But why do you need such immediate access to the power button? Gyro wakes the phone, so does the home button so the only need to such power button placement is youre watching porn and need a bosskey. ;)



Also can I add modern tech naming conventions. I was shopping for a kindle there and we have..... The kindle, the new kindle, the all new kindle, waterproof paperwhite which isnt all new or even new but is newer than the all new and new kindles! The ipad, the new ipad and now the iphone X to top things off! The galaxy tab, the tab a, the tab a with spen, what was wrong with using note to show it was an spen product? Its so beyond dumb and is only a thing so people dont really know what the hell they are buying without research, They are just assuming/hoping customers are dimwits and also hoping to confuse the second hand market.
I used to be eVoL but I got better.
I like everything now.

No, they are just saying "Buy new shinies you fuckwits". 99% of people have no bloody idea what changes are on the latest version of ShinyTech's Latest Thang.

Spanish teenagers, holy fuck balls but is there a more annoying entity on the planet than a gang of these fuckers? They flood the city during the summer months like some sort of biblical plague, clogging up the busiest streets and all talking at once like words are going out of fashion. I like Spanish people but hate their teenagers.

YouTube increasingly recommends me videos that I've already watched. I keep telling them I'm not interested because I've already watched them but here I am, with several more recommendations for videos I've already watched. :x

We've a whole bunch of them shacked up atm in the student digs near the Co-op near work, presumably a summer English course or something. Loud, rude, and fucking annoying, but distinguishable from the Chinese contingents we get more of because they're all a rich mahogany tan.

On the subject of Youtube, the app's endless nagging for me to upgrade to premium is going beyond a joke. Were the previous several thousand responses of "No, fuck off" not a clue?

If it was reasonably priced rather than the embarrassing £12.99 a month they're asking, I'd probably sign up to get it to stop asking.

Moral: Don't use YouTube on your phone, innit.

I think.

YouTube, OK then...

The whole concept of YouTubers shits me right off. I have channels that I watch and enjoy, mostly around motoring and motorsports, but unfortunately that brings with it a deluge of utter cunts. Trust fund kiddies who are all, like, oh my gohhhhhhhd, come with me to, like, pick up my new Lamborghini - needless to say I detest them. Thankfully you can usually spot their videos as they have massive OMG!!! splashes across the screen-cap for every single video they post but occasionally one might slip through the net.

Worse still is that these vapid shit-smears can cross-pollinate on occasion into videos from people I like. There is nothing worse than "Oh on this trip I met up with ShouldHaveBeenAWank from CuntyMcCuntyson channel, link in the details...". Actually there is. There is the fact that these silver spoon motherfuckers start to get fame, money and sponsorship for being silver spoon motherfuckers. I loathe them.

Generally I agree with Vincent Vega on what should happen if you fuck with another man's automobile, but please let me see one of theirs parked up, my keys would positively leap into my hand!

If I'm honest, if Snowy started a Youtube channel that was just him ranting about various facets of modern life, I would 100% subscribe :lol:

But then if I became an... ugh... "influencer" I would have to kill myself live on camera.

It would teach Angry Joe that he is only mildly ticked off though.

Obnoxious Joe does my head in. I used to rely on Youtube characters for news and reviews a few years ago but now I find that I just can't stand listening to any of them. There doesn't seem to be any chilled out ones who don't just play up to some dumb personality.
