Sonos Radio Breaking Up, New Gmail Account, Adding Facebook App to Samsung (Android) phone, Talktalk email problem.
A regular client called me in to sort out several minor problems.
Their Sonos system was breaking up while playing radio stations. I suspect interference from their wireless printer, so we switched off the printer for a week to see if that helps. If so, switch it back on and see if the stuttering radio occurs again. This will be ongoing troubleshooting.
I set up a Google Gmail account for Mrs so we could install the Facebook app on her Samsung Android phone.
Talktalk are changing their email service (again) and emails are taking a long time to get to their account. I advised they should consider moving from Talktalk to Gmail; I advise that everyone should have an email account independent of their ISP (Internet Service Provider) so when they change ISPs they won’t have to move their emails in a hurry.
Sky email moves to Sky Yahoo Mail, and causes problems (no surprise there)
So, Sky Email has switched from Gmail to Sky Yahoo email. That’s like switching from car to a horse-drawn carriage, with a dead horse.
Firstly, you shouldn’t be using your internet provider’s email. If you switch providers, you could lose your email account.
Secondly, if you have a Yahoo (or worse, hotmail) email account, well… Call me an email snob, but they’re a bit, er, naff.
If you want with Sky Yahoo Email, or moving any email account to a better service, please contact me.
