    I went down to the Yongsan computer market by the river in Seoul when I was there and it seemed to have the cheapest prices for tech that I had seen anywhere.

    ^ I'm going to that very place on Saturday - Loops. I've never been before, so I hope you're right.

    But, looking online at the stores, Japanese stuff was very expensive; I will checksee...

    ^prices were about 30% lower than aussie e-bay prices when I was there. The aussie dollar was worth about 25% more back then mind.

    I actually built a 1/72 Sunderland when I was a kid. Just for giggles and my paintbrush skillz were very amateur at age 12. I have been watching builds on youtube since I started my museum last week and I feel like I would like to have another crack!

    I wanna get a Sony Xperia Z4 tablet (no, I'm not gonna get anything else, and yes I know it's about to be outdated by a new tablet...), but they are bloody expensive here, and I'm not sure I wanna risk one off of ebay - any idea how much in Bangkok and where the missus can get one? She's coming over here Saturday week, so I might ask her to pick one up in Bangkok and bring it with her.
    Ill check Jmart for ya tomorrow, huge sale on at the Mo.

    Things have changed, Loops... I went today, and as per all shopping in Korea it's expensive and shite. Every shop/stall has the same Samsung tablets and iPads at 25-50% above prices elsewhere in the world. No Sony tablets at all. No Asus. No HTC. No Pixel C. Sweet FA other than millions of Samsung shite and iShite which I can buy in England, Bangkok, or anywhere on ebay/amazon, have it shipped here, pay 20% import tax and still save money...
    How do I post these pictures???

    Maybe the Koreans realise the Sony Xperia phones and tablets are just a succession of shite in that Sony brand following on from Sony Ericsson, Sony Memory stick, Sony Walkman, Atrac, Sony Minidisc, digital audio tape and last but by no means least..........fukkin Betamax

    ^ I owned all of them, and they were fukin great!

    Not only has Sony stopped making laptops, but there's also a rumour going around that they won't be making ony more tablets, and stopped production of the Z4 tablet last March... Other places suggest that a new tablet is due anytime now, but should I wait or pick up one of the last remaining Xperia Z4s?

    BTW, I did have a couple of arguments with Koreans today who tried to tell me that Samsung tablets and all things Koreans are great; I informed them that Korean/Chinese same same and overpriced shite...

    Korea is crap for shopping. The guitar place was shite. The electronics place was shite. Both claim to be the biggest of their type in the world. Now, both times, I had $500-1000 burning a hole in my pocket, but ended up going home with nothing - very rare for me. Bangkok is very much better (and cheaper) than Seoul for shopping. I was so pissed off, I cancelled my night out in Itewon and just got the train home...



    Even bloody Sony Thailand don't have the Z4 on their website. I've seen loads on ebay coming from Taiwan and HongKong, but I'm pretty worried these are fakes, so don't wanna risk it. Nor do I want the 20% import tax. None on Lazada either. None on my very favourite website: Powerbuy. WTF???

    A phone has all those other distractions.

    A Kindle is a dedicated book reader - much like a book, eh.

    There are days where I turn my phone off. They're nasty little things (when they start controlling your life).

    Bought a couple of Beemers to see what a day in the life of Mr and Mrs. Luigi was like







    Looks like Luigio has pissed off to Bangsaen whilst the neighbour Georgio ponders the lack of airbagios.

    The white one looks alright, but not sure today's impulse buy would fit in the boot.




    Will I print you out a diet plan?

    My LG G3 has crap audio, as does my laptop, so:





    Haven't had time to check them out yet; I'll report back.

    Having problems getting a Sony xperia Z4 tablet, I popped into the iApple shop yesterday and looked at the iPad pro and the iPad 2: crap. The keyboard is crap, the other optional keyboards are crap, the prices are extremely high for what they are. Very underwhelmed...
