    Mr.Meerkat got a reaction from paddy-stone in Do you/can you drive a manual?   
    Me cahh has a manual. Here in the UK, at the moment, it is about a 60:40 split of manual-to-slushmatics but not too long ago, the ratio was more like 80:20. Since maybe 2014 or 2015, the number of autos sold increased drastically.

    I found that interesting so tried to look a bit further. Found link below which says in 2017 40% of new cars sold in UK were automatic. Factoring in the large number of older vehicles still on the road, the number in the wild is probably much lower, although increasing.

    Personally I've only owned manual cars. The only time I've driven automatics (in UK or US) were rental vehicles. I do like their ease of driving, especially in stop-start traffic. Don't know if it is still a thing, historically they're less fuel efficient and cost more to buy up front, like for like, compared to a manual. That could be a factor also. Then again, with electric cars, there is no need for one. Wonder how much that figures into the numbers.
     
    I was a bit surprised when I was sent to California on a work trip last year, how many did have manual shift. One was less surprising when I found out he was a proper petrolhead and could identify any car if you so much as showed him a part of a light cluster.

    Went out today to buy a nice budget Orient Mako 3 automatic watch to add to my collect....I find that for a relatively budget price, the watch looks to be well built, and comes with sapphire crystal which is a 'must have' for a guy who's not so careful with his watch.

     
    While I was at the shop, I got to talking about Ball and the owner directed me to a Ball Bicentennial that I really like to, plus there was a promo going on and it was 20% off, it's a limited to 200 piece edition so I went for it as well....

     
    I'm going on a forced self imposed diet of instant noodles/cheap take outs for the next few months, but these puppies are worth it!

    Benefit lf not being a drinker is, during the rare time I eat at a restaurant, my bill tends to be the lowest by nearly half if not more (if I'm really in Cheapskate mode). People tend not to mind paying for me at times since I add so little to the total bill. ?

    Mr.Meerkat reacted to Commodus in What do you think Apple should do to be better and still set itself apart from competitors?   
    USB-C would be nice, but I don't think Apple has been in as much of a rush to switch over as rivals.  Lightning was appealing precisely because it solved many of the key problems years before USB-C arrived (it's bi-directional, compact and the like).  USB-C is faster, but it's actually larger -- Apple will have to account for that in any design.
     
    Also, I'd add that fast charging requires some caution.  Yeah, it's great that your OnePlus phone has a 30W charger that provides a full charge in an hour, but how is that affecting the battery's lifespan?  And what happens if you need another charger?  It feels like there's been a rush for ever-faster charging without thinking about the long-term effects, or about maintaining a true fast charging standard that's relevant across phones and platforms.
