    Just as it should be. I had my 5K tv fixed relatively recently after the crazy 1 warranty had expired.

    I managed to get some burn in fixed for a client after his 2yo OLED started exhibiting said issue...

    Yep. I just told him that there was a specific firmware update to address burn in, and because it was well after he bought his screen, well, clearly it was an admission of a design flaw and should thus be repaired under warranty, as the firmware update was too late to help him.

    My kids like the Aldi's speccula spread better, but when Woolies did that stuff on intro promo a few weeks back for half price it was heaps better value.

    The cookies pictured on the jar. Treat it like peanut butter or any of the other 'cookie' spreads on the market.

    Most of them taste pretty good, but if you don't like the bikky they use then you probably wont like the spread made from them. Same would go for peanut butter I would imagine, if you don't like the particular peanuts they use you wont like the butter they make no matter how much jam you spread with it.

    I don't think it's something I'd like.

    And it's not something you'd want to buy just to test either. I think the Woolies stuff is nearly $5 a jar and the Aldi stuff might be dearer

    I don't understand the point. Why not just eat biscuits?

    For the same reason people don't put peanuts in a sandwich, or Crunchies, or Cadbury chocolate blocks, they are hard to spread.

    So bought some of the "new" bacon bites things. They start off good, the smokey "bacon" flavour is riding shotgun. Then after about 5 or so there's a pit stop where the spice then kicks the flavour to the back seat and dominates with the flavour of pain. Real shame there. Would be great without the spice.
