Well....

To be honest, I've always had a 'thing' about watches and have quite a collection....

...this one allows me to have a different watch (face) every day if I want.... Some of them are beautiful.... Plus, I hope that I can make a face (you can create your own) that allows me to see the time and date without squinting as I have to with my Seiko Kinetic....

So, it looks to be a very attractive and flexible watch for me first and foremost...

In addition, I've quite got into 'OK Google' thing and find it quite useful - see also, setting reminders and setting the alarm, etc.

And lastly, as you say you can be informed of important e-mails - you can set filters so that you don't get informed every time somebody posts a picture of their breakfast on Faceache or anything like that...

...it clearly is Version 1.0 of the software (and phone) and I don't doubt that more powerful models will be available in time but I am excited about having this one now....

Ta, will be interested to see how you get on with it.   The early smart watches of years by were clearly bollocks but these seem to be a real deal by linking them to the phone.

Problem is I really like contemporary style watches.  One I've had over 40 years and still works fine but then I like gadgets too.

So has the Moto 360 arrived yet?

Had a play with one of these today.  It's a bit big and I prefer the old fashioned watch Mrs K gave me but gotta say it is a superb piece of kit.  Brilliant display esp as a watch and very easy to switch through different information loaded views.

Methinks this sort of watch is the future

Had a play with one of these today.  It's a bit big and I prefer the old fashioned watch Mrs K gave me but gotta say it is a superb piece of kit.  Brilliant display esp as a watch and very easy to switch through different information loaded views.

Methinks this sort of watch is the future

No!  Banghead Banghead Banghead

Order processing was delayed because the ebay computers went haywire.... they (ebay) sent me a lovely e-mail saying they blamed the robots - I was not impressed...  evil:

So, the supplier posted it quickly on the 1st April ( evil:) and it left Chermany on the 4th - arriving in Cyprus on the 7th....

It finally became 'Ready for pickup' today at 13:30...

BUT ready for pickup (The recipient has been informed) means that is has arrived at Limassol post office - they will have sent a message to the village post office telling me that I have a parcel there...

SO I won't get that notice for a couple of days or more....

AND it is Greaster this weekend so everything is shut down until next Wednesday...

SO the watch I originally ordered from Amazon on the 19th March won't be in my hands (or on my wrist) until the 16th or 17th of May!  cussing:

It is amazing how circumstances can conspire against you.....  cussing:

BUT it is excellent news that you have actually tried one and think it is cool!  :thumbsup:

We did this topic a couple of years back and you said you wanted one then.  It's called a Blue King track and once upon my time (45 years ago) the lap times were ~ 4 seconds, now they do under 1.5 seconds for a 150 foot track  eeek:

Shoot Mr. Burglar in the face with a .22 from your CO2 pistol and he will have second thoughts on removing your valuables...

...even better, shoot Mr. Burglar in the trunk with 24g of #8 from your shotgun (which you were cleaning in your bedroom) and he will never think of burglaring again... or anything else for that matter!  :thumbsup:

If it did I'd also be tasering the eejit who took the little scrote on without performing any checks on him. Took me all of 5 minutes googling the local papers to find a fairly substantial criminal record stretching back over a decade.  Head office may not justify the cost of DBS checks on staff in positions where common sense says they should be required but it shouldn't take a genius to look through old newspapers online and think 'Hmm, committed robbery while threatening to brain the shop assistant with a metal bar and was arrested again for theft while on probation for it.

Perhaps we shouldn't offer him a job' cussing:

Will Alexa become self-aware and try to take over the world with an army of cybernetic organisms? (https://www.amazon.co.uk/forum/-/Tx1FECXT5PHW93J/a6/ref=ask_dp_dpmw_al_hza?asin=B01DFKBL68#6)

I'm fascinated by the technology - plus it integrates with my multi-room music system...   cloud9:

So I can ask her to play something in the kitchen, something else in my Man Cave and something else in the lounge... not that I ever would obviously but the technology!  Drool:

And it was only £45 delivered as they have somehow given me a free 1 month subscription to Prime...*  rubschin:

Amazon Prime is very good.  I was very caustic about it when they doubled the price and threw in fillums but not for the first or last time I was wrong  redface:

But voice input systems are in my experience way too often more error prone, slower and take more effort than virtual button/keyboard driven ones.  They have their place yes but a very narrow one, fighter pilots being an example where they work but then again only for some functions.

We shall see... On-line video reviews are very impressive (not Amazon ones)...

I don't think Prime even works here for streaming and stuff so I shall cancel before the end of the month...

Free next-day delivery while LL is in the UK has been good tho...  cloud9:

...prolly offset by excess baggage charges at Gatwick next week...  redface:

Yes if your Amazon Prime address is in the UK then maybe streaming won't work in Cyprus unless of course you have a VPN to circumvent the geoblocking (legality unclear).  And somehow I suspect you have.

Indeed!

The problem is that the first thing the app does is ask for your Amazon account name and password... not sure I want to risk giving that away to an 'unknown source'. As i said, if any of those sites had user reviews (even though a spam site would be likely to leave 'don't download this, a dodgy Nigerian bloke raped my Amazon account' on the list), I'd be happier...  rubschin:

In terms of Google Home it really works excellently and is much more efficient than a remote for keyboard input.
Yes but we were talking about increasing the volume not writing a sentence

Would you (do you?) use voice input for your posts here?

No, horses for courses... ::)

It is easier to ask it to increase the volume than find the remote or the appropriate ap on my phone or walk to the HiFi and twiddle the knob... It just really is.

I just asked it to play 'Revolution by the Beatles' and it is now playing... Much easier than finding the track on an ap or PC...

Does it werk if you are pished. like? rubschin:

It does... especially, "hey Google, increase volume"  redface:
Somehow the volume button on the remote seems less effort, a lot less

Depends where you are in relation to the remote of course...  whistle:
And IF you can find it

I detest voice input systems, as an avionics designer my bosses were always trying to get me to embellish proposals with how we'd add voice input and I'd pretend to humour them.  For simple commands it only works better than a button in very niche circumstances and it becomes a toy rather than a tool.  Imagine trying to fly your quadcopter with voice.

Ah now we understand.  You bought a cheap phone without those up down buttons on the side

My £4 bluetooth speaker has same linked by bluetooth to sync volume with the phone

But yes IF you want a particular track or the remote is hidden under a pile of lego bricks (or jammed by bread crumbs) then voice I/O has a place.  I just pick an album or music theme and let it play.

An Alexa that I can turn off

So after tests I declare that Fire Stick Alexa is effin useless.  Mostly she says something like "what?" but occasionally does mishear.  "Play the Beatles" interpreted as "I've selected this music for you (Creedence Clearwater Revival) "  ::)

But the Fire Stick itself is brilliant - especially for photos we've stored on Amazon so now I have two

How strange, she gets 3,000+ five star reviews on Amazon...?  rubschin:

Quote from: An Amazon Reviewer
Great quality and works very well. I already had a Prime subscription so the inclusion of all the videos and music is a real bonus. The Alexa voice recognition is amazing, you can even pell out the tricky words. No more fumbling around trying to find movies or series. I plug it straight into my AV amp HDMI input, and it works perfectly, giving me perfect 4K when available and full surround sound. The sound quality from this thing is brilliant. Like Google, I think Amazon own brand products are spot on.

Anyhoo, I'm still well impressed with the Google Home and Google Play Music combo, we spent all last night playing music and drinking collapso... Everything from pop, rock, classical, shows, opera, even classical guitar, "Play Asturias by John Williams", she was spot on with everything...  Thumbs:

Miss A (a huge Apple fanboy) was rather upset on Sunday when Google out-performed Siri...

Who won the FA Cup final in 1973?

Siri: Arsenal facepalm:
Google: Sunderland

Who was their manager?
Siri: shrugs:
Google: Bob Stokoe

And the answer to the inevitable question, "Hey Google, who is better, you or Siri?"

Google: Siri is a very good Siri and I am a very good Google!  lol:

Right after a further play with Alexa (that sounds so so not right) . . . .

I was Wrong! redface:
 

Test 1:  "play the Beatles"  ->  "Now shuffling the Beatles""

Test 2: "play the Rolling Stones" -> "Now shuffling the Rolling Stones"

Must have taken her a while to get used to me voice

To be honest given the weird stuff going on with them changing the way content providers get money from ads, which is probably going to lead to a fairly significant exodus to sites like Patreon, blocking video access themselves wouldn't have surprised me.

Bonkers expensive but were effing brilliant for those long flights.

We've got Bose noise cancelling... QuietComfort 3....

But Emirates include them on the flight...  whistle:
So do BA (and so do we)

Now try sleeping on your side with them on.  Then look at the quiet comfort 30's

Upstairs on a 380 then...?

Nope

Was up front in a 777

BA don’t do 380s. A decision it seems they got right as they constrain scheduling

Looks better for less money imho


Here's a tip (you've prolly already sussed):  if you have a dashcam take it with you (+ loads of memory cards)   Helps if some local runs into you and we just had fun fast forwarding of us driving over the bridge, round Sydney, Centennial Park etc etc.  Most of the coverage is just boring highway and town driving but then you get those moments that are brilliant

If only I'd taken loads of cards and changed them often.  All the Blue Mountain driving was written over  Banghead

The Sony has optical image stabilisation which works at 4K and roduces impressive results... but the GoPro is waterproof and as you say, substantially cheaper (although I've spunked moar cash away on a second battery and a zillionteen mounts...

Good call on the dash cam, I was going to use the GoPro but it would be simpler to have one on the screen all the time - mine has a 32Gbyte card in it and lasts ages...

I'm also taking a 1Tb USB disc with me that I can dump photos and videos onto...
Title: Re: I WANT!

32 Gbyte lasts just under 6 hours of HD recording in mine.  I was stunned how good the results were.

But micro SD cards are cheap as chips now

J is happily marrried but is nuts. She got it into her head to enter Robot Wars so built a monstrosity that scared the living shite out of me. The weapons she put into the bloody thing would have had DARPA drooling. Fortunately none of them were allowed under the rules although it would have been interesting seeing the house robots go head to head with the rocket propelled harpoon.

So...

We had a Dyson in the UK which was brill...

When we came here we had a series of cheap vacs which were all shite and we eventually bought an (incredibly expensive) Dyson...

When  we moved to the apartment we bought a cheap vac (Dyson left at the house) which was shite... Sold that and bought a more expensive (samsung) vac which is shite... Should have got a cordless Dyson but it was €€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€€s....

I reckon RoboVac will suit us perfectly...  rubschin:

The printer...?

I have parts of it... ::)

The main bit is still en-route from China to Brussels...  noooo:

So no, not really, nothing I can actually print with.   evil:

I've learned a lot from YouTube already though and have done some (fairly simple it has to be said) 3D design, slicing, etc.  :thumbsup:

Can we look forward to the all new 3D Virtual Pub?  No more lame text and 2D picture posts, everything has to be in full animated 3D.  Right in your face like

They ship free by courier... They ship via Brussels so I don't have to pay duty and VAT on it... not sure how they manage that...  rubschin:

Anyhooo.... I ordered the printer plus an optional glass printing bed and a roll of filament. I got the glass bed and filament in a couple of days but no printer. Apparently, they are en-route between China and Brussels... ::)

They did offer me the chance to cancel but I've asked them to chuck in some free stuff instead...

It is annoying 'cos I deliberately didn't order before Xmas as I thought it was sure to arrive when I was in the UK...  Banghead

Aha

I've bought Canadian booze via France so I didn't have to pay duty and VAT on it.  It's legal as its paid by the original importer from the EU - well it should be.  The UK apparently has a very sus record on that and as a result we owe £Bs in unpaid duty related EU contributions.

Last week there were signs of a clamp down on Chinese sites selling via Amazon and eBay  https://news.bloombergtax.com/daily-tax-report-international/uk-red-flags-tax-evading-sellers-to-amazon-ebay-alibaba-2

I ordered this  (https://www.gearbest.com/ip-cameras/pp_009991451325.html?wid=1433363)on November 28th...

Thought it would be fun to keep an eye on the dog while I was out and also perhaps a bit of extra security while we were away over Xmas...

...arrived in the village yesterday... facepalm:

Left Brussels on December 15th and got to Cyprus on January 5th...

...then another 7 days to get to Pissouri from Larnaca!  lol:

Drone mode at the moment for the initial testing but the pilots position will be added soon. Given that during the summer down here the farmers take sadistic pleasure in driving as slowly as possible while towing a load of the foulest slurry you can imagine being able to fly over them would be a godsend.

When I did a lot of work for Motorola I stayed in a hotel near the factory in Scotland...

I used to take a Motorola phone when I visited as a sign of loyalty although mobiles weren't allowed in the factory itself...

In the hotel bar one evening there were a load of production line workers and one of them looked at my shiny new Motorola (it was at the time when tiny was better) and said, "that phone is shite!". happy001

When I worked at BHF we had two leather massage chairs donated (all singing all dancing, heat settings, different massage programs etc). Considering how cheap the pair of them were if I could have been bothered with the hassle of getting it up the stairs into my place I'd have bought one. We ended up making more money letting people use them for 5 minute sessions for a quid that we sold them for.  :thumbsup:

It's a Razr product though so something tells me this is not going to be cheap.  noooo:

Jeez that does look the dogs bollocks in masks doesn't it?
 
Sadly not available yet even in the USA and I want one  angry041:

What do we reckon for UK price and availability.  My guess £150 and half past lockdown 5.0

They announced it as CES so I don't think it's all that far away from launching, Q2 maybe early Q3 I'd guess.

To be honest price wise I'm not sure, Razr know they have a product that will likely sell loads. Hell even if the only people who bought it are their core pc gamer component market they still stand to make millions out of it so they could afford to lower the price somewhat for the good publicity. I'm going to guess £75-£100

Considering they are a PC and component manufacturer its still an impressive bit of retooling  :thumbsup:

Looking on their website their current cloth and disposable masks are on sale for £20-30 so £75ish for Project Hazel may not be that far off.

Some of the other concept projects on there look really tempting as well. BM may find a use for Project Ariana if he ever tries to build minema mk2.
