Trump’s Truth Disaster

Chad Dixon

Another entertaining and informative show gentleman. Some feedback for Gareth regarding my mobile gaming experiences. I had a ZX Spectrum back in the early 80's and loved playing those cassette-loaded games. However I never was a fan of pc or console gaming and hence never used independent joysticks. My first foray into gaming on-the-go was when I got a PSP. I think SSX on Tour Snowboarding was my favourite as it had a brilliant soundtrack. Since then I've done all my gaming exclusively on smartphones because I always have one with me and the recent models’ processors can handle the intense graphics. I have been known to be playing Call of Duty Mobile for three hours straight on my Samsung Galaxy S20FE and not suffer any RSI.

Matthew Jones on the Yamaha Organ

Very enjoyable show. The Yamaha organ part was a nice trip down memory lane too and it's amazing how far that particular tech has come. Despite not being able to play properly, I had Keyboards, Drum machines, an Atari 1040ste and lots of midi cables in my failed attempts of Bedroom music production! I'd guess about £1,500 of kit, and this was considered not even entry level, probably more like "toy" level. Fast forward to 2022, and a £50 (used) iPhone 6S and Garageband can do a way better job than all my old kit did! Look on YouTube at a channel called iSongs. It blew my mind and shows quite how powerful this tech has become. (I recommend Sweet Home Alabama 😉)

Phil Hendy on FPS and Pixel 6/6 Pro

April Google Security update arrived. Looking for any improvement to FPS. Logged in successfully 100% of 20 attempts, that's with me using 4 imprints and my wife just 1 on her unit. You need to be patient and to not move your finger. Also when you lift-screen-to-wake if AOD is not enabled, you need to allow time for the target area to appear. When my 6 Pro arrived last October I simply could not get my right thumb print to read better than 50% of the time. It’ll never be as lightning quick as capacitive - but no in-screen FPS is. Fingers do need to be clean and dry.
