Just a quick note Ted to say how much I'm enjoying your Tech Addicts podcasts with the Irish fella :-) 2+ hours is perfectly fine with me. Thanks.
Matt Jones on Raleigh Vektar
Another great walk down memory lane. Thanks! I was recently reminded of the Vektar when the owner of my local childhood bike shop passed away and this old photo was shared. If you look in the window on the right you can see a shiny new Vektar, along with promotional graphics. I remember this vividly as I spent many an hour with my nose pressed up against the window lusting after it! 13 year olds like me had just been introduced to an 8-bit Trans Am (Knight Rider), Motorcycles (Street Hawk) and Helicopters (Airwolf) so when they told us about a computerised bike, we didn’t think they meant a cheap radio and a siren! We were young and naive enough to think we were getting AI and self driving ability! As soon as we learned it couldn’t talk, and you still had to pedal it we soon lost interest, and I think the spoilt brats that got them for Christmas were all gravely disappointed!

Jeremy Harpham on the Sony Neckband SRS-NB10 bluetooth headset I was getting ear troubles with continued use of in-ear or over ear headphones on too many Teams/Zoom calls. Like many, my working world has reversed since the pandemic. Instead of 80% office I'm now 80% home. This headset would not make sense in an office environment. Comfort - Superb. All day wearable to an extent that you don't notice it. Sound quality - fabulous for listening to voice calls, podcasts, casual radio listening. Don't bother if for music. Call clarity is excellent. Does pick up louder background noise. Battery life is a full 5 days working-week (so 40 hours?). And USB-C charging too with quick top-up. Couple of hours for a full charge. Build quality is typical Sony, so great. Bluetooth never drops. Multipoint to 2 devices. Exceeded my expectations and is definitely now my main device for work calls. Excellent value for money.
