    AfterShokz do a set that holds audio, but they’re pricy at £139ish.

    I’ve got a set of their Titanium ones and they’re okay...they’re alright but definitely feel a bit odd when you first use them and if you turn them up too much they definitely leak out.

    Have also got a mono earpod which works relatively well and is a far cheaper solution, but does give you the bouncer/secret service look... :-)

    That HawkEye non-goal for Sheffield United vs. Villa (ended 0-0) becomes very interesting now!

    Would quite like Villa to stay up, not only does it mean we won’t be competing with them for a spot back in the top flight next year but it might also stop our fans that keep using ‘look at Villa’ as vindication for woefully underspending ourselves this/any season!

    Have any clubs taken money for season tickets yet?

    First season ticket deadline at Carrow Road was 21 February this year (usually that weekend), just half a year or so before the season traditionally starts...

    I pay via monthly direct debit, but others pay up front obviously. We’re currently waiting for pro-rata refunds for this season, which are due by the end of this month.

    Spotted the Sports Ground Safety Authority’s draft guidelines for getting crowds back in...no idea how that’ll work in practice, we’re 75%ish season ticket holders too.

    What portable wireless mice do people use with their macs?

    Logitech MX Anywhere, had it for years now and got it synced with work laptop too - wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone

    Oh well, no trip to Wembley this year...hold on, you know what I mean!

    Thought the three reserves United brought on looked decent; Martial, Rashford and Pogba. Expect they’ll be starting games soon...

    Absolute garbage return to football for us...two shots on target across the two games against Southampton and Everton, and looking at the table is just depressing seeing that even one win would have got us within touching distance. So frustrating.

    Expect Villa and Bournemouth to join us in the Championship next season, purely based on the fact that we are still to play West Ham and Watford so that's 3pts extra on the board for both of them...

    Got a 2020 Macbook Air recently. Still well within the returns period. Time to look at the reviews and see if it's worth returning/exchanging.

    Exactly the same situation here...MBA i5 1.1GHz/16MB/512GB arrived last Thursday, working out if it's worth an extra £290 to get the new MBP i5 2.0GHz/16MB/512GB for similar reasons @Dammit refers to!

    Replacing a mid-2012 MBA, so either's going to be a marked improvement and both would (I'd hope) be something I end up with a similar lifespan for so thinking the cost will be spread over seven or eight years. Hmm, got a week and a bit to decide...

    Yes...always worth going through the cancellation process and choose 'can't afford it' as the reason. There's a few hoops they put in front of you...'Are you sure? You will miss these things', then 'We can offer you £offer' if you say you are sure, then 'We can offer you £betterOffer' if you say you're sure again.

    Best we got was four months of movies for free, but Entertainment was frequently four to six months at £3.99. It's not as hassle-free as the deals they throw up around Black Friday (a year of Movies/Entertainment for £99 etc), but it's not much effort really.

    Ordered the Logitech K380 Bluetooth keyboard a week or so before I started WFH, having seen it was Wirecutter's choice.

    Can be paired with three devices, it's similar in size to the older Apple Magic Keyboard and comes in at around forty quid. Would recommend if you did choose to go wireless.
