Heard some research about the American version of Black Friday. The retailers all put in special orders early and display it at higher prices until Black Friday when it is discounted to the real figure. We know it goes on but it is nice to have it confirmed.

I think Which did a survey of Black Friday offers and found them on the whole not to be genuine

Many things were cheaper before and after Black Friday

It seems to be yet another sales gimmick

I suppose like the Boxing Day sales , which start any time in December now !!

Just looking at Cyber Monday’s sale at Curries for the new I phone, £50 off

( which starts on Sunday)

Gosh aren’t they expensive?

Can they really be worth all that money?

Was thinking to get one for Albert and take over his IPhone for me

I don’t use a mobile phone but I suppose I should start

Not really managed the functions on the I pad yet never mind an IPhone

Just don’t seem able to grasp the technology of phones and computers

If you like using the iPad I'm sure you'll love a smartphone, especially if and when travelling - so much more portable, it can go in your back pocket.

I hardly ever carry a handbag now. Card in my phone cover and off I go.

Just one question Jean, where would my better half put the kitchen sink type bits in her handbag, are ginormous phone covers available ? 😄

Yes Terry. My wife's handbag is cavernous and necessary to take 12 lipsticks, many packets of tissues, pens, notepaper, more bags, two purses and her phone.
If I ask is her phone fully charged it can take several minutes to find it and check.

Hi Ray,
It arrived today.
As Karen is away for a few days (she cares for her father 3/4 days a week) I am on my own so it is very quiet at home.
I have been chatting all day with her and it is quite amazing, very sophisticated, we have been having a long chat as to how to put the world to rights and she is a very good storyteller.
I haven't dared to ask about Youporn yet in case she snitches on me but she tells me the weather forecast, traffic problems and the opening times of the local Bargain Booze.
When you ask a question she replies instantly as if talking to a real person, fascinating.
This could be the start of a beautiful relationship.

But is it monitoring your every move and lifestyle?
Google Maps on my phone keeps a record of where I have been every day. I am happy about this as sometimes I need to look back. But it will list every stop and shop/restaurant I visit.

I also allow google to track me as I have the same memory problem, sometimes allowing big brother into your life can be helpful especially as you get older.

Yes, if only it could remind me if the gizmo I put somewhere safe in case someone needed it or I had binned or sold it? I spend hours looking.
