The UK’s cheapest fibre broadband deal is finally coming to an end tomorrow

February was a brilliant month for broadband deals and March only continued to pump out the top-notch offers. And yet, throughout that whole time, nothing has managed to beat TalkTalk’s brilliant fibre broadband bargain. 

Dropping the cheapest fibre broadband deal in the UK almost a month ago, TalkTalk has finally decided to bring the offer to an end tomorrow, giving the other ISPs out there a fighting chance when it comes to affordable internet.

As sad as we are to see it go, it’s not all bad news, there is still one more day to grab this offering. With monthly bills of £19.95, no upfront costs and some pretty fast average speeds of 36Mb, this is easily the best value fibre broadband deal out there.

FAA Grounds Boeing’s 737 MAX Jet Days After Ethiopia Crash

The Federal Aviation Administration has grounded Boeing’s 737 MAX airplanes, banning airlines from operating the jets in US airspace, effective immediately. The grounding comes three days after an Ethiopia Airlines 737 MAX 8 crashed shortly after takeoff, killing all 181 passengers and crew aboard, and after many countries had grounded the planes. In a statement, the FAA says it “made this decision as a result of the data gathering process and new evidence collected at the site and analyzed today. This evidence, together with newly refined satellite data available to FAA this morning, led to this decision.” This story, originally published Tuesday, March 12, explains how the FAA decides when to stop airplanes from flying.

Boeing requests FAA ground the 737 as the President pushes an emergency order

After consulting with the Federal Aviation Administration, the National Transportation Safety Board, and airlines, Boeing is throwing its support behind a decision to ground its 737 Max planes.

“Boeing has determined — out of an abundance of caution and in order to reassure the flying public of the aircraft’s safety — to recommend to the FAA the temporary suspension of operations of the entire global fleet of 371 737 MAX aircraft,” the company said in a statement.

Boeing’s statement comes amid mounting pressure for the FAA to ground Boeing’s planes and belies the company’s reported efforts behind the scenes to keep its planes aloft — at least in the United States.

The company’s chief executive, Dennis A. Muilenburg, reportedly called from Chicago to assure President Trump about the safety of the planes, which have been involved in crashes on flights operated by Nigerian and Indonesian airline carriers, according to a report in The New York Times

Tomba del Cimitero Monumentale «venduta» per 900 mila euro

Quanto sareste disposti a spendere pur di far riposare le vostre spoglie mortali nel Cimitero Monumentale di Milano, non lontano da personaggi del calibro di Alessandro Manzoni e Carlo Cattaneo? Una facoltosa famiglia milanese quasi un milione di euro, 900 mila per la precisione. Tanto è costato aggiudicarsi la concessione dell’edicola Moretti, realizzata nel 1915 dall’architetto Giuseppe Sommaruga, stando ai dati usciti dalla Commissione relativa al Bilancio di previsione 2019 del settore Innovazione, Trasparenza Agenda digitale e Stato civile. Una cifra record, ha sottolineato Andrea Zuccotti, direttore dei Servizi civici di Palazzo Marino. «La concessione di una tomba come questa — ha spiegato il dirigente comunale —, avviene ogni 10 anni. È un processo che richiede anni perché serve reperire prima i titolari della concessione e capire se sono interessati a portarla avanti o a farla decadere. In questo caso, la tomba va sul mercato e si crea una [...]  read more

Samsung Galaxy Buds review: A waste of good design

After pairing is complete, the Galaxy Wearable app is where most of the magic happens. You can expect to install an update to the app itself right off the bat, which should take about 5-10 minutes. From there, the software walks you through the on-board controls, explaining what various taps will do. After that guide, I had to install a firmware update for the Galaxy Buds themselves — a process which took another 3-5 minutes.

These updates weren’t that frustrating, but it does take up some extra time; it’s annoying when you just want to get the music going. Having to install an update to wireless headphones right out of the box is required from time to time, but it’s pretty rare. And I test a lot of headphones.

The Galaxy Wearable app is where you’ll find battery levels, EQ presets, the option to customize the press-and-hold function and a Find My Earbuds tool. As far as EQ tweaks go, there’s only a handful of options: Bass Boost, Soft, Dynamic (default), [...]  read more
