    iPhone magsafe case and jean pockets!

    Yep it’s pretty good at that. If it’s a major issue then you’re only other option is to get the leather MagSafe case, no sticking or lint hoovering with that.

    Affinity Team Spring Sale

    Totally agree. I find it an excellent alternative to Photoshop at barely a snip of the cost. To be fair, Photoshop still edges it slightly for features but only the most avid of users or Pro's would notice. Personally I haven't found a single thing I can't do in Affinity that I couldn't do in PS...

    Can a SIM card just die?

    Never mind - my replacement SIM arrived this morning and all is working. So it does indeed seem the previous SIM just kicked the bucket. Well it was because A) It's never happened to me before and B) The SIM wasn't even a year old but hey, at least I know now.

    Can a SIM card just die?

    My Sky Mobile SIM just stopped working today pretty much out of the blue. Full disclosure I did pop it out of my phone into my 4g router as my regular 3 signal was misbehaving and generally being quite slow. When I put the SIM into the router it just did nothing which seemed odd. I then put it...

    VR Headset for Sim Racing

    Thanks, will keep an eye out. Just a quick update, got sidetracked at home for a few days and have since decided to hold off for a little while and not rush into buying just for now. I’m keeping an eye out for a used Quest 2 as was recommended by @ShiWarrior. I got cold feet taking the full...

    VR Headset for Sim Racing

    Thanks for all that! Currently running i5 8600k and GTX 1080 (neither are currently overclocked). I do fully intend a rebuild as soon as I can get a 3xxx series card without having to re-mortgage the house. As for titles, it’s really just Dirt Rally and F1 these days. I dabble in Project Cars...

    VR Headset for Sim Racing

    Well I plan to pick up the Quest 2 today and the cable won’t be arriving until tomorrow so I may just give it a spin over WiFi and see. The concern is the Mesh network I use which I read somewhere in the product information that mesh WiFi was not recommended - although one of the nodes is...

    VR Headset for Sim Racing

    I have an MSI Z-370 A Pro which according to the manual anyway has 3.1 Gen 1 Ports - so that I assume that should be fine?

    VR Headset for Sim Racing

    Thanks all. I think I’m going to pop into Argos tomorrow or Wednesday and pick up the Quest 2. I appreciate I could go used for slightly less but I figure I may as well go somewhere I can return it in case it really just doesn’t work out for me. I’ll also pick one of these cables up which came...

    VR Headset for Sim Racing

    I had a quick Google for it there, is there actually any retail outlets in the UK it can actually be purchased from?

    VR Headset for Sim Racing

    Thanks for that, I think I could try and live with the standard strap for a while - having a little one in the house my sessions rarely last more than an hour at a time anyway :p Is there any particular USB3 cable you would recommend? I have found the latency with the AirPods absolutely fine...

    VR Headset for Sim Racing

    I know it may seem utter madness but I have actually started using my AirPods as my gaming audio. I find them more comfortable than over ear options plus the Dolby Atmos support is pretty good with them - hence why I said audio isn't all that important although I'm absolutely open to suggestions...

    VR Headset for Sim Racing

    I’m thinking of finally getting into VR, partly because I plan to get rid of my UW monitor and clear some space and mostly because the new F1 title is set to support it. The whole VR thing is a minefield for me as I have absolutely no experience with it. All I need/want is a good headset...

    *** The official 2022 iPad Air thread (it has an M1, 5G and everything!) ***

    Yeah it certainly adds a bit of heft to proceedings but I don't mind it - it's quality heft :D It also makes you realise just how light the iPad itself is in comparison when not docked. I agree, the trackpad is excellent - especially for what it is. Compared to the MacBook it's obviously not as...

    Cheapest UK 4G and 5G Unlimited Mobile Data Plans Compared – 2022

    Interesting to see that latency hasn't improved with 5g. I average that with my Smarty 4g. It's all moot for me anyway, I doubt I'll see 5g in my area this decade.

    AirPods (and AirPods Pro) now available

    The options to let me control the actions on each AirPod aren’t showing in my settings - they show up on my Gen1’s. It’s the options below Name and above Automatic ear detection in the device settings.

    AirPods (and AirPods Pro) now available

    Yep got mine yesterday, seems I was one of the lucky ones that slipped through the net, it’s a shame they’ve made such a mess of it. I’m still having a few teething problems with mine. Still haven’t sussed why the options for Left/Right controls are missing from the settings. And I also...

    AirPods (and AirPods Pro) now available

    3’s arrived today and I’m very happy with them. If I had to choose I would say the Gen 1’s are actually a little more comfortable but only marginally - they’re a much better fit for me than the Pro’s were anyway. One thing I can’t understand, I have no Left/Right option in my Bluetooth settings...

    *** The official 2022 iPad Air thread (it has an M1, 5G and everything!) ***

    Yep the one with the USB port on the spine. I went with the white - no particular reason, I just prefer it. For the colour it’s held up well - it doesn’t get grubby like you’d expect.

    *** The official 2022 iPad Air thread (it has an M1, 5G and everything!) ***

    At this stage it purely comes down to personal preference - either option does its job and does it well. I can make a case for and against either and at the end of the day I can’t say one is better than the other, it just comes down to what works best for the user.
