Don't believe the hype!

There have been some recalls yes, but Samsung have dealt with the recall really swiftly and subsequently any phone sold after September 15th in the UK (as mentioned) shouldn't suffer. It still supersedes the quality and the samsung galaxy note features outweigh many of it's rivals in my opinion!

Our soldiers are being told not to return their note 7s.

Apparently if they run out of grenades they can chuck their 'phones at the enemy.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
