Re: Touch screen phones

To be honest I still have a Blackberry because I like my little keyboard! I'm fine on a touch screen like an ipad (although I prefer a lap top with a proper keyboard) but on an i-phone/smartphone it is too small and I type every word wrong and this annoys me! Bring back manual typewriters, that's w...

Re: Is Anyone Sensitive To Noise or Odors?

Can´t stand loud noises or perfume. Noise-canceling headphones are a godsend for me.

Re: Keyboard on smartphone

I use swype on my smartphones. It allows me to be far less accurate. Alternatively you can get the new Blackberry KeyOne for 300€ now with physical keyboard :D (I still love my Blackberrys)

Re: Vestibular System

I thought I should update this post. I went back for the tests and was told my right side system was 57% worse than my left, but that it is considered normal up to 80-90%. Dr said everything is fine with my inner ear. After the tests, I still failed the stepping test. He said it is likely a physical...

Re: Connecting

I do find I'm not really into small talk, gossip or celeb-based tittle tattle. Bane of my life. I hate small talk. The other day someone from work was asking how my Christmas break was etc and what I got up to etc. What he really wanted to ask me is if I knew something about a particular system. (w...

Re: Tippy Toe Walking?

I looked it up on youtube just to see why firemonkey thought he would lose his balance. Found a video of a woman who I think was doing it on purpose, but this isn´t really toe walking. Whilst looking I did come across this video which might have some tips (I´m at work so couldn´t have sound on): htt...

Re: Touch screen phones

I sometimes have difficulty keeping it in my hands, but swiping and gestures are generally not a problem, which is a good job as I have the iPhone X and it´s all gestures and swipes now!

Re: Tippy Toe Walking?

I used to do it as a kid up until about the age of 12 when people started taking the **** out of me at school. After that, I tried to learn not to do it, but even today my gait/stance is not really 100%

Re: Not always understanding things straight away?

If you´re writing a long post, compose it in Notepad or another text editor, then you can copy/paste into the forum and avoid any timeout problems.

Re: Another cup bites the dust...

yes! I found the mighty mug on amazon.de :D I shall order one immediately :D I tend to always keep drinks away from my electronics, even though both of my mobile phones are waterproof. One of the stipulations after dropping my iPhone 6s+ in the loo was that all new phones must be waterproof! I would...

Another cup bites the dust...

I find that when preparing cups for drinks I will move away but my hand stays, or a stray finger catches the handle and usually ends in disaster. Sometimes they just wobble on the surface and I get lucky. Anyone else here have this problem? Has anyone found a decent solution? I´m currently looking o...
