Has anyone ever bought anything from Colorful Standard? Seems like good for my wardrobe of 100% plain t-shirts, but wondering whether it's worth it. Usually just get UniQlo, which is significantly cheaper.

Will give you the game selection like, and that's why it's struggling. Played absolutely perfect for me through the Chromecast though. No difference at all from the PS4.

Football manager played through a s**** laptop was great too. Haven't had a powerful enough laptop for it for years. Don't need one with stadia.

It'll take a long time to establish itself but it's still the future I reckon.

Signed up with these guys (https://shadow.tech/en-gb/) a few years ago, but stopped as I wasn't using much and it was something like 40 quid a month. Guessing it's a similar thing, but more gamesey?
Had pretty ropey broadband back then, but thought it was unbelievably good/no lag and made a lot of sense for the future if costs came down.

Google Maps and a phone mount, by far the best sat nav you can get IMO.

This, I'd recommend a wireless charging phone mount if your phone supports it.

Bought this TV today:

Has it got HDMI2.1?



No. There's a Nanocell with 2.1 for £900. Is having 2.1 with nanocell better than having 2.0 with QLED?

You really want HDMI 2.1 if you're going to buy a next gen console.

Why is that?

To get higher frame rates that both consoles are capable of.

Sorry for late reply but basically what @neesy111 has pointed out. I would be reluctant to buy anything without HDMI 2.1 when you are gamer.

Having said that most games will probably run best at 60FPS/1080p&4K but you are ruling out the opportunity of running anything at 120FPS for this generation and future ones more importantly..

Just thought I’d flag it up :thup:

Could be more suited to the daft questions thread .

I had some great ancient Adidas tracksuit bottoms that kind of narrowed down the leg used to use them football training and in more recent yrs they were cracking for lounging round in but the missus has thrown them out where can i find similar and what would they be called ? (She's offered to get me some new ones but don't trust her not to go to you know where or get the right type of ones)

I bought a pair of these which I think is basically what you have described. I wanted something comfy but that were slim tapered before I went up to the Hebrides. Good for lounging, driving, walking about when I didn't care what I looked like. They were only £20 at the time and appear now to have more or less sold out:

Perhaps try and find the same ones somewhere else.
Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.
