So today I learned my mum took her phone to Tesco Mobile in-store because it wasn't opening web links. It turns out that's because Chrome had 158 tabs open.

To be fair, none of the providers will give you a WiFi router that’s close to being decent. BT, Plusnet, Virgin and TalkTalk all send out poor quality, bottom-of-the-range kit that’ll just about get y

Just remember that the single best "smart" feature you can buy on a TV is "more HDMI sockets." Don't rely on any built-in apps/streaming services/whatever that could be switched off or unsupported at

My laptop got lost moving house a few years back and I never bothered to replace it, however I'm looking at learning Linux, R & some other assorted, because I've been told the training we're getting isn't going to be enough and it's worth a bit of extra if you want, which I do as it's an area of interest. However I don't want to be running it on my work laptop as its a ballache to do anything with our security setup, so I need a new personal one. 

As with everything my first port of call is the good ship UKFF for recommendations. I'm after something which will have a suitable spec, laptop ideally but desktop would be OK too, to use free lab spaces and courses without being ripped off as a massive technology rube.

Not really sure where to post this but tomorrow Bill and Ted Face The Music comes out in the US. I'm pretty desperate to see it and have no problem paying for it. Anyone know if I used a VPN I could rent it on Amazon.com or something? Anyone else got a plan to see it? I've got a PS4, Laptop and a firestick.

EDIT - gone with getting expressvpn and renting it on Vudu. Hopefully I haven't just thrown away 30 quid.

Please let me know if it works!

Yep worked a treat. Vudu has a paypal option so I paid using that.

My laptop has finally gone kaput - had it since around 2012 so I can't really complain.

I'm a tight Yorkshireman, so I'm looking for a cheap, basic replacement - as all I basically use it for is to play Champ Manager 01/02.

I've just had a Google but I've no idea what I'm looking for. Anyone any recommendations for basically a laptop with a DVD/CD Drive so I can ignore the wife whilst she's watching Bake Off?

Cheers.

Might be worth looking at getting notebook and a separate external cd drive? Do you need the Cd in all the time or just for installing?

Just for installing.

All I want to do is bang the CD in then play the game.

My life is boring and simple.

I have one for work, VMWare fusion is pretty easy to use but I think the licence is a bit dear. Plus you need to buy a windows licence. I think VirtualBox is free but requires a bit of faffing about with SIP and the like: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Mac OS X build instructions

If you can contemplate a dual boot solution, I think boot camp is still a thing? Or maybe they sacked it off. Was still possible as of 10.12.6.

So I had to replace my TV and ended up with a 4k one.

I don't really have anything 4k though. My Fire Stick isn't 4k. My Xbox isn't. My Sky Q isn't. My Netflix subscription isn't.

Is it worth upgrading any of them? I see Disney Plus is offering a lot of 4k content. Just wondered what the quality jump was like.
