    I don't think they should all carry the video. But the fact he posted it is news. Maybe not headline news, but still worth reporting. When the president of the USA takes a poo, it's news.

    You don't think the continued efforts of the president of the USA to overthrow an election counts as news? I don't think news sources should be making the decision to pretend this isn't happening,...

    Shopping is already an 'experience' for me, it's just a terrible one. The best 'shopping experience' is to sit in the pub while someone else does the shopping.

    This is not a particularly exciting speech and at 45 minutes, neither is it a short one - watch a couple of minutes to get the gist. But it does strike...

    I loved the premise - probably I should read the book - but it seemed like a show relying on that one cool thing which got old fast. Tough to drag out one premise into 100 episodes.

    When I was last looking at NAS I was leaning towards something with a Celeron chip as it allows much more 'server' behaviour, you can run Plex and VMs, etc. But it ups the cost quite a bit.
