To all our users and visitors – have a very Merry Christmas 2020 – enjoy this ‘Locked Down’ Christmas as much as you can, hopefully it will be a ‘one off’, and just a Chapter in the history books!
Apple iPhone Asking for Outlook Password?
(For reference I am using an iPhone 12 Pro Max running the latest release of iOS14.)
Mine was, daily, sometimes more than once, and no matter how many times I went into settings and entered the passwords it would mess up and start doing the same thing all over again. Given the fact that I have multiple Outlook accounts this was a complete faff, time consuming and annoying.
There is an Outlook App which works pretty well, however I have multiple email accounts on multiple services including the email for this domain and I use Apple Mail on my Desktop and Laptop Machines so without the iOS Mail App it meant the real potential of using different apps for different accounts on both my mobile devices and computers.
I am sure it is something similar for you, hence why you are here.
But after scouring the internet and reading posts I may have just discovered a solution that works. And it seems I am not alone in this phenomenon – over 2500 people (at the time of posting) have stated they are suffering from the same issue on the Official Apple Support Forums.
I found a solution, and it doesn’t require deleting accounts from the iOS Mail app, Settings nor reinstalling the native app – all which also apparently work – but if you have multiple accounts that is an awful lot of hassle…
Gymkhana 2020: Travis Pastrana Takeover; Ultimate Hometown Shred in an 862hp Subaru STI :
More than a decade-long rivalry between friends and rally drivers Travis Pastrana and Ken Block has culminated in a passing of the torch. Travis Pastrana is trying his hand at his own Gymkhana film, shot and edited by the same crew that makes all the Gymkhana films: Hoonigan Media Machine. Who’s the real winner here? You!
On a personal note I am a huge Ken Block fan, and love the Gymkhana videos. For me, as an ex-Subaru Impreza WRX STI Prodrive owner I was always a little biased towards the Subaru videos so was thrilled to see the Subaru back as the feature car.
I wasn’t too sure about Travis Pastrana being the featured driver, no disrespect intended, the guy is clearly a ridiculously skilful pilot, but, I am just a big Ken Block fan. However after about 12 seconds of watching this video my fears were quelled. Let’s just say it as it is… ‘WOWZERS!’
Pastrana nails Gymkhana 2020, is outstanding, so fair play to everyone involved in making this video, the talent in everything from the driving to the editing is just epic, and the Gorilla on the Segway is pretty skilful too!
Before you start, relax, turn up the resolution as high as your screen will let you, go full screen and if you have some decent headphones but them on and turn them up your mind is about to be blown!
Gymkhana 2020 is definitely something good to have come out of 2020!
PS – There is an extended edit coming in 2021!
Mous Limitless 3.0 :
I have been using Mous cases now for three years, and still they are the only cases I will put my phones in.
From 2017 I have been using the Mous brand and still it is the product that I recommend every single time some one says to me, ‘What case should I get for my new phone?’
See my previous Mous Product Posts here : https://tbni.blog/?s=Mous
This year on receipt of my iPhone 12 Pro Max I was already well prepared, my preorder for my Mous Limitless 3.0 Case had been placed even before my iPhone had been ordered.
For 2020 I opted initially for a Walnut Limitiless 3.0 and quickly followed it up with a leather variant.
TT 2021 Cancelled :
The speculation of will or won’t the TT 2021 run has now been answered.
The Isle of Man Government announced today that the next time the TT Races will run will be in 2022.
Press Release :
The Isle of Man Government today confirmed the cancellation of the 2022 TT Races. The next TT Races will bow take place in 2022, from Saturday 28th May to Saturday 11th June.
Laurence Skelly, MHK, Minister, Department for Enterprise, Isle of Man Government, said:
‘We do not underestimate the disappointment that this decision will cause to many people. However, we are making an early and logical decision to provide certainty and clarity to race fans and everyone else involved in our event. The TT relies on thousands of volunteers and officials across a wide range of organisations and we could not move responsibly towards operating to that date and commit to welcoming tens of thousands of people to the Island in June, despite the progress towards a vaccination programme globally and on the Island.’
‘We evaluated all possible options including moving the TT to a date later in the year but there are complexities and risks, including scaling up of certain infrastructure and critical delivery elements of the TT, as well as existing resident and visitor travel in late August, which would cause further disruption to thousands of people.’
‘We remain hopeful that the Classic TT and Manx Grand Prix can take place later in the year and we look forward to welcoming visitors to our Island again.’
Paul Phillips, TT Business Development Manager, Isle of Man Government Department for Enterprise added:

Motorcycle Live 2020 :
Motorcycle Live for 2020 has went virtual!
Due to the ongoing global Covid-19 Pandemic, like so many events Motorcycle Live at the Birmingham NEC has had to be postponed until 2021.
However – a 2020 Show will go on, but for this year it will be online!
Running from 21 – 29 November 2020 at https://www.motorcyclelive.co.uk you will be able to browse 51 microsites from manufacturers and dozens more from exhibitors.
Obviously it won’t be the same as a walking round the huge arena with a camera and notepad to make a shortlist of what you may buy next nor be able to go home with your new helmet or latest selection of gear for the winter or even next Season but you can still sit down with a cup of coffee and spend some time perfecting your wish list!
If you would like to look back at how Motorcycle Live looked in 2019 before ‘The Rona’ we have a concise gallery available here for you viewing pleasure : https://tbni.blog/2019/11/22/motorcycle-live-2019-gallery/

The Coach Banbridge :
In a press release on Wednesday 4th November 2020 Northern Ireland’s oldest nightclub announced that it was closing its doors, permanently.
Citing the Covid-19 pandemic and no foreseeable opening date for the nightclub industry the iconic Northern Irish Club announced that it was closing for good.
I’m far too old for the Coach now but in my younger days I spend many, many Wednesday and Saturday nights in that night club. I have already used the word ‘iconic’ and that is what it was, unfortunately now it will ‘legendary’ – the stuff of stories and legend.
Deep down I wish that some miracle happens and when the world gets itself back to normal so too does the Coach, not for me, but for the generations that now won’t get to experience it.
Thank you to everyone who works, runs, worked, ran and went to the coach especially those of us who were there in the decade of 1996 – 2006, we nailed it!
Banbridge has lost something very special.
If it remains live (hopefully it will) you can find the Coach’s Facebook Page here :
