Oranges 2.0

Lately I’ve been trying to eat my recommended daily intake of fruit and veg. So I’ve been laying into the tasty oranges that Waitrose has to offer. It’s nice to get some decent, fresh fruit for once after living in London. I’ve not eaten many oranges since I was a kid, and I’m finding them … Continue reading “Oranges 2.0”

Lately I’ve been trying to eat my recommended daily intake of fruit and veg. So I’ve been laying into the tasty oranges that Waitrose has to offer. It’s nice to get some decent, fresh fruit for once after living in London. I’ve not eaten many oranges since I was a kid, and I’m finding them really enjoyable.

What I want to know is… has there been a change in their design? They’ve got a skin, that’s fine, no change there. Then there’s the segments, I’m largely familiar with these too. My beef is about the strange mini-segments which exist at the top. I’ll have to take a picture to show you what I mean. I’m not sure I remember them from the younger orange eating career. Where have the come from? Does anyone know? Anyone?

iPods are shite

I bought him a little jumper, but it wasn’t enough. My third iPod has failed, with the same problem – HDD failure. So I’ve declared all iPods as absolute shite! I find it very hard to say. I have loved my iPod. Especially this one, as it’s lasted the longest (about 10 months). But I’ve spoken to Apple and it turns out that when they replace iPod #1 with the any-old-crap they dish out. Your warranty only covers you for a 90 day period. This was fine for iPod #2 because it broke within 2 months and it was still under the original 12 month warranty. But now, this poor little bugger has gasped it’s last digital breaths and kicked up it’s heals outside of the safe haven of warranty.

It is a shame, iPod #3 and I had some good times. They’re certainly the smallest, easiest to use and the best looking MP3 player available. I was going to also buy an Apple iBook G4 in the near future, but now I’ll have to reconsider any more investment in this company.

Apple have said that I could send it back for repair at a cost of £160. But I think I’ll just smash it up with a hammer.
