    How Was Your Day?

    Just got an email to confirm the headset I ordered off Game's website has shipped. Normally it wouldn't be all that exciting news but there's a bit of backstory here: I was going through various sites comparing the available low-end sets (I was thinking a budget of at most £30, didn't want to break the bank over it) but for some reason even though I'd sorted the listings in ascending price order there was a name-brand set priced at £89.99 sitting near the top of Game's first page of headsets. So I clicked on it thinking there must be some error and, sure enough, Game were only selling it for the price mentioned but there in the list of associated vendors is a set being offered for an absurdly low £11.83. Now this was obviously a decimal error - some of the other 3rd party vendors were offering them for over £100 so I figured it was supposed to say £118.30 or something but I placed a cheeky order anyway expecting to get an email saying something like "sorry there's been a mistake and we can't sell you this product". Nope. It's been shipped. Then again I've had another look at the listing today expecting to see the price shifted upwards and that company aren't even offering the headset anymore so maybe it was their last in stock and they were just trying to flog it quick or something, who knows? Now I just have to hope when it shows up it's not a completely defective set...

    Interesting piece on shady tech biz antics and the right to repair.

    President Trump & the USA

    Utterly devastating to think he could at any moment snap his fingers and receive a detailed breakdown of the data from the world's top scientists but he still chooses to ignore the problem in favour of pursuing economic supremacy and making groundless remarks about it not necessarily being permanent.

    What on the roads has annoyed you today?

    I visited French service stations in the 90s, I'll be fine.

    Have to admit I wasn't all that interested in watching it but I can't pass up a nude scene

    Mobile Phone Thread

    Did a quick shop around and bought a galaxy j7 core after taking my previous cheap Chinese one for a swim in the sea. Seems decent for the price (~£105), any known issues I ought to be on the lookout for?

    What on the roads has annoyed you today?

    Reminds me of a bit of dashcam footage that was doing the rounds a few years back where this young lad races past the cam car on a country lane then loses control around a corner. When we catch up to him he's upside down in the ditch on the other side of the road and our driver (who turns out to be a mum & her kid) comes to a stop to check if he's ok (he's taken a knock to his pride and his vehicle but nothing else) then starts effing and jeffing at him. I tried to find the vid in question but I'm not having any luck.

    Questions Thread

    Just googled it, turns out you don't need one if you're under 15 or held a passport since childhood.

    I don't recall ever being interviewed for my passport... This a relatively recent development?
