  1. iPhone iOS 11 / 11.0.1 - Anyone having issues?

    The problem with Android, for me, is that the apps are 'un-packed' as needed (ie: only when you open/use them' and then they're discarded 'till next time, like a virtual box. This increases the computing power, memory and battery needed which is why they often have much much better specs than an iPhone, but only perform fractionally better in rare cases. For Apple, they may not be as revolutionary as they once were, but once you're in the ecosystem, it's hard to leave. Licenses, and DRM make that near impossible without having to spend again for what you already 'own'. The iPhone iOS was designed with simple people in mind. It's not difficult to do anything on there, you can pretty much use it without a second grace a lot of the time. Their rendering of colours and imagery is great, their music is now of a much better standard (FLAC is a lossless audio format) and with the removal of the 3.5mm headphone jack they can loose the reliance on the tinny sound that came from the interface and improve the digital sound quality by using the MFi certification and the lightning port. Android handsets often also come with excess bloatware that is hard coded into the OS and the manufacturer's " layer" that the user cannot change. Apple do this also, however the amount of apps is far far less, and now you can delete at least some of these that aren't necessary for core functionality. Having android handsets accept expandable memory is a huge advantage, but also a security risk. There are far more phishing and trojan apps in the Google play store than the App store hands down, and being able to accept apps from unsigned sources is hands down the most detrimental thing to their platform. Great for testing (I use it all the time) but then apps don't need the basic accreditation before use and could be potentially very very dangerous not only to that one user but to the network and many others. It's horses for courses, and whatever vendor meets the users needs and requirements. I use an iPhone 7+ as my personal handset, a Blackberry KeyOne as one work handset (gave back the latest Krypton on Friday) and also a OnePlus5 as a third (test) device. Just my thoughts and experience. Deepan

  5. iPhone iOS 11 / 11.0.1 - Anyone having issues?

    There's a major problem with the software at the moment with some apps being broken completely and restores from ipsw files don't work. My engineering build is phooked. Won't be fixed till 11.1
  6. iPhone iOS 11 / 11.0.1 - Anyone having issues?

    Not seen that issue, but it's common for older handsets not to reproduce the visual effects as well. FYI 11.0.2 should be out by the end of the week. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Apologies. My intention was to highlight not only his ineptitude, but that also of the hierarchical institutions of "government" of a lot of nations, not just USA, at their arms control and manufacture. It's a multi-billion dollar/pound/rupee industry. Maybe even trillion, but if it were to stop, that money could be better repurposed into other ventures to better society. It's a poo poo situation to be in. Sadly the greed of the few lay suffering to the many.

  9. 20mm Hubcentric Wheel Spacers & Bolts

    These should fit all except pre-1992 BMWS and E39. E39 had a centre bore of 74.1mm and E30 had 57.1mm not sure about E28 etc. E36 after *should* all be 74.1mm. So to answer your question, yes. It should fit the E61. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. SOLD

    As the gentleman has said, there's enough there to know it's a diesel. The splash guards and undertray are rubbish. Worthless I'm afraid. Deepan
  12. SOLD

    ChicaneUK, A picture would help, I'm trying to get rid of the car as a whole, or whole parts at the moment. Should that fail, you're welcome to it. Deepan
  13. SOLD

    Full sentences please. The car is located in Northolt, West London. Deepan

  15. Cost effective or heresy?

    Depends on the breather hose itself, but if for example you're talking about the turbo vacuum hoses, then as long as the composite material is near enough the same then happy days, bobs you're uncle and all that. I did the same with my E30 turbo vacuum hoses (8mm diameter) and used eBay's finest as opposed to Samco etc and haven't had an issue at all. If I do, it's pennies to replace. My two rupees. Deepan
