality and longevity with this product.
