I'd believe all these Paypal phishing emails more if they didn't start "Dear Costumer"...

It's also supoosedly to weed out people smart enough not to fall for the scam, the theory goes the scammers don't want to waste time on people who might initially believe the first email but realise the scam as it progresses, so they put in deliberate typos to weed those people out up front.

OK lazy plus. My S5 is nearly dead. It's had a cracked screen for about a year, but not so cracked it's that annoying. Now the camera cover glass is also cracked. Still takes OK photos except in extreme light, but it's certainly not going to last much longer.

My contract is up in July, but there is a certainly little someone that will probably command lots of pictures taken of them arriving in May, so I'm looking around for off-contract options.

I want a decent phone, not fussed about extended storage provided I can get one with built in storage (the distinction between built in and SD storage is a massive pain on the S5 - I'd rather do without), but I do want a decent camera and battery life. That's about it really tho'.

So far I'm liking the +OnePlus 2 but not really shopped around much. Any suggestions/opinions? If something new is coming out in the next couple months that would definitely be worth considering too!

+Colin Guthrie  You might want to reconsider having an Android after reading this [¹] since Android is the platform to target due to non existing or poor update policy from manufactures. At least get yourself a phone where Android is updated as Google releases them if you are going to stick with it. ( I'm personally waiting to see what the next nexus line will look like and if I dont like it try Iphone )

Got the One Plus 3 but think it might have to go back. It's just too big for me. The current trend on large form factors does not agree with me. I thing my current S5 5" screen is just a bit too big for me (it wouldn't be so bad if the casing was a bit neater) so my gamble that going bigger might feel different enough to work better doesn't seem to be paying off. I guess I'll just stick with what I have and plod on until the next nexus is out...

On the plus side, it's gone up in price by £20 so maybe someone will buy it from me and I can make some profit :D
It's about time.

So does this mean the #brexit negotiations will be given to G4S? They seem to specialise in escapes from institutions after all...

What a terrible design! The problem is not secure software or hardware, it's secure design. This is just bad from a design perspective and it's kinda shocking how poorly thought out architectures can lead to this kind of thing. It's similar the URL shortening vuln where it's too easy to brute force (guess) the short URLs (and often this points to private data authenticated by a key in the (long) URL). Just bad design.

Having car just blink the lights and make a blip blip noise when people unlock the car ( like most of them do ) covers the parking lot use case quite well as well as do remote car starters which require individual to be in certain range of the vehicle as well. No need for a mobile app for that and being able to fiddle with the engine via mobile app is just insane let alone move it around.  ( if a pet or a child is in front of the car when it's summoned wtf ). Bottom line network connecting and control your vehicle in any shape or form is a bad idea even if it's just "manufacturer/service" access ( because if they can track and access the vehicle anyone else can too )

It's a very sad day today. We lost a very nice friend yesterday, a former colleague, an amazing contributor and an ardent advocate of free s

Great venue for a restaurant and the food is what you expect. Pity they don't use the upper level for anything.

Great place with friendly staff who really look after their patients. Our dog Luna has been going here since she was a pup and recently we received exemplary after care when she developed a slight infection after being spayed. Lots of scans and checks all at no extra charge. Would recommend to everyone.

This is a nice place if you want the diner experience. It seems to fit half-way between a gourmet burger restaurant and a fast food outlet. The service and portions are very much inline with a fast food place, but the actual quality and variety of the options far surpass it. As a veggie, I rarely have the inclination to go to other burger places which shall remain McNameless, but in this place practically all the menu options have a vegetarian equivalent which is really great to see. The "Jamaican Me Crazy" shake is a good shout!

I was fortunate enough to be invited to an "Evening of Wonder" at Camera Obscura and had an amazing time. The venue has been on my "to visit" list for some time after hearing great things about it from my niece (who insisted on going twice in one day on her last visit!), and I'm happy to say it didn't disappoint. Set on five floors, each has it's own unique feel. From holograms that react to the direction you view them (remember the rulers you used to have in school which worked the same way!) to interactive games you play with a friend, each exhibit will instill some sense of wonder! A great day out for all the family.

Fantastic selection of cask and keg beverages which rotate often enough that you could never get bored! The seating is somewhat limited but the split mezzanine makes the best possible use of the space! Only thing that prevents me from giving it a full 5 stars is the lack of a "pint" option (drinks are served as schooner - ~2/3 pint) and the fact that some of the bar tables are too high for the bar stools (although they do work well for stand so swings and roundabouts) On the plus side, they have hooks everywhere for hanging jackets the lack of which in pubs is a pet peeve of mine, so kudos on that one :)

This venue has seen a number of different faces over the years, but I think it's current incarnation is my favourite. It has a very rustic feel, and while the theme of the place might be a little overbearing at times, it's actually been very well decorated and there are many little details that are fun to spot. The food was very good and with well presented kebabs delivered on hanging skewers. The menu has a lot of choice with great fish options and plenty to keep the veggies like myself happy too! The selection of beers was impressive and our party seemed to try a good number of them over the course of the night! Will definitely go back!

This is a nice bar but I can't help but feel a round here is more expensive than other bars in the area. They somewhat make up for that by sometimes offering free snacks (at least on a Friday for the post-work, end-of-week crowd) although I'm not 100% sure if they still do this as I didn't spot it when I was last in a week or so back. It's recently had a bit of a refit although not all that much has changed if I'm honest. And despite it's name, this is the least convincingly French themed pub I've ever been in! - essentially a few posters and that's about it!!
