Maybe this is the answer instead of USB C? Backwards compatible so you can charge all your existing devices as it's just standard Micro USB but no messing around with the ends? Plus supports quick charge.

They used to have one at the James Went building at DeMontfort University in Leicester. Built in the sixties. Now knocked down due to asbestos.

Think they still have one at the university of Leicester in one of the buildings they have there?

Was always a great way to skip floors...

Just wondering whether you can get a Samsung Galaxy S5 style back (dimpled and less prone to slipping out of your hand) to fit the S4?

EBay doesn't seem to have any but then a search on there seems to bring thousands of back cases!

Thanks

Not aware of any such covers currently in the market, but I'd expect to see some appear over the next few months.

So, it's time for the 2014 season of Formula One and as has been the case in the past couple of years it's split over BBC and Sky Sports F1 for how I watch online. It appears that Navi-X which is usually my choice for streami...

It's new phone time and I'm confused over what I should get!

I'm upgrading from a Samsung Galaxy S4 and use it mainly for internet, camera, GPS, WhatsApp etc and general tinkering with Android - never really play games as I'm not a huge games person.

For the camera... I really want the G4 as it appears from Steve's reviews this just knocks the spots off everyone else. The size puts me off a little though I think I'd be able to live with it, I thought the S4 was massive when I moved up from the S2.

But then there is the new Sony Z5 compact... great camera as well and pocketable. But only 2GB RAM and will I find it too small going from the S4? I always find my other half's Moto G (1st gen) small when using it. Or even the Z3 compact, still a good phone and bargain prices of sub 20GBP on contract!

And then... there is the Nexus 5X... all reviews say it sucks but... it's NEXUS with a better camera!

Argh. Any ideas?

I'm loving mine. I bought the G4 on impulse, expecting to sell it on before too long, but I think it may be a keeper. For under £300 it's unbeatable value. There are a couple of irritating things, and no finger print scanner is a draw back, but not showstoppers.

Not noticed anyone sharing this before but for someone looking at getting a cheap Windows backup phone surely this is a bit of a bargain?

Sad, sad news. Adrian and Pandora were the two characters who guided me through high school!

All this talk of the Psion on here and PSC has got me thinking... Has there ever been a keyboard that surpassed the quality and brilliance of the 5 since?

A better question might be has anything even come close?

Never had a psion but for my money nothing beats the keyboard of the trio 650/680 and later blackberries.

Two for one on all main meals. Great kids menu and kids always seem welcome whatever the time. Service can be slow but it's not the worst. Food is very nice, good quantity of it and price is good. Easily get meals for two adults and one five year old plus drinks for all for under £20. £25 if like me you go for the surf and turf!

Amazing value for money, quite easy to have two mains, two drinks and a garlic bread for £16! Service is very quick, always playing sports and the booths even have their own mini TV. Food is very nice, especially burgers! Cheesy garlic bread is amazing!
