Samsung on fridge cert error: Someone tried to view 'unsavoury content' in middle of John Lewis


"The bigger question is why the feck would you want a screen on your fridge?"

it seems to me the obvious would be to follow a recipe video,

food + p0rn = Nigella with her Ohh's and generous helpings

Teardown nerds return to the Fold with word of warning: Samsung kit still 'alarmingly fragile'


Progress or a P1$$ing contest?

How i imagine this product came to life....

At CES two execs are sitting at the bar ,

Sam turns to Mac and asks, if his company has any crazy products in the pipeline?

Mac replies "not since that toaster in 2000, we just make small changes and up the price these days. What about you? "

Sam retorts " see that tablet you got there, well we have folded it in half, shoved in a sim card, and calling it the next big thing"

HMRC 'disciplined' almost 100 employees for computer misuse over 24 months


Re: What's the issue?

From my experience number of employees has no relevance,

walk into any reception/ office / high st store and if farcebook or other brain numbing so called social media isn't on their computer screen , its in their hand.

Elreg is ok as its educational and essential reading.

On a side note, i wonder how many dodgy emails HMRC get with regards to a tax rebate?

Ever own a Galaxy S4? Congrats, you're $10 richer as Samsung agrees payout over dodgy speed tests


Re: S4 still running fine here :)

I'm also still rocking the S4 , i think samsung should pay me more than $10, if nothing else but as compensation for removing all that crappy bloatware they ram down your throat.

Then i discovered Lineageos .... AAhhhhh what a breathe of fresh air

Crash, bang, wallop: What a power-down. But what hit the kill switch?


Re: Placement of kill switch and other quirks

similar thing happened here only with the fire alarm

as it was activated in the basement it triggered a shutdown and a full evacuation of two buildings as they share the same basement

Samsung Galaxy's flagship leaks ... don't matter much. Here's why


Re: No jack, Jack.

I have been pondering the same issue for over a year now, to upgrade my S4 or not.

Every time i think about getting a new phone i have to ask myself

will i use all the bells and whistles?

will i notice all the bells and whistles?

As i cannot honestly answer yes and my S4 has more features (headphone jack, ant+,& replaceable battery) than newer phones i will continue to buy a new battery every 18 months or so and hope LineageOS keeps updating it. At least a not so well supported LineageOS is more support than Samsung currently gives
