Its that time of year again, when we are getting ready for Christmas, family and Santa. Sadly not everyone will be looking forward with anticipation, instead simple hoping for food, warmth or a small present. Thankfully there are goups like 'Little Blue Heroes' and 'Barnados' out there. Both help the youngest and most vulnerable in society and this Christmas we ask that you join us in making a donation at https://www.littleblueheroes.org/donate/ or https://www.barnardos.ie/christmas

What's the most annoying feature or restriction on a gadget you ever saw?

There's loads but one that just got me, TV DVD combo but there's no enter button on the side of the TV just play, pause and open.

Fucking stupid!!!

Often the sheep do not like the sheepdog,  until the wolf comes.  Then the sheep try to hide behind the sheepdog, begging for his protection.

My DVD player is the same. You should be able to operate the thing without the remote.

I don't like that you can't flick between two channels on a Sky remote. Years ago you had a button on ordinary remotes to go back and forth between two channels.
It's not the HSE's opinion, it's not managements opinion, it's mine. All mine.

Apple phones not allowing you to access the file system when plugged into a computer. 

And if you are having issues with remote controls download Sure remote.

Press the Select Button and the blue button or may be other way round. That switches between the last channel you were watching
