An 'early night' is suggested but you are watching NF and it's a tough choice.

Carwow UK looks at practicality and comfort and has separate section for the infortainment units. It is of course euro cars but a lot of it applies to cars sold here. The videos are enjoyable to watch as well.

It does.

 

I remember when I was a nipper at boarding school, we would come home for Christmas around 10-14 days before Christmas Eve. That 10-14 days was, possibly, the longest period of time ever. Now, Christmas is about every 5 minutes...!

When you get amused about the next buzzwords coming along. My favorites: 'digital detox' and 'dark data'.

Is 'Dark data' something new? I reckon Bureaucracies have been collecting this on paper for years, we just finally have a name for it.

 

Maybe you know you're getting old when you remember physical bureaucracies and all their paper forms.

(Mods: I won’t be offended if you delete this - maybe a bit on the fringe).
