Thank God, 00.  For a minute there I thought I would have to simultaneously give you a welcome- back hug and a well-aimed kick between the goal posts for having a problem with the world's best musical genre.

Shame on Yodel for sullying a thing of beauty with such dorkwad behaviour. 

Customer service sometimes requires clarity of communications.  You could voicemail them some Carly Rae Jepson calling them maybe on an endless loop. Or you could go with the classic doorstep delivery of flaming, paper-bag-encased organic material. 

Your choice, really.

Me too CSL but possibly not the best choice of hold music from Yodel when you've already called 11 times.

Aw! if only this was true it would all be forgiven, its just a damn robot voice, i don't think Yodel employ human beings.

Hey Double0, after the Alexa/google rant, l saw this and thought of you -

https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/9to5google.com/2017/11/08/review-google-and-levis-jacquard-enabled-jacket-is-a-wearable-for-those-uncompelled-by-wearables-video/amp/#ampshare=https://9to5google.com/2017/11/08/review-google-and-levis-jacquard-enabled-jacket-is-a-wearable-for-those-uncompelled-by-wearables-video/

For the times when listening to your playlist is more favourable than paying attention to the traffic around you, or that misplaced front brake assembly.

But hey, it's got some reflective strips (?)

Best quote from the promo film
"At first glance you might not notice anything special about the jacket and you'd be right Its a standard Levi's jacket"  Ouch!

I feel like Ive missed the boat in regards to the whole fitbit phenomenon, my brother in law has the apple version, he's not overweight he's an electric bike riding skinny vegan hipster, he doesn't really like activity he just seems to like technology telling him what to do, if his watch beeps he'll go do some star jumps.

This might sound like a crazy notion but i wonder if overweight peeps have ever considered an alternative to a tech based radical diet plan of just 'eating less food and exercising more often? Now if i can just figure out a way of fluffing those 7 words out to fill a 200page glossy book and accompanying 12 part TV series i'll be rich, rich i tells ya!
QVC watch out, im not afraid of spandex and leg warmers.

Some people think that downloading a fitness app to their smartphone or buying wearable tech is half the job done. If you download 2 fitness apps then surely you're twice as fit now?

This is true^

Recently our local doctors summoned all the men folk who live down our lane to go for a 'Wellman' check, blood pressure, cholesterol, heart rate you know the kind of thing. One of my neighbours Julian was told that at 13 stone he was almost 2 stone overweight and verging on obesity, he said to me "Aw! im going to have to buy a mountain bike, and join the gym"

His wallet will certainly be a bit lighter after that!

Anyone interested in this type of thing should read the excellent "Running Free" by Richard Askwith which deals with the increasing commercialisation and monetisation of the simple activity of running.
