Each year the major supermarkets try to out do each other when it comes to their Christmas commercials. There's that slight American Superbowl-style commercial feel to it, with who's going to have the bigger and best one.
Whilst having a little jolly online, I did come across a few keys as to what'll be included in a Christmas commercial for, as they put it, a "well known supermarket". Now myself and The Mother have both been trying to guess which company this one could be for. At first I thought maybe it could be ASDA or... [read more]
The past couple of weeks when watching the odd few things on TV, I've noticed another advert from BT - you know the ones, the storyline type ones with those two lads and a woman. Well, in this advert the lads had a mate around watching Breaking Bad on Netflix, and says:
Lad 1: "Well we did it"
Lad 2: "Two days solid"
Lad 1: "Breaking Bad, done!"
That immediately got me gobbing off to myself (as I wasn't around other people when I first watched the advert *starts playing All By Myself*), the reason for me gobbing off... [read more]
A handy free app supplied by the United Kingdom's main weather folk, which allows us Brit's to see the up coming weather along with some precipitation overlays. Though this app does come with a banner at the bottom of the screen - which even though it's only small, it still annoys me. Here's yet another simple/piss easy way of getting rid of it.

1) Add (+) a new App and choose... [read more]
TV Catchup, like a load of apps these days is getting more pants by the minute - mainly because "broadcasters" don't want them streaming their channels ... welcome to the digital age people! Welcome.
Anyways, if you're like me and prefer to watch your non-commercial stuff (i.e; BBC) on the BBC iPlayer then you don't get bugged by adverts, however using TV Catchup to watch already commercialised broadcasts requires you to sit and watch yet another boring advert (this is obviously to help fund TV catchup), well if you don't wish to see this advert at...

Every few nights I sit and watch a few feeds from America and I'm still surprised at how annoying it is trying to watch a programme over there.
Pretty much anything and everything is sponsored. When they show the weather forecast, it's sponsored, when a programme finishes, its closed-captions (subtitles) are also sponsored. Also most of these sponsored messages and normal commercials are constantly cut-short. If that happened here in the UK, advertisers would go mental!
Talking of commercials, for the BBC channels, we don't get mid-show commercials, but other channels either have one after 5 minutes, then 25... [read more]
