And plugged in, with the wiring sufficiently changed to send as many volts as possible to it?

My worst call ever from my hell desk days:
Hi IT? The vending machine is out of crisps.
Me: while I think that's a terrible problem why are you ringing IT?
User: Well it's electric isn't it?
To this day my ex colleagues and friends in IT have a running joke of "Hi, IT? Can you change the light bulb / refil the car with diesel / wipe my arse for me?"

Is dropping your phone common?
I've honestly never dropped mine in a way that cracks the screen. I use the case that came with my Mi 9 and it's nice but generally won't go out my way to get a case.
So is it common? I drink a ton and I have dropped phones but never ever outside and never in a way that has even produced a scratch.
Am I an alien, or is this feature here a genuine selling point?

Wireless charging is great, trust me.
I've had to get rid of too many phones because the charging port gets used so much. Doubly so if it lacks a proper headphone jack.
I echo your NFC comments, but wireless charging is great. I have a little wireless power brick with me, it's convenient and no need for cables.

Teams is terrible. I was hoping the work from home thing might lead to LESS disruptively common team meetings.
Instead it's just, I dunno, sort of a way for people to reach other team members, or for managers to "check" on us or whatever.

Re: Lobster Pot
OK settle down for a fairytale..
Was once an establishment where a patron could congregate with companions and other like minded imbibers of sweet, merciful booze
Then one day a terrible ogre with a face too small for his gargantuan head came down to the kingdom, and assaulted the very notion of hostelry with his "Wetherspoons" curse:
Brexit leaflets on the tables.
Negligent working practices.
Crap anti-atmosphere clearly designed to make you drink more to escape the banality.
Diluting the Holy recipe of Curry down to beneath the bottom of the barrel.
But plucky hostelries rose up against this monstrous ogre! And in the before-time, us merry rebels did occupy as many as these boozers as possible - to refuse the lure of the wicked ogre and its assailance on culture and taste!
There are whispers even now that the fine rebelling alehouses may yet survive the dark COVID plague..
Re: The Swan
Oh yeah the Bridewell was a place I visited before the lockdown! It's a canny boozer, the ex prison architecture is fascinating.
I'm going to have to do a tour when it's all safe.. Just hope my fav haunts have survived. I'll eagerly try to keep Liverpool pubs going with an influx of my own cash (in return for fine ales, tangy ciders and Wobbly Bobs!)
Fully agree with the recommendation.. Doubly so if it's after a decent session in the Ship n Mitre! (ahh, pubs, remember those?)
Or if you are sufficiently brave / foolish in the exercising of choices for whistle-wetting, a pint of Wobbly Bob in the Swan on Wood Street. Upside of drinking Wobbly Bob: you never remember the stupid crap you obviously did when on it!

Well, professionally I don't think they're on par, albeit not unheard of.
I am asking a lot of the average user but if I can't navigate a system with key combinations I'm not going to be as productive. That's faster than a mouse and faster than touch.
To me they're consumption devices. Nothing wrong with that.
But for production? Naah.

Re: The true cost of using these "free apps"
Don't take this the wrong way (which seems easily done) but you could fare to be a wee bit less combative!! Pre-emptive sorry for the selfie reply you're bound to give. Please & Thanks go a long way.
Though I'd also like an answer to the worst-case-scenario questions. I've bought Mary Jane over WhatsApp for years and I'm free.
And though you phrased it very spikily, you may have a smidgen of a point with the ol' "insulting every WhatsApp user' thing. I support a football team who use it. My MP uses it (I know, I know) and my Labour MP uses it..
So, reluctantly, I echo the request for why this makes you a bad / gullible person.
Though do stop being so arrogant... You catch bees with honey.
If it gets Revolution OS it'll have no slurp ware.
And tbh I think the slurping is overrated, you're not forced to use Xiaomi apps. Or at least I wasn't on my Mi 9 before rooting it.
XDA love Xiaomi phones, keep an eye on it, and it will be rootable and hence stop the slurp. Don't let it put you off.
