Sometimes you wonder if Apple plan each iOS upgrade with the intention of causing peeps to leave in disappointment and frustration.

I am a voracious listener to audio books and with iOS 8.4 came these wtf! changes....

Audio books have now been relocated from the "music player" to "books."

Understandable you may say and I don't particularly disagree except that there are more nasties lurking under the surface.

Where audiobooks used to show as a single item they now show only in chapter form.

Where before I could interchange betwixt my iPhone or iPad and my Sonos system by finding the exact place I left off on either device now I need a degree in arithmetic to find 2 hours 13 minutes
(Example only) on Sonos and convert that to which chapter on my idevice. And of course vise versa.

In a chapter there is no rewind or forward except in 15 second increments and should you look at the book on your idevice to try to discover where exactly you are.... The book auto starts!

Frankly this is just fiddling for the sake of fiddling. And before music players ask what the issue is...... Some of the audio books I buy can be up to 60 hours long.

Even if you know what chapter you're in there is no accurate way to find your position within the chapter.

Put it back the way it was Apple!

So! "Septic Blotter" has finally left! Hopefully his next free junket will be courtesy of the law. Time to clear out this bunch of pigs at the swill bucket. The whole bunch of them are so "bent" they have to sleep on spiral staircases. Football is the worldwide game of the people. Time to give it back to the people!

Nice to see the spurts performed their duty as lambs to the slaughter.

Well done Chelsea

This "prawn" is supposed to be the Mayor of London and he has no idea about a major cup final in his city!!
The Mayor of London says that he doesn't have "the faintest idea" who is playing on Sunday's showdown between Chelsea and Tottenham

" ...We shall not flag nor fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France and on the seas and oceans; we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our island whatever the cost may be; we shall fight on beaches, landing grounds, in fields, in streets and on the hills. We shall never surrender and even if, which I do not for the moment believe, this island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, will carry on the struggle until in God's good time the New World with all its power and might, sets forth to the liberation and rescue of the Old."

Today is the 50th anniversary of the death of Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill.
Please give a thought to the freedom you are currently enjoying in reading this.
One man saw the danger and called a nation to arms to fight for that freedom. If there was truly a man who fitted the phase "cometh the hour, cometh the man" Sir Winston was it.
So please take a moment, because without him this world today could have been a much darker place.

Being played in my home tonight. Clearly not well when this was recorded Joe Cocker could always turn a cover version into his own.

Will be very sadly missed
