Re: Hua hin post office location?

ok, thanks, and you can send EMS at any of the post offices, even the one in Market village? Last time I went there (this was a couple of years ago, things of course may have changed) as well as the additional 70bt service fee for sending EMS, there was a sign saying that all EMS parcels needed to ...

Re: Best "free" film/TV streaming sites?

To watch the BBC shows you need a TV license, how about adding another million or two viewers paying a small monthly fee so non-resident/non-citizen people can watch also? Maybe they offer that already, but I've never come across it. they make money selling rights to their channels and content to i...

Re: The computer and software security thread

That looks like a cloud sync service, in the same vein as DropBox or OneDrive. These are fantastic services but they are not backup services as they sync everything from your computer. If the files get encrypted by ransomware on your computer, the encrypted files are also uploaded to the host.

Re: ThaiExpatTV,ExPatPremiumTV & 365Sport Problems

Why can somebody like Sky, provide the services legally? Because they don't have the rights to provide the coverage in Thailand. Fox Sports do. Why can't Fox Sport (Thailand) provide the service? Because they sub-let the coverage to True (and CTH? What happened to them...?). Why can't True provide ...

Re: Smartphone App for Hua Hin Immigration

"Knowing how long they have to wait will help people make the most of their day without needing to sit idly in the office, officials said." First up, if the staff were to get to work on time in place of wandering in around 09-15 am, and then chatting to their mates before doing anything constructiv...

Re: Wanting Android Tablet

(try finding a model with both dual-sim and a separate SD slot and big battery these days....) Samsung J7 2016 (yes, the year is part of the name) J7 2016. Had one of those. Unfortunately it fell into the Themes on a visit to England last year. I don't call a 3xxx milliamp battery 'big' but it's be...

Re: Wanting Android Tablet

Get rid of that Doggee right now - or at the very least check your running processes for suspicious items like com.android.snap and whatever else they install to 'call home' and then pop up adware after the first few months of usage. My last Doggee, and last ChinaPhone full stop, was loaded with suc...

Re: IlikeHDtv

I previously used it on a Minix and it was no better or worse than any other I've used since. I also get fairly constant drop-outs and buffering.

Re: Wanting Android Tablet

My ASUS Android device doesn't have or do as described above. Along with the wife's, both tablets, mine Google's Nexus7 by ASUS, hers an ASUS tablet. Both excellent tablets, and as I stated, passed the test of time. To be fair my ASUS device is a phone, not a tablet, so maybe they have a different ...

Any good reports on using a set top box for ILikeHDtv

Have used on for Expat TV and find it great.
Do you still have the ExpatTV one? You should be able to just go ahead and install iLikeHD on it.

Re: Wanting Android Tablet

Are you saying that Asus and Lenovo are pre-loading malware? No I'm talking about the generic Chinese manufacturers such as Blueboo, Cubot and any of the other 1000 names they go by. Asus just pre-load a horrific interpretation of the Android OS that doesn't stopp bugging you and telling you all ab...

Re: Wanting Android Tablet

There's malware that you get tricked into installing which you may end up installing on a Samsung device, and there's malware that comes pre-loaded by Chinese firms, which is something totally different.

Re: Wanting Android Tablet

I'd be careful buying a generic Chinese-branded tablet or phone these days. A lot of the manufacturers are putting spy-ware into the built-in roms, and some even start popping up adverts after a few months of use. Said devices are usually unrootable, to prevent you getting around these issues.

Re: ATM charges at AEON, Bluport

I used the AEON cash machine in Market Village recently and can confirm that is was also "only" a 150bt charge there, too.
