  1. Platty gone! Noooo

  2. Happy Birthday Franky boy! I too turned the ripe old age of 30 last week - 03 October. Took myself and the missus away for the week to a 5 star hotel in Fueterventura. Was pure bliss. She got me a flying lesson for my birthday. AMAZING
  3. It does my nut in a bit but I get it. Christmas is a lovely exciting and wonderful time for most people and you just want it to happen and people get carried away with the planning and presents and what have you. Personally I don't get into the spirit until the calender turns over to December. October is my birthday month and then November there are lots of other peoples birthdays and things to do. To think about Christmas in September seems crazy? Was at Bluewater today (big shopping centre for those who don't know it) and John Lewis already had some xmas decorations out. I kid you not. >_<
  4. The Android Thread

    Sorry should have made that clearer. I have a HTC One X. It's not broken as such just things have been going wrong and just had enough. I was tempted to upgrade to the HTC One but my experience of using the One X has turned me right off HTC. - Battery has seriously degraded over the past 18 months and it was depressing not being able to use the phone for fear of running out of juice at lunch time and not being able to text the missus. - Giro sensors kept packing up so auto rotate, gps etc wouldn't work. Therefore apps and games that relied on a giro sensors wouldn't work and this also made the camera go all screwy. I worked out a temp fix but every time I need to reboot the phone they would pack up again. Annoying. - Wifi was screwed for a bit - well known problem on the 1st gen HTC one X where the antenna would squash/bend down and it wouldn't make a good connection if any connection. Instead of sending off I fixed it myself with some tin foil.... yeah that's right I opened up the phone and fixed the wifi issue with tin foil. - As it was HTC and on O2 I would wait FOREVER for updates. It is still sitting on 4.1.1. I wanted pure Android and quicker updates which I now have. Love the Nexus 4. Only worry I have with it is only 16gb. My one X was 32gb but I will just have to stop being lazy with not deleting stuff off the phone!!
  5. The Android Thread

    It's a bit fatter than my HTC one but the pure androidness is lovely. Good bye HTC Sense!! I now have a Nexus 4 and a Nexus 10. May as well get the 7 and complete the family! Slowly turning into Mr Google :P

    I caved and got a Nexus 4 16Gb. Yup.
  7. Trip down memory lane

    I used to post some utter shit back then. Good times

    Bristol appears to be stuck in the 80's.
  9. I live in London. I'm screwed on all fronts. I have some savings but to get a mortgage it will wipe me out and I would be in a crappy studio flat or something tiny that costs 200k. Me and the missus can rent bigger quite comfortable at the moment and spend our moneys doing fun things like Holidays. Would like to own of course but just not doable for us down here unless you want to live in a stabby area. We could live slightly out of London which is fine but both work in London and the train costs are ridiculous. Would rather spend that money living closer in and cutting down commute time. Some of the house prices you guys get 'up north are ridiculously cheap though. *packs bags*

    What's the battery life like? My current HTC one X is DIRE.
  11. Advice - Bullying in the workplace

    Sounds like you defo need to get out of there and find a new place. She sounds awful. Alternatively if you do want to stick it and make it at this place then surely you could get head office involved. They would want the best staff working for their company and the best managers running the office. If you put in a complaint about her with the proof you clearly have and this other girl can also back you up as she is leaving cos of the office manager then surely head office will listen and would want to step in and sort it out and more than likely get rid of her rather than losing good hard working staff?
  12. The Android Thread

    So tempted to buy the 16GB at that price right now. Contract up in October so was going to get a new phone then anyway and prob move over to giff gaff or something. Thought about waiting for Nexus 5. But what if it's expensive or I don't like it and then the Nexus 4 is all out of stock.... I will cry a bit. WHAT TO DO?!?! >_<
  13. The Android Thread

    So Motorola or LG for Nexus 5. Both have strong rumours circling around them now with the latest about LG getting the nod and basing it on their latest G2 with slight modifications to keep the low price structure. Interesting.
  14. Football Season 2013/2014

    Enjoyed that. Better than your average friendly. Got me even more excited for the start of the premier league at the weekend too. Good to see Welbz getting a goal and 90 minutes. Needs to start delivering the goals this year. Happy for Lambert. What a moment for him!
