TheMarket. Worse pricing, less flexible delivery options, pretty average customer service.

All the new tech that's being released right now. 

 

New Apple everything

 

New GoPro cameras

 

New other stuff. 

 

 

 

I have absolutely no justification to buy any of it. Bloody annoying!!

If it makes you feel any better, the new iMac is a buggy mess.

If I am honest it could all be absolute rubbish and the magpie in me would still just see new shiny stuff that I don't have and make me feel the same as I do right now. 🤯

The "shuffle" feature in streaming music services never really shuffles properly.  I currently use Youtube Music and have a playlist of about 700 songs, but it tends to shuffle only those songs I have recently added.  I had a similar problem when I used Spotify.

 

In a similar vein, though Youtube Music is pretty good overall, the inability to search within a playlist is frustrating.

Useless Virtual Support Assistants. I didn't click on Contact Us to talk to a bloody machine.

 

eg

 

The service you have requested is currently experiencing some problems and isn't available right now. Wait a while and then try again.

 

Did this solve your problem? Yes / No

That every time there is a news story having anything to do with needles (vaccinations, drugs, diabetes, blood donation, what have you), the camera operator insists on repeatedly zooming in and endlessly dwelling on prolonged shots of the shots. I am not a needle-phobe but what is with this obsession with lingering close-ups of the damned things going in? Is this some kind of camera person deformity? We all know by now what an injection looks like. Focus on a flower or something for goodness sake!

Check that it's not a weighted shuffle, they may be giving a greater weight to things they think you'd want to hear more, like for example recently-added ones.

Same seems to apply to offline music players. :( Seems that songs get onto some kind of high rotate list. Even selecting "Play songs I haven't heard yet" seems to get repeats.

 

You would think that this would be an easy thing to get right... create an index associating a random number with each song, then play in the order of the numbers. So you have to assume that the behaviour is intentional.

LG Smart TV flashes up a notification saying “Updates available for some apps” - with a go-to arrow. It’s there for about three seconds and by the time you reach for the remote to use the go-to, the notification and the arrow are gone. So then you have hunt around in apps and settings to find which one(s) it was referring to.





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Companies which ask for an email address to email a payment receipt to, that NEVER arrives! (Yes I checked the SPAM filter)

 

2 out of the last 3 this week have never arrived!

 

(Cynical view is that they are just harvesting email addresses - I now await their advertising!)

The height of the PS5. Having just built a new unit for all my AV toys, the PS 5 is 5mm too tall.
