UPDATE: OK package received.  Unusually a neighbor was in and accepted the delivery.  Sorry for accusing  HDNL this time. Does not really change my view of them but package received.

#hdnl  or as I prefer to call them 'Help Delivery Now Lost' have apparently successfully delivered a package that is about 3 foot long by 2 foot wide to my office at 19:28 this evening.

That is great.  But, what is particularly interesting is the office and every other on the business park is closed at that time.

So  unless Paul Daniels has taken to working for this company and has magically got the package though a locked, and alarmed front door followed by a 8 foot reinforced steel gate no package has been delivered.

I have the luxury or remote access to the CCTV and there is no package left outside either.

So #hdnl  would you care to explain or better still +Amazon.co.uk would you like to explain why you use a courier service that quite frankly are perhaps better at playing hide and seek with peoples packages than delivering them?!

And for those still reading, just for a giggle -  https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/www.hdnl.co.uk - 1.3 out of 10!

My #z3compact has virtually no memory left, that's with moving most of what I can to the memory card. 16GB internal is apparently no longer enough for me. I could remove some apps but I shouldn't have to. Looks like I am forced to change but I have no ideas what I will change to. Reluctant to go to a bigger phone but think I may have to as bigger phones tend to have bigger memory.

I do agree with you in that there should be ingenuity in design that isn't a burden size wise yet comfortable enough to be a single handed phone. I suppose I should look into the compact series. I am looking to upgrade in a while.

There may well be those that think #blackberry  have lost their way a little and are essentially dead.

There will be others that think they are still the best thing since sliced bread.

For me I would still not jump to the OS just yet, but from using the #blackberrypassport , #blackberryclassic  & #blackberryleap , it is fair to say that the OS is coming on leaps and bounds with some very powerful features.

What is also true is that the hardware is solid, well built and often weighty.  Whilst likely not right for some that heavier, sturdy build has a lot of benefits.

Rumours of Android on their next flagship I believe are just that.  It would seem strange to jump when so much time and effort has been spent in developing the OS.  If it were Android, would I jump?Considerably more likely.

Whilst the Venice on paper seems too big for me, that keyboard and design is extremely compelling.  For too long we have lacked keyboards.  Once prevalent, they are no longer. Yes, opinions and technology has changed, but I think there is space for a flagship with such.

The issue is whether the Venice arrives as the pictures and specs suggest. Whether it comes with Android or BlackBerry OS, do people have enough faith in BlackBerry?!

If it does arrive in any flavour, these renders are the first in a long time to really make me question my current desire for a 'use in one hand' phone.

What are your views? 

Do you think BlackBerry have lost it? Got the opportunity to regain some share or just focus on specialist sectors?

I know I spend too much on #amazon but the convenience and efficiency of their systems is great. Just looked at my account- 62 orders so far this year, 114 in 2014 & 96 in 2013.  Since 2006 I have placed 507 orders! +Amazon.com I think a FREE #amazonprime  account is in order when my renewal comes up!

Recently purchased a house through Baileys. Good level of service, not pushy in their approach and took the right action when needed. Helpful and friendly staff and did not pester like some of the larger estate agency chains.

Sold my property through the Winton branch. The service provided was superb from start to finish. Dean & Rob are a credit to the company handling enquiries and the whole process. The end of my sale got a bit stressful but the guys handled it well. Even my buyer said that they had done a better job than their agent who they sold theirs through. Would use again if I planned to move anytime soon!

Update: This review was first posted in September 2013. As of May 2015 I still use the services of Nutts about Mutts and my opinions have not changed. I found Nuts about Mutts after searching on the web for dog day care, because a dog sitter I previously used changed her policy on taking dogs that had not been neutered. The service received from day one has been friendly and professional. I use the services of Nuts about Mutts several times a month now when work/life commitments get in the way. For a very reasonable £15 per day my dog is cared for from 8am until 6pm and always seems to come home tired! For the last 2+ months now I have been using there services and have not come across any issues. In fact Lois (the owner) is very accommodating and will work to find a solution for you when necessary. Run from home, the dogs are within a family environment and not stuck in kennels and left there until it is time for a walk. They are free to run around the back garden & play as they like. Unlike some sitters where they take a maximum number of dogs and charge more as a result, with Nuts about Mutts the number of dogs cared for varies, but makes for a good social mix for the dogs and helps with their learning. I can at this time not fault the service and experience I have had with Nuts about Mutts and can only recommend it.

You can not beat this place for location. If you are in town for some serious retail therapy or want to be close to the action, you can not get much better than this. A fairly clean and modern feel inside with all the facilities you will need. I have stayed in worse but stayed in many considerably better. Not as good as a premier in but good value for money. The rooms are a reasonable size and the sleep was good with little in the way of noise. The provided breakfast was simple but not all that appealing in my mind. Staff were friendly and helpful. Parking was free for 24 hours in the modern car park that is available at Gunwharf. I believe this alone will save you about £10 in parking for 24 hours. Stay for longer and it is only £2 per day. I would certainly go back.

Excellent from start to finish. Received a very fair quote, along with different options at different costs. Informative without being pushy on the sale. Phone communication prior to move was excellent and despite opting for a 2 man option, 3 turned up on the day. 3 cheeky guys, but that helped reduce the stress on the day and kept everything light hearted (providing your fuelled them with coffee)! Handled the 4 hour delay in getting keys well and unloaded swiftly. Brilliant! Can't find a fault with them.

Exceptional service. Polite, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Deliver and collect to our business. Most recent order, phoned up told delivery later this afternoon (most acceptable), actually delivered less than 20 minutes after the call. Good old fashioned service.

Ask, Zizi, Pizza Express they are all very good for what you get but walk into one in Bournemouth, London of Manchester and they are virtually all the same, you know what you are getting before you have ordered. At Bellaggio there is an authenticity about the place, a warm vibe that makes the whole experience enjoyable, but the restaurant does not have the décor or feel of an Italian Restaurant that has been around for years and is behind the times. The atmosphere is great, the staff are jovial and help make the evening fantastic. The food is good value and tastes great. It will unlikely be the 'best' you have ever had but certainly better than anything from the major chains. The food was fresh and there was plenty of it and I was extremely satisfied and I doubt you will leave disappointed. I had a Caprese and a Calzone and loved every bit of it. Being able to see the chefs at work also adds to the experience and it is great to see things being made fresh. The 5 of us in our group had an excellent evening and will surely return very soon.
