Barclays App: probably the most annoying pop-up for my business

I use the Barclays app for my business banking account, however recently Barclays decided to ‘upgrade’ the app(!) They decided to implement a ridiculous pop-up informing me that bank transfers could be requested from scammers. Many thanks Barclays, that is incredibly helpful. I’m assuming the reason they did this was to ensure they don’t have… Continue reading Barclays App: probably the most annoying pop-up for my business

After some recent guests damaged a few things around our house, we expected instant payout for the items damaged.

The site still says the claim is ‘under review’ – see pic – and there doesn’t… Continue reading When Airbnb take a loooong time to review and reimburse damage

Does the only Huawei 5G router work with a Poynting antenna?

No it doesn’t. When tested, the Huawei CPE PRO 5G router (the only full-size 5G router currently available) together with a Poynting 4G-XPOL-A0002 Antenna simply decreased my 4G speeds by 95%.

Note that there’s no 5G signal out… Continue reading Does the only Huawei 5G router work with a Poynting antenna?
