    Camping fridges

    Anyone any hints about solar powered camping fridges? Indeed, do they exist? I know there are 12 volt fridges but do they run a car battery down to flat overnight?

    My watch needs a new battery

    This is not a plea for funds but my watch needs a new battery - getting one will probably double the value of the item that is still pretty accurate for a cheap thing brought many years ago. Mind you that is in sharp contrast to the watches valued at £16,000 given out to more than 25 FIFA...

    iPhone 5

    So the rumour is a 12th September release date due to invites being sent out to Journos. What are you hoping for from the new phone? Speed, battery and bigger screen are my wish which looking at some of the supposed leak pictures should come true for the screen at least I'm also eager to see...

    Anybody else own a nokia x6? I have had mine for about 4 months and it continually freezes up . So much so that the only way to unfreeze it is to take the back off and take the battery out and then restart it. Anybody else with the same phone having that problem?

    Question Wot are you looking forward to this Summer?

    For me, a few obvious things, others a bit more unique. In no particular order: 1. The World Cup, watching every key game (and most of the others) where poss with a beer in hand. Might be a bit challenging at times, for the USA game I am helping out at junior school camp at a sloping field...
  10. Blackberry Trouble

    My Blackberry got wet 2 weeks ago and it still won't work. The only thing that happens when I put my battery in, the flash light comes on. I don't think water damage is covered under the warranty. Help?

    FM2010 (iPhone) Review

    When I was young I used to dream, not of a career in professional football, or of great riches or even of a date with Kim Wilde. Nay, those were the dreams of weaker folk. I dreamed of a portable 'Tracksuit Manager', that mid 1980s Spectrum classic. I dreamed of whiling away long car journeys to...

    A Pig 36 Hours

    We all get them, we all have those days when you wish you could turn back the clock and stay in bed but where would be the fun in that. I knew it was coming because I had prior warning that there was no cover for sunday night and I had already been asked to help out. Not a major problem, I...

    Deadline Day Drama! (sort of)

    Transfer deadline day is one of the most exciting of the season and, with the window slamming shut right on our deadline, you're not going to miss a thing. We told Iain Macintosh to power up his Blackberry, stay tuned to the news and scour the internet for rumours. Here's how his day panned...

    Mr Bechtel....I salute you Sir!!

    One thing about the Aussies is that their hearts and humour are always in the right place! T. B. Bechtel, a City Councillor from Newcastle, Australia, was asked on a local live radio talk show, just what he thought about the allegations of torture of suspected terrorists. His reply...
