Xiaomi Mi 9 owners furious after dodgy Vodafone software patch bricked their mobes


Presumably the Vodafone version is"special"?? My Mi9 - bought SIM-free - had this update some weeks ago with no problems.

Mandatory electronic prescriptions was the easy bit in NHS paperless plans


Works for me...

After a heart attack and triple bypass 23 years ago (IT is stressful!) if been on quite a lot of pills ever since.

For at least the last 10 years my practice has used pharmact2u. I never go to the surgery but when I need the repeat prescriptions I just go online, login and select from my 'list'. They arrive in the post 3 or 4 days later.

Truly paperless and they have never let me down. (Yet!!)

Vodafone's spending pays off - but EE hangs on to UK network crown


Location, Location, Location...

The trouble is that if you are not near a major town or city you often have no choice at all. At home - and I work from home - I can usually get 4G from O2 whereas none of the others even manage 3G!

I can see that if you are travelling a lot then EE might be the best overall but if you are usually only in one or two locations then it's going to be whatever works there.

As a 67 year old with a functioning brain, I'd just like to add that not ALL over-60 voted leave!
