Just swapped out the official Twitter app for Plume. What a difference an app makes!

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

I just use the official app, don't have any issues with it so don't see a need to change.

I have a question regarding VPNs. There is something on the UK amazon site that I want on my Kindle App, however, as I'm in Germany it isn't allowing me. I know there are a bunch of VPN apps available, I'm just curious if using one would get round this problem? If so, any recommendations (free)? Ta

There seems to be rather a lot of reports on Twitter of review units of the Samsung Fold breaking.

I'm shocked that the first generation of foldable screen would have issues, shocked and surprised.

These aren't going to he worth looking at for probably 2 generations and even then they will probably still be bulky and that.

Hello my virtual currency.

Yes, this will get round that provided the node you connect to says you're in the country that you want the provider to think you're in.

Most VPN providers allow you to select the country you want to appear to be in -within reason.

I used ExpressVPN, it's not free but I never have problems with it and I bought a year subscription during Black Friday which made it reasonable.

You could always just ask someone in the UK to purchase it for you and gift it to you.

I am surprised by this peelable film that apparently isn't supposed to be peeled off, despite it looking extremely similar to the protective one you get on the majority of electronics. That seems like a major oversight by Samsung.

When is that Samsung foldable one due out? It's just the review units strawberry floating up so you'd imagine they're scrambling to get it sorted for the proper launch.

Got myself the Doogee Y8 from Amazon for £76.

Good for the price, no way it compares to the Galaxys and iPhones. (Though that's on no gooseberry fool sherlock)

Anyone thinking of getting a new Huawei phone, I wouldn’t bother for now.

Their new phones will lose access to the play store and Android. The current phones won’t get any future android updates.

That's very annoying as I got my Huawei for Christmas and hoped it would last 2 years. Now I might have to upgrade this Christmas to the latest pixel.

Wish my image sig would work
