This is excellent - I love flip phones. They feel protective of the main phone screen and number pad. They are also small and portable, lightweight and cute to look at! It's easy to get into the texting with practise using the proper keys, especially with predictive text - I remember on my old Motorola!

Crazy. It's not hard to protect data. It almost feels like these companies don't care about their users.

Is iPhone or Android easier to unlock - or are they both the same?
I have found various companies, including iphone approved unlock, official sim unlock and official imei phone unlock. All look about the same except the first one specializes in iPhones. But does this even matter? The last one has the same design as the first so is this the same company or is it standard?
I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and iPhone 7. Both excellent phones by the way :-)
Would like both unlocking but don't know where to go as stores want to charge too much..

Self-driving cars are the future - it's crazy that we all drive around in our own tin cans! Accidents just waiting to happen. In 100 or so years it will look mental that we each had our own little car, and they could all reach much higher speeds than was safe or necessary. So dangerous. Can't wait for full automation, all cars perfectly sensing where others are on the road, slowing down and speeding up in synch with each other, leaving the perfect amount of space between each vehicle, avoiding stopping and starting all the time, tail-backs, hold-ups, traffic queues, bumps, scrapes, parking disasters, etc. Everyone nice and slow in total control. Will be life transforming for elderly people, disabled people, people who can't drive/ don't want to drive, people after a few drinks etc.
