Have to start off with – I AM LOVING THE NEW NOKIA !!!!
Let me remind you – all the specs of a Samsung or iPhone, dual sim, expandable memory, two cameras blah blah blah – machined from a single billet of aluminium so going to be tough as hell but here is the clincher……….since last saturday, that is now 6 nights ago, I have only charged it twice. I shit you not, two charges in a week. A smart phone that only needs charging twice in a week – that has to be something special. OK, so I am not a person that uses my phone heavily but I have used it for GPS tracking, text, calls and even for a while in the week, I used it as a wireless router so that I could play Xbox live!!
Still not convinced? well, it has that famous Nokia ring tone but the real show stopper – ⅓ the price of an iPhone or Samsung equivalent. So when that Gorilla glass on your Samsung breaks when a fly lands on it, or your kids drop your iPhone and the glass breaks and you are faced with a £200 repair bill (and a weeks wait while it is repaired if you choose Samsung), think about the Nokia. Break the screen on this little beauty and its cheap enough to go and buy a new one. Forget £80 a year to insure your phone against damage that is should realistically be able to withstand – GO NOKIA !!
I chose the uber sexy black and copper for my 6.1 plus and it looks slick, feels robust and runs sweetly on Android One.
A big thumbs up to the Fins !
There – done.
Now lets talk V8, more specifically V8 supercharged, and most precisely V8 Supercharged – shaped like a brick.
I left Bedworth last Friday afternoon heading for Falmouth at around 16:00. I tapped the post code into my SatNav and the route came up, something like 280 miles. Very shortly after that, the message appeared, ‘not enough fuel for journey’. Funny huh – my tank was full but the beast wanted to use it all. I did manage to coax it along though and arrived in Falmouth with 20 miles of spare fuel.
Next Morning I headed to Redruth. I thought ah, Tesco will have the cheapest fuel around here. I was wrong. They were 5p a litre more expensive than a local stop in Falmouth that I drove past to get there. I splashed £12 in quickly as I was off the bottom of the gauge, and that splash never even registered, still showing nada after a £12 tipple. I drove back to Falmouth and filled the little beauty up.
So now I sit in Falmouth Harbour all alone on a boat. The crew are all taking time off and I am enjoying relaxing and playing Xbox on my lonesome (yep , I brought my Xbox and TV with me). Its blowing a hoolie but I am relaxed – I mean, what could I do if it went tits up? I am all alone and being blown onto the dock. Safe as houses !!
Still looking for my new job – harder than I was expecting it to be with my newly upgraded licence.

You gotta take me for a drive in that supercharged V8 brick of yours, it’s my favourite big car on the road.
