Wow 3T and 4T, trouble is I don't know enough people to fully utilise this (40). Or  could I set one up to monitor the sheep and check on the Lambda readings!

New feature in iOS 11.3 just released is a beta battery health check.

My 3 1/2 year old iPhone 6  gets used as a hot spot plugged in for long periods quite a few times each year. Not reporting any issues but it is beta.

I think Smart phones are the greatest advance ever in consumer products. Itís a phone, a messager, an emailer, a diary (auto share with wife!), contacts and now a wallet with Apple Pay. I last drew cash from the bank in November last year. It is a sat nav when driving, walking, sailing everywhere in the world.   When travelling it holds the airline tickets and hotel bookings. 4G is wonderful. I can control and monitor the household heating remotely as well as the PV and battery. At the shallower end, I can also set the TV recorder to ensure I donít miss some nonsense on the box!

Those still using 2G need to recognise that it is likely to be withdrawn in the near future to free up the bandwidth for new uses. It has already been withdrawn in Singapore.

Too many people, imho, haven't thought through the consequences of keeping so much information on their smart phone without adequately catering for the consequences of losing it or worse having it stolen.  When was the last time most users carried out a restore of their backup to a different phone to understand the results of what loss of thiers might cause?

They are deinitely a good invention, but as with many inventions it is likely to take some time before the disadvantages also become clear.

Modern technology has it's price,
         Faceblock did not just entrap it's members, it also entrapped their  friends..As long as you remember , that your new modern smart phone betrays your every movement and contact,, be it good or bad and that all those close , private family conversation are now the property of  foreign entities, who can use, du use, and will continue to use the information stoered on the said smart phones against your democratically elected government.and yourselves.
 This just means that we have to be  smarter and more determined  than ever before..
 We are.now turning I to  a human / honey bee Hybrid ,, with our thoughts and emotions being sensed and directed by a central transmission point. Rational being replaced by . emotions or mood transmission. Just like the honey.bee but without the honey.

I carry one and happily admit it is a clever piece of kit.
It rang the other day, by the time I had fumbled it out of my zipped pocket. Squinted at the screen without reading specs found the right button. Remembered to slide the green button left or was it right? The caller was gone. Got back to the car donned reading glasses dialed the messagerie and listened. It was Mrs T. Asking me to pick up a cauliflower on the way home!

Oh well. surrender

I look at all my friends with envy at all the wonderful things they can do that I can't and wonder how I ever get through life without one. Then methinks to myself, well I don't fly, catch the bus or stay in hotels cos I'm perfectly happy at home. I don't need to turn the heating on or off cos the house is so well insulated we leave it on all the time. The 'prat nav' I have in the car is large enough to actually see, the plotter in my boat has 10" screen is waterproof and has buttons instead of a feckin useless touch screen. The small phone I do have seems to work where all my mate's 'smart' ones don't, fits in the smallest pocket and I aint worried about breaking or losing it every time I sit down, bend down or lean over something. I've a SIM only contract for buttons and can even replace the battery. Sure they're great things, just not for someone who's hands are permanently, wet, grubby, oily and often all three at once. The quality of the pictures they can take never ceases to amaze me, I just don't 'need' to do all those 'cool' things. Perhaps I'll get another of my son's 'cast offs' and try again one day.
