    Erm, right.

    Some of you guys are a real hoot; enjoy all your hoping and finger crossing for BASIC things to be fixed, whilst, on my iPad, I just get on with work, as expected. I am not being rude, but denial is evident in this forum most of the time, and it's just childish to pretend otherwise. I don't think in such a simplistic manner as to assume using an iPad or other Apple device makes me in any way "better" than anyone else (seriously, who thinks like that?) - it's a tool to get things done, and it does them well... and by the looks of things, Hudl 2 is FAR from workable, so if you want to carry on being strung along and fobbed off by Tesco and their Hudl "development team", then please - don't let anyone hinder you, but to be frank, the saving of a paltry ~ £100 between Hudl 2 and iPad just isn't worth the hassle, and I have peace of mind from Apple, as is ALWAYS ALWAYS the case, and always has been ANY TIME I have had the slightest problem with Apple products or services, since the first time I had a MacBook, way back in 2006 (case in point: they've just replaced my TEN YEAR old iPod nano with a brand new latest gen, NO questions).

    It's like this - you're dealing with Tesco, and therefore getting "Tesco value" levels of customer (dis)-service... is it REALLY worth the saving a few quid on? REALLY? Fling their crappy tablet back at them, and move off in a different, sensible tangent, if you value your time (time is worth exponentially MORE than anything money can buy, or save you from).

    Let's get our priorities right, instead of chasing shiny candy - surely it's better for Tesco to sort their issues out first, never mind Lollipop, they can't even sort out BASIC, fundamental issues, so what makes you think a new OS is going to help?

    Magpie syndrome won't help all the faults, you're FAR better off waiting until these issues are fixed FIRST.

    Nope. Got an iPad mini retina, and got on with life :)

  5. glossywhite added a post in a topic EE unlock code reduced to £8.99   

    That's hilarious - reduce the price of the unlock code THREE YEARS after the phone was released, and long, long after everyone's abandoned the junk and moved on. £8.99 is about all the San Diego is worth... never mind the unlock code :D

    Their slogan always makes me laugh:



    Yeah, the future may be bright, but it's a shame your marketing team aren't.

    I couldn't agree more regarding the use of visual media to explain things. Ten paragraphs of dreadfully formatted, mixed typeface (and often, primary school grammar) do nothing to aid clarity; if in doubt, get your camera out.

    You don't _have_ to format it inside the unit, you may format the card using 32KB block size, using "Rufus" on Windows. This is how my 64GB SanDisk was prepared for my Moto G 2nd gen, and nary a problem in 3+ months :)

    If you want guaranteed legitimate branded cards and no hassle, buy from mymemory.co.uk - they're a reputable, official SanDisk/Kingston reseller, and their reputation precedes them.

  9. glossywhite added a post in a topic HDMI out is flaky with my micro HDMI to HDMI cable   

    Please read my post history - I had one, and a family member also has one. Do you think I'd post specific, technical opinions on an item I didn't have a valid viewpoint on, having never had one in my posession? That would make me an idiot, wouldn't it?

    You do have good points there - my language is overly expressive at times, sorry everyone :)

    Tell me; what would be the point of that? People not using HDMI would not be a worthwhile metric in a poll which samples users of the HDMI socket, and determines whether or not the Hudl 2 has an HDMI output fault. That poll option would be utterly irrelevant, and would serve only to provide a metric which is nonsensical when asking people if their HDMI output is working correctly or not. The point of the poll is that people USING this feature report back about its functionality - those who don't use it would just add numbers to a poll, without providing anything useful.
