Re: What have you just bought?

Samsung A3 (2016) for the wee one that will replace his iphone 5c. We will see if he likes the Android system as much as I do.

Re: What have you just bought?

Two pair of glasses,

I need a pair for distance and pair for reading.

£414

Mind you I got 2 for 1 on frames, so my distance pair I ordered transition and the reading pair have a coating for that help with screen use.

Re: What have you just bought?

Installed so I guess it counts: A new Freeview antenna at my mum's cottage in Sennen. Because there's not people here on a continuous basis we let the Sky lapse but the antenna for Freeview blew down in the winter storms. Can't face only having five useless channels so got a man* in to fit a new one.

Got him to fit a new mast and lashing kit as the old one was very rusty. Opted for a mid range log periodic antenna, the old one was a complete POS, 4 year warranty parts and labour. Now got some decent channels and no pixelation.

*I don't do high.

Re: What have you just bought?

Cat flea treatments from France, evading local vet fees of £45 per cat for "health checks" and the same treatments at 42% more expensive.

Re: What have you just bought?

A pair of Denon AH-W200 wireless earphones. While (as noted in http://www.digitaltrends.com/headpho...h-w200-review/) they do have problems with bluetooth dropouts, and awkward controls (which I don't really use), as well as making the user look like he or she is wearing two old school hearing aids, they do sound a lot better than my old Sennheisers, and offer 4 to 5 hours playback on one charge. They also have a wired backup connection, and become passive when that is used, so you can use them even if the battery is flat.

I also bought a Samsung T1 external SSD. Not cheap, but gives 512Gb storage and is blindingly fast on the USB3 socket.

Just bought (well arrived on Weds) a OnePlus 3 - a few niggles but all in all a smashing phone.

Cheers
