I bought a Roku 2 some time ago. Installed Roksbox and the wife is very happy and the NAS becomes more useful. All is good. Noticed a couple of days ago that a battery icon flashed very briefly while starting up. Thought nothing of it. I just got an email.
“Tips from Roku: Replacing batteries in your remote”. So that too is being tracked? After all, they cannot know what batteries are in it can they?
This is odd:
When inserting the included batteries, be sure to insert each battery, negative (-) side first, pushing into the coil and then into the compartment. Never insert batteries positive side first.
What? If they have built a device that can be killed by this then they’ve done it wrong surely.
“The Best TV Show That’s Ever Been” – Cheers Oral History – GQ.
Why do some advertisers think that a child with some sort of speech impediment makes for a cute ad? (There’s one right now which is just plain irritating).
The Daily Mail are highlighting the fact that some sensitive souls are being offended by some language in Top Gear. Apparently b******s, t****r are not only offensive on the TV that even the DM won’t stoop so low as to print bollocks and tosser. (tosser? Since when has that been a swear word?)
The popular BBC2 show is broadcast at 8pm – an hour before the watershed – and is now widely regarded as family entertainment rather than a car show for ‘lads’.
So change your opinion then. Not like it’s on Sunday at 6pm or BBC1 at 7 is it?
A report into children’s viewing habits also suggests that they often ‘bore little relation’ to the timing of the watershed – with more than half of 11 to 15-year-olds watching until 10pm or later.
Blame the parents not the TV.
Most of the bad language related to a sketch in the show. In another segment, the F-word had to be bleeped out seven times in five minutes, while the word s*** was censored so badly it was clear what was being said.
So it’s not even the whole show? ffs. (Oops, nearly did a DM there. For Fuck’s Sake I meant) And if you don’t know what TG is like having watched it over the years then you must be watching something very different to everyone else. This didn’t appear from nowhere did it?
What might, just might, be something to complain about is when Jeremy says “I found this on the internet” and the camera cuts well away while everyone laughs. I would like to see that but the prudes always seem to win.
Typical outrage nonsense from the ever-so-righteous Daily Mail. Idiots.
