No shortage of toilet or tissue paper around these parts (Hyogo) but I have not seen masks on sale for a long time.

Posted in: Female-centric 'Star Wars' series in works: reports See in context

The Rise of Skywalker was pretty much the end of the line for me. I have no interest in wasting any more time. The much criticised Episodes 1-3 were better than Disney's efforts.

The honour system needs an update. Orders of the British Empire belong to yesterday, not today.

What do you suggest? A special star next to their social media user name?

I wouldn't believe anything Twitter management say. They are no better than the scumbags who run Facebook.

I would like so see this ban work on free speech supporting social networks like Parler or Telegram.

Cowards attack Muslim shrine during Ramadan. Despite what those cowardly bombers might say, their words and actions are empty, and they themselves are no Muslims, and not even human.

You say the bombers are "not Muslims". In fact, the reason the attack happened is because they self identify as Muslims and oppose the beliefs of the Sufi Muslims.

This is why the Democrats are having to resort to collusion hoaxes and phoney allegations against the AG. That is all they have left.

Posted in: In streaming wars, Apple says it can coexist with Netflix See in context

You can be certain Apple will exploit their existing customer's cult-like brand loyalty to over charge for this service. It won't attract many users not already hooked on the Apple Kool-Aid.

I have no interest in having more than one streaming subscription. If multiple services cause the content available on any single service to become highly diluted then I will stop using them completely.

FaceBook have repeatedly lied about what they are doing. Add to that the dumb privacy errors they have made I would not use any of their services.

I thought it was great but I have seen all the other films in this series. I don't think it works as a stand-alone film but as the closing of a very long sequence of films it was a fine effort.

52% vs 48%. How can you such an important decision on such a small percentage? It will trash the economy and shatter many lives. There has to be a second referendum and govt change. 70% should be the nesassary amount needed.

You wouldn't be saying that if the result had gone the way you wished. The vote proceeded under the agreed terms and now the result must acted upon.

If Parliament cannot agree a deal then no deal is the only way the referendum result can be honoured.

Posted in: Apple vs Netflix: Why turf wars are flaring in big tech See in context

Apple hardware lasts so much longer, so cheaper in the end. My mac's are 2010, and 2012, so 9 years and 7 years and still going with the original components except for the HDD's which I changed to SSD's. I also use a trackpad from 2007, 12 years and still using an iPad 3 from 2012, 6 years but probably will update that this year. Also a shiny new Xr iPhone from last year.

I have a Sony VAIO laptop that is over 7 years old and still in use. I maxed out the RAM and changed to an SSD. It cost a lot less than a Mac would have done.

There is nothing magical about Apple hardware. The thing which most differentiates Apple hardware from the competition is that people love the brand so much they are happy to be overcharged.

That and the really terrible keyboards.

Posted in: Japan's beef imports from TPP members soar more than 50% in January See in context

I prefer Japanese domestic beef generally. The marbled fat is fine because it adds flavour while not making the meat tough to eat.

When I do buy imported beef I go for Australian. I bought some cubed curry beef for a great price from Sandi supermarket at the weekend and was delicious. Super lean and melted in the mouth.

I have not bought a new PC for some years. This not because I have been spending money on tablets. I have never owned one. My exisiting PC is in good condition and does everything I need. I can remember the time when I felt compelled to upgrade for better performance but that was a long time ago...

I have been sleeping on a futon for a couple of years now. Now that I am used to it I find it comfortable for my back.

If I stay at an expensive Western-style hotel with a really nice bed I find it a luxurious change. I do really enjoy staying at ryokan too, though...

It would be sad to see Xperia sold off. I have both a VAIO laptop and an Xperia mobile and have been very happy with both of them. I was planning on upgrading to an Xperia Z3 soon but if Sony are about to sell off the mobile division...

Music Unlimited was crap.
