As if by magic, mere hours after I mentioned it right here on tbni.blog the official announcement has come…
The Classic SNES is coming on 29th September 2017 and will be priced at $79.99 / £79.99 (although Smyths Toys currently have preorders listed at £69.99.)
You are going to have to be quick though Amazon have stopped preorders, ShopTo have it marked as ‘Sold Out’ and Game is just crashing. This is going to be another Mini NES scenario and the popularity of it is fuelling this SNES even more! eBay already has listings for £180 and eBay.com has preorders listed at $299! Keep an eye on places like Tesco, Asda etc who will probably start their preorders over the next day or so so in the quick so you won’t have to rely on eBay and Gumtree scalpels!
Preorders have already started for the new iPad Pro, and lead times for some combinations are already touching 10 days for dispatch – but when can you go into an actual store, have a look at the new devices and walk out (hopefully) with one?
That is a much harder question to find the answer to, no where seems to have that date in black and white.
Well I do.
It is today – Tuesday 13th June 2017.
So get yourself down to the Apple Store and have a go. (Pickup at this moment 00:00 hrs is not currently available).
The reviews have already started coming in and they are very positive, however one thing shines through in every review I have seen… iOS11 is when we will truly know the true potential for the new iPad Pro and it won’t be with us until the Autumn (Fall for all you guys and girls stateside).
The Colt by Breitling expresses its youthful, dynamic and winning spirit in a brand-new model dedicated to thrill-seekers, with an avant-garde case in Breitlight® and an ultra-technical black look. Code name: Skyracer, like that of the plane flying under Breitling colors in the fabulous Red Bull Air Race.
On January 27 & 28th 2017 the ArenaCross UK Tour graced Belfast’s Odyssey Arena for two rounds of the UK Competition. With everyone from 7 year old kids to Europe’s finest indoor Motorcross Racers and a ridiculously skilled Freestyle Team this really is a high octane, completely flat out show from start to finish – and it’s a format that works and this is its fifth year on the bounce in Belfast – and my second.
Anyone who knows the One Plan knows that it was an amazing deal offered by Three that basically meant you gave them £15 hard earned pound coins and they gave you unlimited calls, texts and data, truly unlimited that even allowed tethering.
If you didn’t know about it, unlucky, you missed out.
One problem though, as with everything good it was abused. People cancelled their broadband and such, streaming and downloading TBs of data every month. Of course this then made such a plan unsustainable and caused Three to bin it. I understand that. It is what happens next that I do not understand.
I would like to thank the ASA for conducting a thorough and fair investigation and ultimately making the right finding, although I am not overly confident in Sony’s / Games version of events. I welcome any comment from them!
I tried throughout numerous times to speak to them and never once was given the courtesy of an answer, and as a gamer for about 25 years I feel that they treated me and every other gamer like me unfairly and didn’t have the ‘balls’ to apologise to us for it. Shame on you both for this, and shame on you both for failing to recognise it.
Having recently purchased a TomTom Rider V5 as my sat nav solution for my motorbike I became very aware that whilst browsing for the product it was hard enough to find out exactly what came in the box. To level the playing field a little I have made the following Unboxing Gallery. And just to be sure, to be sure, that any perspective buyer is completely aware of what comes in the box the contents are as follows :
TomTom Rider (V5) Sat Nav
Ram Mounting Kit (Non locking) for Mounting on bars (includes rubber to protect bars)
EU & UK Plug Options (For Wall Charging)
TomTom Rider Charging Dock & Mount (For on bike charging)
TomTom Rider Mounting Base Plate (&mounting screws, washers and bolts)
TomTom Wall Charger
TomTom Rider Wairing Kit for Hard Wiring to the Battery (see my next posting for how to hardwire to the CanBus system on a BMW Motorcycle)
USB Lead (For Syncing, Map Updating and Charging)
At this stage I have had no real use of the satnav but when I do I will update with any thoughts and a short review. As I have already stated I will be commencing some Motorcycle VLogging Soon, so I may well cover the sat nav on one such journey.
One point I feel I must raise at this stage is that with the supplied mounting kit the use of a locking kit (approx £55) is a must unless you are very disciplined in removing the sat nav each and every time you are getting off the bike. With the system supplied with the device it could be taken off your bike within 5 seconds with no trouble. It could easily be gone during a quick stop at the ATM or whilst paying for fuel. There are many other mounting systems available that will give a little more security for a quick stop but be prepared to take your kit with you for any stop that is going to be more than a few minutes or when the bike is out of eyeshot. These devices are so expensive and so appealing to scumbag thieves that you have to be aware they are vulnerable and should never be left unattended.
Although this blog is now officially closed it is still getting a huge volume of hits and traffic so I have shared this here also…

If you follow my twitter feed or Sony / Playstation or Game UK you will no doubt have seen the fury spread across the internet of foul play, cheating, link sharing and as Sony as so very prone too, hacking! #4thePlayers #notfortheplayers #forthecheats
On 15-19 December 2014 Playstation UK and Game UK ran a competition that meant the first 100 correct entries to this competition got a opportunity to purchase – at full price (£399) – a 20th Anniversary Edition of the console. One of only 13,500 globally, so a very rare item indeed. Well at least that was their plan until link sharing, web site crashing, cheating and hacking took over and left the genuine gamer with no chance whatsoever of bagging one of these much sought after machines.
Allegations flew but facts remain, users (cheaters) ended up with multiple consoles…
You will see from the screen grabs above that this user even claims to be a genuine gamer, but is so very kindly prepared to accepted £3000 for a console (but yet they mean so much to him and he is so blessed) yet towards the end of his posting he is getting rather abusive and showing his true colours!
