Topics I've Started

Brexit / The Future of the EU Megathread

12 June 2016 - 05:12 PM

Surprised there isn't a topic on this already, but having missed the opportunity to post about the U.S. elections I shan't risk being lazy and beaten to the punch again. So if you don't know - the UK is voting on whether or not it should leave the European Union on the 23rd of June. Does anyone have a view one way or the other?

Android Marshmallow OS is useless.... (Samsung S6)

05 May 2016 - 04:20 PM

Ever since my phone forced this update down my throat; Google Play Store has stopped downloading apps, the default Internet browser doesn't download pictures (have to use Chrome), Facebook claims I don't have a connection meaning I'm forced to restart it every time I want to use it, and the battery is being drained faster than on Lollipop. I tried resetting the settings this morning and it did restore Lollipop and I was able to install some stuff, but Marshmallow somehow reinstalled itself over the WiFi without saying anything... I gave the reboot another shot but Marshmallow wasn't even touched...

What can I do to sort out all of this crap? I saw a guide on how to downgrade to Lollipop - but it was really complicated and involved using a lot of programs on a connected computer. I'm pretty sure being out of mobile data for this month has exactly nothing to do with anything, too. And I've already tried all the stuff relating to force-stopping PS, clearing its cache, and etc.

Please help.

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens

Surprised no-one else seems to have made a topic about this already, so here goes. If you've seen the film - what are your thoughts?

Pokemon GO

21 September 2015 - 04:39 PM

I know there's the existing catch-all Pokemon thread, but this seemed worth of its own topic (for the time being at least) given the supposed scale.


I thought someone would've brought this up already. I help out at the local Computing Museum/Centre and a couple of visitors and other volunteers were really hyped...! Do you guys think it'll catch on and be the next big thing? Truth be told I cynically imagine all kinds of problems emerging like (stupid) people blowing all of their money on trips abroad to capture certain Pokemon, kids getting lost/worse hunting around locally, microtransactions eventually ruining everything for everyone, and so on (forgot the other thoughts that were running through my head when I was watching the trailer for the first time lol). I wouldn't be at all surprised if GO ends up being completely underwhelming. That's just me though!
