    Indeed, however...

    Prices in any kind of chain store are set by head office- new labels are downloaded & printed every day, applied digitally to the tills & stock system and the paper labels put out on the shelves by some poor sod or sods- if there were a computer error ( erroneous price ) then it would affect all WHSmith stores, not just the ones that were attached to Hospitals ( didn't know that was a thing.. ). Been a long time since I played with an EPoS system like that though so it might be possible, but I'm more inclined to believe they were simply price-gouging a more or less captive audience and someone noticed, hence.

    Gah! The number of sites I've seen phrasing it exactly like Hexus has, there, is mind-boggling. It is a proposal, and one which will never go any further; to phrase it like it's actually going to happen is bad journalism at best and outright lying at worst.

    There's a reason you haven't seen a story about it on Bit-Tech, and it ain't because I didn't see the proposal...

    That must've been some tricky decision... whether to dismiss it as bovine or equine excrement...

    Nah, that's just a smokescreen to cover up the fact he's neck deep the mindless Yanny/Laurel debate. :p

    BTW, it's Laurel. Don't argue, because it just ****ing is, alright?!

    I wish I hadn't google'd that:waah:

    Don't people remember the time before you could look up song lyrics in seconds and it was common knowledge that everyone constantly heard different things in recorded voice?

    Oh damn, now I feel old:sad:

    We uses to do it with inhalers and I did it enough to get a blister. Kids today are no more wreckless or stupid, it's just harder to hide all the dumb **** when all your friends film it and slap it all over the Internet.

    It sounds to me like 'yearly' to me, so neither.

    On another hot topic, this happened on my phone yesterday

    It came to my notice today that there is, on Linkedin, a profile for an American called Charles W*nk.

    I was bored...
